Uganda is located in northeast Africa and its the Pearl of Africa. It is known for its lakes and mountainous landscapes, tea plantations, healthy populations of most wild beasts, as well as a large group of endangered silverback mountain gorillas. Mbale presents another picture. Wars, AIDS, terrorists, a high birth rate, corrupt government, and unplanned urbanization have all contributed to the collapse of the countrys covenant with its children.
Out of a total population of 40 million people in Uganda, more than 7 million are orphans and vulnerable children. Many of these abandoned, homeless, sick, war-ravaged, addicted, hungry, terrified children come from their villages to Mbale City, hoping to find work or relief from the deplorable conditions they have left behind. But soon the harsh realities become clear, as very young children, left to their resources, have to forage for food and keep themselves safe from drugs, disease, and predators.
To transform lives of the children, educate, nature them, and explore their gifts and talents to be an inspiration to the world.
To revive hopes of the unprivileged, at-risk and disadvantaged children through music, education, sports, vocational skills, providing them with a home, protection and instilling hope to create reliable and a self-sustaining citizen.
