Welcome to Building Foundations of Hope!
BFoH is a non-profit organization creating sustainable community based programs targeted at breaking the cycle of poverty by empowering, educating, encouraging and loving those in it. We are currently focusing our efforts on orphaned children, widowed women and the HIV positive population in Kibaale, Uganda.
We have discovered several major areas of concern and have come up with several community based sustainable programs targeted at breaking the cycle of poverty. We have identified that a lack of education and opportunity for young women and girls, care for orphaned children and care and education for those affected with HIV/AIDS are among the most pressing issues we are working with. We are in the process of raising money to build a Community Center and to fund our local projects in Uganda.
Some of our local projects include: girls leadership retreats, women empowerment groups, men’s sports leagues and accountability groups, adult education classes, HIV testing, counseling and education, Child development training, planting crops, nutritional education and more.
BFoH is very intentional in not giving hand outs but offering a hand up. It is our goal to empower men, women and children to break the cycle of poverty they have fallen into. It is our hope to see every child in school, boys and girls alike. To see every child have a home to live in and a safe person caring for them. We want girls to know that they are not second class citizens and that they can be anything they want to be. We hope to foster a community who loves each other and helps each other through thick and thin.
We have partnered with a local Anglican Church in Kibaale and work with a wonderful team of leaders. We have an entire board of Building Foundations of Hope Uganda and have even hired our very first employee, a social worker who runs our programs and cares for the children in our care.
We are very excited about all of our programs we have going on and encourage you to take a
look at our website and check out our podcast series for more details of who we are and what we do. We are always looking for volunteers, interns and financial partners. If you feel you might be interested in getting involved, please contact us though the contact page.
