What we do:

A lot of efforts and calories are wasted because children are involved in labour force especially at the domestic level. Immunity among the children is also becoming weaker due to daily out break of diseases and lack of food nutrients. Indeed, children need vegetables to have vitamins and study well while in class.
Furthermore, lack of vocational training services has the devastating potential to create a severe of economic impacts. Young people have struggled with life and lacked direction during their productive years which has contributed greatly in affecting the development and economic out-put of the country. Therefore, we organize workcamps to address such challenges. We are here with a vegetable planting work camp for our partner school in Wakiso district.
We focus on the empowerment of both in and out of school youths with vocational skills. We also do our best to keep them out of current dangers such as HIV/AIDS and early pregnancy. Breaking the York of vulnerability and having good working environment, enable them to obtain a successfully and desirable life, and more globally, to eradicate poverty in Uganda.

For that, we need:
– To equip the youth with vocational and technical skills
– To contribute towards environmental conservation and management
– To provide financial and moral support to vulnerable youths.
