Buyamba Community

HIV and AIDS are prevalent across Uganda and has orphaned many children who are at great risk of exploitation. We have been partnering with the Buyamba Community since 2006.

We’re working to improve diagnosis and treatment of HIV and AIDs by upskilling health staff and providing greater access to healthcare. To ensure orphaned children have access to education we are improving local schools and creating community support systems through increased farming income.

We have already achieved great things in the Buyamba community by making sure schools are a healthy place to learn and ensuring water is available and well managed.  

We’re working with the people of Buyamba to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Buyamba for over 10 years and now we’re working on some final projects to ensure the hard work will last for generations to come. We are supporting Buyamba to grow in leadership, knowledge and skills so they can take over all the projects we have worked on together and are equipped to develop new initiatives to sustain a community where children can thrive. 

We plan for our partnership to continue until 2020 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
