L.E.A.D Uganda is an educational leadership initiative for abandoned children affected by AIDS, war, and poverty.
We locate the brightest children living on the edges of society—AIDS orphans, former child soldiers, child laborers. We enroll them in the best schools, help them climb to the top of their class, and propel them to university. Our children are transformed into leaders: teachers, doctors, entrepreneurs. Instead of remaining victims, they will be able to lead Africa into the 21st Century.
