Areas of work: AViCA is currently working in Kibaale and Nakaseke Districts in Uganda. The priority of the organization so far has been on orphans and children with disabilities forgotten in villages. There are 192 children orphans in the program organized under St.John Bosco orphans’ project. There are 8 disabled children in the program organized under “Save the disabled” project. The number keeps growing as more people learn more about the projects. The orphans and disabled children both live in their adopted families and are supported from there in partnership with the family of adoption. Gradually, the organization will extend services to other areas in Uganda and other countries especially in the Great Lakes Region. The region has experienced political instability, civil wars, genocide and movement of refugees.
