Family Care Uganda is a team of full-time, non-salaried volunteers. FCU has been registered in Uganda for 10 years and their main focus is establishing a fully self-sustained project for orphans in Gulu who were born to child soldiers during the war. They are developing a horticultural farm, building housing and a school for the children, and hope to bring alternative ideas for poverty eradication to the local communities in the area.
FCU is developing a fully self-sustainable project by building a farm into the school in order to help the school become economically self-reliant. In addition to academic training and sports, the students will also be taught animal husbandry and farming - allowing them to contribute to the sucess of the school and broaden their skill set.
