This year we have been very fortunate to have a talented and major contributor to our team in Uganda, Cara Picton. Cara has undertaken various humanitarian work in Europe and Africa and as part of the work Cara has been doing for us she has been working with Joseph Wosikra from Home of Talent to create a new video to support our Vulnerable Programme which we hope to launch shortly.

Bulambuli is a deprived rural area of eastern Uganda where Muyembe is situated and AVS has their central base. Some 80% of its population (total around 150,000) are subsistence farmers who live beneath the poverty line. We have identified that there is a need to address School Drop-Outs, and Unemployed Youths living within the villages of Bulambuli District, with a Vocational Training Scheme.
The programme plans to enhance the employability of 100 recent school drop-outs (aged 16-22) and unemployed youths (22-30) – both male and female, within the first one year period. For more information on our work in this area click here.
