No Parents. No Food. No Future.
Stranded in Sub-Saharan Africa, orphaned by an AIDS epidemic, thousands of children are left on their own... needing a shepherd to save them.
The Road to Hope!
Visit an African country and one of the first things you'll notice is that there are children everywhere. Their voices fill the air as they laugh or recite their lessons in a sing-song fashion. They love having their pictures taken and meeting visitors. But many have few reasons to laugh and education is nearly impossible to obtain.
In Uganda, as is the case throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, more and more children are being orphaned as a result of losing one or both parents to HIV/AIDS and cancer. With no bread winner to support them, they often are forced to drop out of school and look for casual jobs such as selling ground nuts on the streets in urban areas or begging for money in order to survive.
Child caregivers often are the primary caregivers to a parent or parents facing serious, end-of-life issues. The Road to Hope program was created as a viable resource for some child caregivers who could very easily find themselves on a much different road were it not for the assistance it provides.
