There are over two and a half million orphans in Uganda. Many of these children will have lost their parents at an early age to diseases such as AIDS. BkB works to ensure that the orphans do not have to face life alone. The challenges they face are complex and interrelated. Living conditions, health care and education need to evolve together.
We believe all the basic needs of a child must be taken care of for the child to thrive.
Orphans should remain in their own homes. We help orphans to:
oooooostrengthen their relationships with their extended families & communities
oooooohold on to their property rights
ooooooacquire the knowledge and skills to become financially self-sufficient
In order to carry out these aims we have 6 linked projects:
Water, Health, Agriculture, Income Generation,
Education, Children’s Rights.
