Our mission is to advocate for economic, cultural, and social development for disadvantaged girls, women, and children in Northern Uganda. We carry out this mission through an integrated, holistic commitment to personal transformation with a primary focus on educational sponsorship, vocational training skills, and partnerships with local schools and community organizations.
