Caring for and educating the least of these for a brighter future.

Children around Bwindi suffer from poverty, abuse and neglect. Faced with a lack of education and life skills, many become homeless or have been run off by abusive parents or situations. Also, the Bwindi community faces certain challenges that prevent children from escaping the cycle of poverty.

was founded to rescue these children and provide a safe home.
BCU provides free education programs to orphans and other
needy children from the community through its private school to
prepare children with the skills they need to succeed.
