Arise and Shine Uganda is an NGO working to address multiple community needs in the village of Kibuye, Kamuli District. One of AASU’s primary goals is to ensure that all children have access to education. The Ugandan-lead NGO has already built a primary school and is in the process of building a secondary school as well.
In addition, AASU prioritises family-based care for vulnerable children, through their emergency transitional care center, foster care program as well as family preservation. The team at AASU believes that children thrive best in families and they do everything they can to support a child’s right to grow up in a family, rather than institutional care.
