EDUCATION

Education is an important instrument to achieve development, i.e. reducing poverty and stimulating economic growth. Statistics show that more than 450,000 children are out of school in rural areas in Uganda and yet universal basic education is a critical part of rural development. Most rural families can not afford the direct cost of schooling nor the opportunity cost of having their children away for many hours of the day in low-quality schools.

Under our Education program, we intend to solve this problem through school construction and teacher training, child sponsorship to already established schools, and provision of scholarship and material support.

Health

Uganda’s burden of disease is dominated by communicable diseases, which account for over 55% of morbidity and mortality with Rural areas being affected the most. Malaria, HIV/AIDS, TB, and respiratory, diarrhoeal, epidemic-prone, and vaccine-preventable diseases are the leading causes of illness and death with  Malaria being number one which kills far more Ugandans than HIV/AIDS. The disease weakens most Ugandans and kills many thousands—with children most vulnerable to dying. Children who are already anemic from other common, local parasites are at the very highest risk.   There is no government health plan, although the government tries very hard to set up its own hospitals and medical groups in different areas of the country. The health system lacks resources to recruit, deploy, motivate, and retain human resources especially in rural areas, there is one doctor for at least every 18,000 patients. The country averages at least $18 total health care spending per person per year. 

Under our Health care program, we intend to build local health care facilities, provide mosquito Nets to at least every household in our areas of operation since homes in rural areas have no screens or glass in the windows, these nets create the only place that the community members can go to avoid the mosquitoes. The nets are permanently impregnated with a chemical that kills mosquitoes. We also intend to make sure the young people have access to sexual and reproductive health information and care services, counseling/ Guidance, and Life Skills thus preventing/controlling the spread of HIV/AIDS.

ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

About 10 million people in Uganda live in Poverty which is approximately 27% in percentage terms. More than half of Uganda’s population is deprived in at least two of the seven dimensions of welfare standards and quality of life which include but not limited to Health, Education, income, assets of production, empowerment, food security among others.

 Under our economic empowerment program, we intend to empower vulnerable youth with entrepreneurship skills, vocational skills, agricultural best practices, information technology skills through our ICT Program, financial literacy, and micro-loans to help them start business ventures.

CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM

With the Globally independent and Culturally diverse world, We are giving the youth an opportunity to travel in America acquire knowledge, develop skills and develop intercultural opportunities that they are going to need to thrive in an increasingly multicultural and competitive global community. 

From June -August, in partnership with various organizations of which we share the same vision, Youths between the ages of 18-30 have an opportunity to work as camp counselors at an American Summer Camp for 8 to 10 weeks where they gain new skills, learn to be leaders, make friendships that will last a lifetime and also get a chance to teach their cultures to everyone their interact with at Camp.

CHILD PROTECTION

Vulnerable children of all ages, religious and cultural beliefs across the globe are abused, neglected, exploited and Violated on a daily basis through various forms which include but not limited to rape, child trafficking, child labor,  corporal punishment, female genital mutilation, sexual exploitation through child prostitution, early marriages,  forced marriage, child pornography to mention but a few.

Children undergoing these monstrous conditions can’t exercise other essential rights like Education, Food, Health services, livelihood improvement hence the continuous prevalence of poverty.

Under our Child Protection program in conjunction with families, communities, local institutions, national and international enforcements, we help children understand the law, advocate for them and also train them about their rights focusing on distinct ages groups since all ages are affected differently.
