We have been established since 2003 supporting small villages in eastern Uganda. Our aim is to help improve the quality of life of both adults and children. Working as a humanitarian, community based organisation, we have delivered a number of sustainable community projects including the building of a school hostel for girls and a large community centre, supporting over 20 women's groups and more than 50 students educated along with livelihood projects for young people.
During school holidays we had many many activities planned for our youths in the Bulambuli community as part of the AVS Youth and Education programme. We planned for football, Health Education through sport (HIV/AIDS education) and community clean up. With three full kits donated by Liverpool Football Club we were able to get our football team up and running with great participation of the children and youths. We had over 16 teams participate with requests from a further 7!
