This unique program employs a holistic approach. Families enrolled in this program and living in deep poverty in Uganda are able to provide a stable, healthy environment for their children. The whole family has access to resources related to parenting, health care and business, and one child per family attends a private school. Together, all members of the family work to build a sustainable future.
