Our mission is to raise the living standards of the underprivileged people in Wakiso District through the provision of ongoing HIV/AIDS, health and education support, vocational skills development, and start-up resources for income generation.

Our Goals

• At least 550 presently out of school OVCs in Wakiso district and surrounding communities will receive school sponsorship and education support.
• Low-income earners, HIV/AIDS infected and affected families, teen mothers and people with disabilities living in Wakiso District will have increased access to skills development opportunities and income generation projects.
• All resident in Wakiso District will have greater access to safe water and sanitation improving overall community health.
