Our charity founders (Mike & Coral Parsons) had the vision to help some of the poorest children in Uganda to forge brighter futures. As teachers in the UK, they placed a strong emphasis on education and had a keen awareness of the importance of community engagement, partnering with local families and community leaders since 1992. In those early days, we worked out of one site, supporting vulnerable children through primary and secondary school while catering for other urgent needs such as medical treatment and, where necessary, accommodation. Today education and community remain at the heart of what we do. We now work out of two village locations and continue to support the education and welfare of hundreds of children; some directly through our child sponsorship programme, others through attendance at our local infant and primary school in Kisimula village.
