Bukedea CarePoint aims to support orphans in the poor, urban area along the Bukedea/Mbale highway. They have little to no access to clean water or nutritious food due to poverty, family breakdown and the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Their life situation dictates that the children survive by means of child labor, begging, and even sexual exploitation. Lack of parental guidance has caused education to become an option too expensive for children to take. Many children have dropped out of school because of tuition prices, teenage pregnancies, and early marriages. This lack of education perpetuates the already dangerous cycle of poverty amongst the children in this community.
Your sponsorship participation in Bukedea aids in the survival of these children, and ultimately their success as children of God. The Bukedea CarePoint currently cares for more than 220 orphaned and vulnerable children in the region.
