Family Care Uganda has been registered in Uganda since 1999 and our main focus is establishing a fully self-sustained project for orphans in Gulu who were born to child soldiers during the war. We are developing a horticultural farm, building housing and have built a primary school for the children. We plan to bring alternative solutions and ideas for poverty eradication to the local communities in the area which has one of the highest children-per-adult rates in the country.
