Blessed Vison For Africa(BVA) aids orphan,needy and Marginalized Elderly persons in the Budaka region of eastern Uganda by enabling them to attend school and thus prepare for a better life.And to keep their hopes and aspirations unclouded.
These children are being fostered by relatives or church families after losing one or both parents. Most of these foster families earn less than $20 per month, and many already have multiple children of their own whom they are struggling to support. Thus they lack the funds to provide these fostered orphans the education which can provide them a more promising future.
BVA was created to address these needs. We provide otherwise unavailable funds for school fees, uniforms, and supplies, as well as clothing, mosquito nets, and food assistance to the foster families so that these orphans can attend school. A local Board of Directors reviews, accepts, and then monitors the participants to ensure they are receiving the supplies, attending school, and maintaining good grades.
One of the requirements for continued sponsorship is that the students attend church regularly so they are nurtured spiritually as well as physically and educationally. As a result of the Christmas 2009 project, each child in the program received a Bible so they can grow in a personal relationship with their God and learn to live the holy, happy lives God intends for them
Because all donations to go directly to aid the orphans, the founders of BVA personally pay 100% of all administrative costs, . The remaining members of the Board of Directors are volunteers who are not monetarily compensated in any way.
