I had the pleasure to work with BOSCO Uganda in Gulu for 11/2 year as an advisor sent by the Austrian Development Cooperation. As a small local organization with dedicated staff they really understand the people’s needs, not to treat them as beneficiaries but as partners and inspire them to master their own life. The involvement of the whole community is the key to BOSCO Uganda’s success. Real change and development has to come from within and this is what BOSCO is doing.
A fantastic organization with practical and efficient solutions to the problems that have plagued Northern Uganda and much of the entire continent of Africa for ions. The official I met with in Northern Uganda asked for peace, education, and opportunity. BOSCO has found a way to respond to all three. BOSCO has surpassed expectations given that they are operating on such a modest budget. This organization isn't just feeding the people in need. It's teaching them how to fish.
