Long term objectives.
• To start and establish income-generating projects that
will help the organization move towards self-sustenance and
away from continued dependence on generous contributions. Projects
such as farming can be both financially productive but also
highly educative to the children. Many children also have talents
that can be developed, nurtured and exploited to their benefit,
such as artistic talents.
• To develop the village and the organization to come to a position where it can create jobs and provide employment to many of its current beneficiaries after they finish school. This will be possible through the opening up of more projects including the proposed primary school and medical center.
• Develop the current child beneficiaries into leaders who will run the affairs of the organization after the founders retire.
• To increase our capacity to care for more children. This includes construction of living quarters and provision of more facilities. Uganda has been fortunate enough to survive the last two civil wars, in the north and west of Uganda, however the number of orphaned and destitute children seems to remain steadily high probably due to diseases such as HIV/AIDS and malaria. We would like to expand the village to care for those that are recent victims.
Immediate Proposed Projects
We have a proposal to construct an adequate primary school at the village ground because of the high number of primary school going children we currently have at the village. This high number takes up the greatest portion of our budget and as such we are sure to save that amount if we actually have the school owned and operated by the village itself.
We have also proposed the construction of a medical facility. We currently do not have a single structure reserved for medical care yet the total number of beneficiaries at the village is nearly 400. This medical facility should be well equipped to deal with medical emergencies since we are very far from the government hospital and emergencies cannot be handled at such a distance.
Given the right amount of resources, we would also like to construct a secondary or tertiary institution to help train and equip the older children with life skills that continue to help them to develop into well adjusted productive citizens.
