Thanks so much for taking your time and reading through our profile.
We are a community development project which envisions in bringing socio-economic transformation by educating the less fortunate children. We are legally registered with the local government here in Uganda.
We are undertaking a number of activities that include:-
1. Teaching at our school handling children of ages 3 -14 years.
2. Home based care for orphans and vulnerable children.
3. Young mother's support.
4. Girl child education support.
5. Organic farming.
At the project, we have an ever increasing number of children due to broken families, famine, diseases and the like. They are innocent, curious, they have the energy and are will to learn.
We have internet signal at the project and access in the nearest town. We offer home stay, with a bed, mosquito nets, portable chairs, electricity and water. The available pets are a dog and two rabbits in the compound, with a garden with good nature.

At the school, volunteer in teaching creative arts, English, mathematics, science and social studies, and music. You can also train in other areas like netball, football, volleyball, basketball, and others.
Of recent, one volunteer brought us a laptop and we welcome you to join us for children and adult computer lessons.
We also ask you to come with your laptop or second hand device to help with the computer lessons.
You can dedicate your time to prepare breakfast, lunch or serve the children in porridge and posh. These children always arrive at school on an empty stomach.
Gardening and farming:-
Our economy here is dependent on agriculture. Feel free to to take part in the farming activities as we dig, plant or harvest crops like maize, beans, bananas, eggplants and trees. Some of the crops are used to feed the children and project staffs while others are sold off to support the project programs.
We are in the process of building more classrooms, fencing the school, building a healthcare center, a library and the school play ground but we do not have all the capacity, expertise and resources. If anyone is willing to help, you are welcome.
The other areas which require attention include computer training, art and craft, fundraising and promoting the works of our organization for more partnerships.
