The BESO Foundation has been serving rural Uganda since 2010.
WHO IS BESO FOUNDATION?
BESO Foundation is a Ugandan non-profit that works in rural Uganda to build and support schools, provides scholarships to children in need, mentors teachers and organizes families into savings groups with micro-credits to improve income to help pay for their children’s education. In everything we do, we place children and their caretakers first. Since 2010 we have provided more than 1,000 children access to affordable quality education and supported more than 500 families.
Today the BESO Foundation focuses on quality education, as well as improving livelihoods for rural families through supporting and empowering mothers.
OUR FAMILY CENTERED APPROACH
The first aspect of our Family Centered Approach is to provide formal and vocational education to empower young people with skills that enable them to be contributing members of their communities.
This is coupled with household agricultural, village savings and loan associations and business trainings that are designed to create economically productive communities. As a result families are better able to keep children in school, ensure food security, increase incomes and achieve higher standards of living.
