school and orphanage
Excel Children's Care was started in 2010 by Mr Fortunate Kibombo. He saw the amount of young children living alone after losing one or both parents to HIV/AIDS, others had been abandoned, sometimes the parents were just too poverty stricken and could no longer care for the children. It was then he decided to rent a block of land in the village, gather all the children in need and build a home and school for them.
Initially, there were just 8, but now there are 32 girls and 29 boys living in his care aged 5-14 years old.
Counting the ones not living in the orphanage there are 120 Children at the orphanage school.
Children with HIV/AIDS are taken in and cared for, they are the innocent ones who contracted it from their mothers during birth. There is a matron to care for the young children in the orphanage, a cook to prepare meals and at school there are 9 Teachers. Children aged 3-6 years old are in "infant care" while primary school section ranges from P1- P7, aged 6-14.
.Fortunate Kibombo Bukenya and his wife Hellen run the school and orphanage, they are both teachers
