HUGS started raising money for schools and education in Uganda and Rwanda back in 1995. Since then 5 schools been built, one is in progress and a seventh started build in at the end of 2016 and is halfway to completion.

Many hundreds of children have benefited and there are currently nearly 1200 children at the schools.

We also support an orphanage at Lira and have a scholarship programme with 52 students at school, college or university. We helped to build St Gabriel's Home for Orphans at Fort Portal in 2016

The big projects in 2017 will be developing and expanding the Asili Girls Secondary School in Lira, Northern Uganda
