Bright Kids Uganda is a home for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and the war in Northern Uganda. It strives to provide a healthy, safe and loving home. They come from dangerous pasts and with the funds I raise I would like to improve their security.

Bright Kids Uganda was founded by Victoria Nalongo Namusisi when she could no longer just visit the kids on the streets of Kampala or in the Internally Displaced Persons camps of Northern Uganda. Over the past ten years she has given her life to providing security and shelter to children that have been left most vulnerable in Uganda. Many of the kids are orphans of HIV/AIDS. Most are from Northern Uganda, where they have endured the hardship and fear of a conflict that has been fought for over 20 years. They experienced kidnappings and escapes and have finally made it to the safety of Bright Kids Uganda. This being said, their homes are not walled in and while the area they live in is relatively safe, a wall and gate is needed to provide them with the security they deserve.

I have spent two months with Bright Kids Uganda. I have seen the hard work of Victoria, her staff and the children. While I see the potential in sustainable projects I also see a need. There is a need to improve the living standards for the kids. This is what I am fundraising for. I want to

• Finish the wall
• Put in a gate
• Clear land for gardening
• Buy new mattresses, sheets and blankets
• Restore tap
• Install water harvesters for rain water

There are many other projects that can be funded if you would rather see your money going towards something else and they will be added to the group site soon. Do not hesitate to email me with more questions about Bright Kids Uganda or these projects.

Thank you so much for your support!
