OUR BACKGROUND

Arlington Academy of Hope (AAH) Uganda, and its sister organization in the USA called REACH for Uganda, were founded in 2004 by John and Joyce Wanda, immigrants from Uganda who had settled in the USA in 1996. AAH Uganda is a non-governmental organization that serves the children and people of Uganda, specifically in the three rural districts of Bududa, Manafwa and Namisindwa.  Its mission is to help transform rural communities in Uganda via education, health care, and community development.  To achieve these goals, we have built a model primary school in Bududa district called Arlington Junior School (AJS) that educates 500 students.

OUTREACH PROGRAM

AAH supports 26 government and private primary schools in the three districts with education resources, workshops and girl mentorship programs.

GIRLS PROGRAMMING

The department is dedicated to ensure that girls are empowered, know their rights and make good life choices.

Better housing

We support the initiative to cement floors of houses to improve quality of life in homes through better hygiene practices.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

Through our partner RAIS, we have given soft loans to 90 beneficiaries since 2022 to start and boost businesses.

SPONSORSHIP

Our students are sponsored to get quality education from Arlington Junior School and outreach schools through secondary to University.
