Understanding the need

The PaigeGage World Wide Classroom is working to make change in the lives of children in this area of Uganda with our support of the Bwindi Universal Nursery and Primary School.

Uganda had been traumatized by the previous conflict in the Eastern Providences of the Congo only 10 kilometers from the school. The far too causal acts of violence on the remote villages caused many to flee the Congo. Through years of conflict, many children have been orphaned and separated from their families. While the community is faced with extreme poverty and diseases like HIV/AIDS and Malaria, the children were welcomed into the homes of the families and cared for.
