    Description

    We are a registered C.B.O-N.G.O in Buikwe communities of Uganda. It was started by a group of devoted and children loving persons to see to it that these children of God get the best needs as any other children.

    The project works with children whose rights have been abused, orphans, HIV/AIDS affected children, street children within and around Buikwe

    This organization was started as soon as I finished my secondary school (college) in away of thanking God , so I looked at any thing I can do to help children in the community so I came up with this idea for orphan children, HIV/AIDs infected, vulnerable children in our community since a lot of these children were not getting education.

    This area is comprised of 400 house holds of which 57% have been infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. And 70% of the families are run by sickly jobless widows and elderly.60% of the school going children in this local council 1. Do not go to school due to lack of funds for school fees, scholastic materials and proper guidance.

    This problem has turned this community into a den of law – breakers, a street- kid’s factory and a young generation into a public nuisance which has hindered the progress of development in the area and contributed to the factors of spreading HIV/AIDS Virus in the community.
