Global Orphans Education Trust

Organization Description: 

Global Orphans Education Trust is a Nation-wide idea which was started to help orphans and vulnerable children, women and the elderly all over the Nation of Uganda especially children who lost their parents due to HIV/ AIDS, it was started in 2010 in Uganda due to the rising number of orphans especially in the rural areas and the increased number of HIV/AIDS death rates, which has left many children unable to access quality education. The Organization also considers parents and Guardians living with HIV/AIDS since most of them cannot access medical care, the organization helps train grass root village health trainers (VHT) in communities to help our social workers in communities to sensitize people living with HIV/AIDS, and also cooperate with community leaders to help uplift the standard of living by teaching people about the dangers of HIV/AIDS and train them on entrepreneurial skills in their communities. The Organization carries out its activities through social workers and volunteers in communities by conducting seminars on Health, Entrepreneurship and giving advice on life protection from HIV/AIDS. The Organization is currently working in Jinja District in Eastern Uganda as well as looking to broaden branches to other Neighboring Districts.
