The Nikibasika Development Program provides a home and long-term education for orphaned and vulnerable youth in Kasese, Uganda. Our focus is to help these young adults become self-sustaining leaders in their communities. Each participant is supported with formal education beyond secondary school, and more important, with leadership development, career guidance, global and human rights awareness. Each young person also participates in a team where they create and lead a community-development project that helps people in need in their local area.
Approximately 97% of funds go directly to the program on the ground in Uganda; the only money spent in Canada relates to minimal costs associated with maintaining legal status and financial accountability as a charity.
