To support people living in small village areas in building lives of hope, dignity, and self-sufficiency through programs of education, health and vocational training.
To fight and advocate for the rights of women and children, and the environment by organizing workshops and education platforms to village people.
To provide opportunities for people in all parts of Uganda, United states and the rest of the world to participate in these efforts through collaboration and partnerships with entities of similar visions.
