Half of Uganda’s population is under 15 years old. Many children have lost either one or both parents to HIV/AIDS and for most, a quality education is not an option.
“GlobeMed student chapters can bring continuing year to year support, insight and planning where both communities – the university and our Ugandan community can grow together. ”
– Jean Semler, President of ChangeALife Uganda
About the Partnership
The mission of ChangeALife Uganda is to improve the lives of orphaned and disadvantaged children and their families in rural Migyera and in semi-urban Nabbingo, Uganda. Their goal is to alleviate poverty through a multi-sectorial approach including education, healthcare and micro-enterprise. The partnership between ChangeALife Uganda and GlobeMed at Rutgers started during the 2013-2014 academic year.
GlobeMed at Rutgers and ChangeALife Uganda will jointly design a project, mobilize funds, and begin implementation in the 2014-2015 academic year.
GlobeMed at Rutgers and ChangeALife Uganda’s impact will be assessed once a project is identified and implemented in the 2014-2015 academic year.
