American charity helping women, children and young people in rural Uganda

Requested by

Uganda Rural Fund

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

We focus on empowering AIDS orphans, kids in child-headed families, underprivileged youth, and women in rural communities. We strive to provide opportunities for education and sustainable development so they can become self-reliant. We believe that education is the best way to effect long-term transformation in individuals and communities.

Leadership Development is a major component of our work. Without strong leadership from within the community, we cannot see sustainable development. We also provide entrepreneurship and small business skills training.

We run multiple community projects in rural villages focusing on the root causes of poverty—lack of education and economic development opportunities. We have set up two schools for kindergarten and vocational secondary education.

We aim to provide the young generation with practical skills to empower them to become champions of development within their communities. We have set up a community library and computer centre to facilitate educational development.

Through the Village Banking programme we give women access to small loans so they can start small businesses and be able to support their families.
We have installed water systems in schools to alleviate the problem of lack of clean water.

We also have a medical clinic, conduct medical camps, and train village health workers. We focus on community health promoting preventative care than treatment with a goal of building healthier communities.

We want to continue to run our projects, and need funds to do so.
