Catastrophically, the HIV/AIDS pandemic along with other endemic tropical diseases such as malaria, have killed many parents in Uganda. In traditional Ugandan society the children of deceased parents became the responsibility of other supportive adults within the extended family structure. Under the umbrella of the extended family, there was always another adult willing and capable of filling the supportive role of a missing parent, such as an uncle, aunt, cousin, grandparent or older sibling. Unfortunately, this supportive structure is collapsing from the enormous losses caused by HIV/AIDS. As a result, many children are left to suffer a very impoverished and hopeless existence.

Moved by this unfortunate situation, a group of Americans and Ugandans have formed Uganda Children's Fund Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the needy children of Uganda.

Uganda Children's Fund Inc. is planning to build and operate a residential complex near Jinja, Uganda, where orphaned children and impoverished single-surviving parent families can find refuge from the ravages of poverty. The complex will be composed of family oriented living quarters, primary school, technical-trade school, and farm.

The goal of Uganda Children's Fund Inc. is to rescue impoverished children and provide a secure and supportive village-like environment where resident single-surviving parents can contribute as the "foster" parents of orphaned children. It is a further goal to provide the children with a future..... based upon a quality primary education and practical technical training in trade skills, modern agriculture and technology.

The founders of Uganda Children's Fund Inc. are determined to do their small part in rescuing at least "some" of the children who's lives have been devastatingly disrupted.
