BoHU Fundraising Tour

(15 Days in Uganada)

Children orphaned due to AIDS are cut off from critical access to healthcare, education, and basic necessities. While African extended families traditionally support orphans, the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic has over-burdened this traditional safety net. Foster families and guardians, who have limited resources due to Africa’s chronic poverty and underdevelopment, are often not equipped to assist the growing number of orphans. BoHU provides sponsorship through education and care to AIDS orphans.

BoHU activities include Education, social activities, and basic healthcare are provided for students. Programs to strengthen the lives of students and the local community, including guardians, are student-driven anti-AIDS education, adult education and nutrition programs. For more details visit

The organization focuses on children who have not been attending school, due to a lack of school fees and other social problems. BoHU is helping to mitigate the impacts of an illiterate society and provide these children with a future. By 2015, there will be 2600 Children in the sponsorship program.
