We are a community based organization in Uganda that started in 2011 with the vision to improve and restore hope to orphans, vulnerable children and young people. This was after the 2010 massive deadly landslides that happened in Bududa district of eastern Uganda.The tragedy claimed over 200 lives, property and live stock due to the above ,many children and young people were left homeless, orphaned and hopeless.
Our organization therefore was started to restore hope to the hurting.
We are located in the town centre of the district 1 hr drive from Mbale city and 4hrs from Kampala city.
We have through the years supported over 80 children and young people especially through education,and currently we have only 22 kids under our care.The children are supported through their house holds and only come together on Saturday.
They will learn new language,new places,tour various places and understand children better.
We request volunteers to assist in home visits to establish the daily challenges of children and caregivers and writing reports.
To assist in life skills education using our manuals, help with games for both boys and girls and other community programs as we will be organizing.
Assist in designing a website if possible.
We will provide a permanent house, a single room with 2 beds and mosquito nets
