  • Description


    I am a catholic and an ex seminarian who previously worked with a charity helping hydrocephalus patients get operated in a local hospital in Uganda. And since the charity i was working for was linked to a political group they didnt contine helping the patients when they lost the political office , i therefore moved back to Mbale where my home is but due to a lot of loitering children who are not school going, i decided to give a hand using my little resources i earn through the sales and marketing job i am currently doing. I wanted to see children go to school, but i discovered i couldnt do it single handed, thats the reason i decided to skill their mothers (the widows) to help handle some basics and also to help this chikdren debelop talents ro create a change in their lives, This gave birth to a charity organization supporting orpahns and vulnerable children, widows leave a better life with skills imparted at the project and also support to the HIV /AIDs patients counselling and help. We have currently trained the widows on hands on skills to help them work and get basics for their homes.
