We support communities in rural Uganda establish brick-wall classrooms for the schools so they can have a better quality education environment. Some schools here have classes under trees or in mud buildings that are easily swept away by weather conditions. 2. Take a volunteer safari as a doctor/dentist/nurse or entire medical team help facilitate health education in the villages and help equip and empower the locals with information to address infections that are easily personally addressable yet.
The Ugandan population is presently estimated at 31 million people. Of this over 60% are below the age of 18 and school going. Universal Primary Education(UPE) a government program that allows free education for all elementary school going children has seen immense response that has led to overcrowding of schools and eminent shortage of infrastructure and scholastic materials, some children hold their classes under Mango trees- a good gesture but not very weather-friendly.
As part of our community initiatives, we help set up medical facilities ie dispensaries/clinics in rural parts of Uganda to help in the health sector that is suffering greatly. From recent statistics, Malaria claims up to 320 people per day in Uganda, this makes it the number one killer ahead of HIV/AIDS. The doctor-patient distribution is 1 doctor to over 1,000 patients. A majority of Ugandans will spend their lives without ever having access to a doctor.
