Uganda guarantees all children of elementary school age a place in a government-funded school. But the system suffers from inadequate funding, poor infrastructure, and the luck of qualified teachers. I sat down with John Wanda a native of Uganda and Co- founder Arlington Academy of Hope outside Washington DC about helping out Children in rural Eastern Uganda reach their full potential.

Joyce Wanda co- founder of Arlington Academy of Hope says that when Arlington Academy of Hope opened in 2004, there was no reliable medical care clinic in the rural Bududa area. Joyce and her Husband John built two-community health centers in the village that provides free medical care, and immunizations. She says that their main goal is to improve the quality of life and transform poor villages into self-sustaining communities.
