PROJECTS

Nodding Syndrome

We care for Nodding Syndrome victims and provide clothing and shelter. Through partnerships, we will fund research into understanding the nature and causes of Nodding Syndrome among children.

Primary Schools 

Ability to read and write is vital for any community. We maintain and improve primary schools attendance and participation by provision of lunches and sports equipment. We also pay school fees for children who are unable to attend schools.

Orphans and Widows 

It is everyone's responsibility to look after the orphans and widows. We care for orphans and widows through provision of school fees for education, clothes, food and counseling.

Disability ​

Disability can happen to anyone but we must support those with a disability. They are functional members of the community. We support families of children with Nodding syndrome, River blindness through financial assistance and counseling and linking them to mainstream services, which are paid by Acholi Resilience. We also prescribe disability equipment to children and adult requiring equipment to perform ADLs.

Microfinance

 

We provide financial assistance to small businesses and farmers for setup and maintenance.

Boreholes 

We dig and repair boreholes, which are broken down. Previous aid organisations dug thousands of boreholes in Acholi communities to provide clean drinking water. These boreholes are now broken down without repair.

HIV/AIDS 

It is everyone responsibility to look after the orphans and widows especially for HIV/AIDS, which is highly stigmatized and stereotyped. We care for orphans and widows through provision of school fees for education, clothes, food and counseling.
