Institution description:
Beacon of Hope Uganda designs and conducts programs which contribute to the welfare and social productivity of disadvantaged individuals and communities with an emphasis on children and youth. BoHU addresses some of the most pervasive problems in rural Uganda, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, hunger, education, poverty, access to clean drinking water, and orphaned children. In addition, it focusses on empowering the youth of Uganda empowering them with different skills and leadership training.

BoHU is founded on the principles that our shared values and commonalities as human beings are more important than our individual differences. We therefore operate on a non-political, non-denominational, and non-sectarian basis, welcoming all world citizens to contribute to our work and every Ugandan in need.

BoHU reaches out to the furthest and most abandoned communities in the rural areas of Uganda including its islands. Amongst these are the Bevuma islands which are hard to reach and under – served by the government and Ugandan NGO’s. Through educating Ugandans on diseases awareness & prevention, and fostering the creation of self sustaining projects run by the local community, BoHU aims to achieve its mission.

A number of short term and long term goals have been established so far and now we are in position to attract volunteers for short-term (7 days to 2 months) and long-term volunteers (3 months to 6 months).

Mission: Helping people to help themselves out of poverty and create (financial) independence amongst our beneficiaries through effective community education and the development of projects, creating a self-supporting, self-sustaining community in a rapidly changing world.

Vision: Providing resources to achieve sustainable development in under-resourced areas and for BoHU to become a self-sustaining non-government organization in its efforts in Uganda.

BoHU is a movement dedicated to supporting quality sustainable development in targeted under-resourced communities, with programs in Uganda.

We are committed to helping individuals fulfill their potential and play meaningful roles in shaping their communities.

The focus of our programs is on providing resources for sustainable development in under-resourced communities. In order to uplift the youngest of our society however, it is often necessary to first assist adults and overall communities in which they live.
