What Your Gift Will Do
Your gift will support the livlihoods and education of families and children in rural Uganda.
BESO Foundation and our team is sustainably improving the lives of children and women in rural Uganda through access to quality education, health services and economic empowerment. We build schools, provide scholarships to the poorest of the poor children, mentor teachers and organise families into village savings groups.
The organisation was founded by Aaron Bukenya in 2008. Aaron grew up in Bugerere County and was the only child in his village sent to the capital to enjoy a quality education. As an adult Aaron observed the vast differences in his quality of life in comparison to his siblings and neighbors. Since 2010 BESO has provided 864 children access to quality education and implemented agriculture and business training initiatives to over 500 rural women farmers in Bugerere County.
