OUR VISION
:We visualise a community where young people and neglected adults have the opportunity to influence decisions that affect theirdevelopment; and to develop skills that will help them attain sustainable living.
OUR MISSION:
 To develop partnerships with under privileged young people in Uganda, in order to drastically improve their quality of life, to providesustainable levels of comfort and access to opportunities for self improvement.Secondarily, we want to involve impoverished adults in the social/ economic development programs.
PROBLEM STATEMENT:
The HIV/ AIDS epidemic in Uganda has decimated the adult population in many rural villages, leaving scores of orphaned children missingeither one or both parents. Many of these children are infected with the HIV virus themselves.According to the 2002 Uganda population and housing census in our area of operation of Kyarsuozi sub-county in Kyenjojo district, there are3,613 orphaned children. Some of these orphans are living in child headed families, while others are looked after by elderly and infirmcaregivers often incapable of providing the full needs required by children such as nutrition, security, education and domestic care. Sometimesthere are as many as 10 orphans living in one home with mud walls and roofs thatched with banana leaves. They don’t have access to properfootwear, and many are blighted by jigger parasites.The standard of living in the village homesteads is often phenomenally poor; the household occupants often lack a healthy diet resulting inmalnutrition. There is limited education among the orphans, as there is a lack of money for school fees, or even basic scholastic materials suchas pencils and books.Child abuse is rife in these areas, with corporal punishment, sexual harassment and early marriages being forced upon many of the orphans.The caregivers are usually too young or too old to interfere, the children therefore have no choice but to suffer in science, without a voice todefend them.
