The Kisoboka Initiative for Progress in Uganda is helping to transform the lives of hundreds of children and young adults in the vllage of Bakka.
Sandy Gannon is one of the co-founders of the Kisoboka Project in Uganda. She recently spoke with MNI Media, telling us of the transformation of many lives in Uganda via the projects the Kisoboka Initiative undertakes.
For example, because of the Kisoboka Initiative, eight bore holes have been constructed in the village of Bakka to solve the problem of water scarcity. Children always had to walk long distances to access water, MNI was told. Also, the water source was usually a pond shared with cows, which made the water unhealthy.
Because of people’s generosity contributing to the Kisoboka Project, the Initiative also provides education to over five hundred children, some in primary school (Kisoboka Academy), some in secondary schools, some in universities and tertiary institutions. Others are doing trade courses, something that would not have been possible without the Kisoboka Project.
The project also provides health care to every child in the education program together with their guardians. Some of these medical cases in the village of Bakka have been so severe that children were at the edge of death and had it not been for the intervention of Kisoboka, these children would have lost their lives.
The Project is looking to now build a high school in Uganda to cater for he further educational development of the children in the village. Sandy gives details in our interview on how much funding they are seeking to raise for this project, and the need for this high school to become a reality in Bakka.
