BENEFITING: WORLDWIDE FOUNDATION FOR CREDIT UNIONS INC
The World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) began working with the Busia Orphanage, or Busia Compassionate Children's Centre, in 2007. After working for several years to improve the lives of the children by improving their safety at home, increasing the quality of their education, and ensuring they receive proper nutrition, WOCCU is preparing to construct new additions to the children's home that will allow them to accomodate the growing number of children in need while also increasing the children's safety, health, and living conditions.
Considering that 1/3 of the children at Busia Orphanage are HIV positive, and that many lost both of their parents due to the disease, we need to provide these children with the necessary building blocks to have a shot at living happier, healthier, fulfilling lives. The ultimate goal of the funds raised, from the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, is to build sustainable new facilities at the orphanage. For example, a new well for clean water, toilets, or a dining hall so that the children don't have to eat on the ground or standing up every day. By providing new buildings, supporting financial literacy initiatives, growing vegetable gardens and building composting sites, the orphanage will be equipped with the tools it needs to become self-sustainable. Be a part of the catalyst for change and help us build for Busia.
