Uganda: Community Projects

Civil war, extreme poverty and AIDS pandemic in Africa is creating orphans and widows on a scale unrivaled in world history. It is estimated that there are more than 30 million orphaned children in sub Saharan Africa alone. For many of these women and children, access to even the simplest of things, food, shelter, clean water and education are out of their reach.

Empowering the next generation

These are the children of Asayo’s Wish Foundation; the future leaders of development work.  Never before have we seen a collective of children with more hope, drive, and ambition to change the future .  Orphans of war, AIDS, rampant unrest, and disease—they have demonstrated a resiliency not often found in children of their age or size. Over the past few years, watched as they mentored, supported, and empowered each other.

We’ve partnered with Asayo’s Wish Foundation in housing and caring for children who have been orphaned, abandoned or whose parents were temporarily unable to care for them because of illness or poverty.
