  • Description

    Description

    We are Eddy and Eva - a young couple living on wanyange hill in Jinja, we run a non-profit organisation in our community empowering over 150 children through providing education and holistic care. We believe that through educating the at-risk child will secure a sustainable bright future.

    Our community school serves children from 3 to 10 years mostly from disadvantaged families and some orphans living with guardians. we also regularly conduct skills training for women equipping them with hands-on skills in hair dressing, tailoring, back yard gardening and product making(soap, candles, paper bag among others).

    Over the years, we have collaborated and worked with volunteers from across the world. Volunteers play an important part in our work. From Teaching at the school, playing with the children,dance class, community outreach, skills training, counseling, fundraising, construction, administration and research.

    The Communities we serve are grappling with high levels of poverty and unemployment. we do not believe in hand outs but a hand up through education and sustainable empowerment.

    We greatly really on the service, time and support of passionate people like you who come and make a difference though the various community projects.

    Please feel free to get in touch and collaborate with us
