About Us

The project aims at providing care to vulnerable and orphaned in Kabale Diocese.

Education is the key to success and the project does everything to support children from primary school to vocational school & university.

Our objective is to identify vulnerable children in the Diocese and provide consistent assistance with their education, health care, and daily needs.

We ensure that compassionate, quality assistance is given to these children, with a high standard of care and respect for their individual dignity and well-being throughout their childhood and educational career. We believe in consistent support and provide care for all of our children from the time they are enrolled in school until they graduate.

​​Our Mission

Our mission is to provide assistance for the daily needs, health care, and education of orphaned and vulnerable children in six districts of southwestern Uganda.

The project empowers communities through increasing education in underserved communities throughout the six districts of Kabale, Rubanda, Kisoro, Kanungu, Rukungiri and Rukiga.

Our Vision

We believe that strong support systems and quality education are the gateway to success. We work to see an increase in graduation rates, community development and empower children through education.
