Breadwinner Children

In collaboration with the ONG Comboni Samaritans of Gulu CSG

In Northern Uganda, which has suffered more than 20 years of civil war and where the rate of AIDS infections is dramatically high, the number of orphans is constantly increasing.

Since 2010, Byelo has supported the breadwinner children project, which includes more than a hundred groups of orphans. They have all lost both parents and it is the eldest of the children who has to take over the responsibility of providing a living for the younger brothers and sisters.

Byelo is committed to finding solutions for extremely precarious situations and to supporting the healthy growth and formation of children left alone, without guidance, without roots. Among many other things, we provide skills training, we buy land and we build houses for these young ‘families’ to have them possibly start to write a new chapter of their life and create the foundations of their own future.
