AIDS ORPHANS EDUCATION TRUST ~ Uganda is an independent, indigenous non-governmental organization with the prime mandate of providing an education -- formal and/or vocational -- to desperately poor, neglected and forgotten orphans whose parents have died of AIDS. We also assist children with AIDS and widows that have lost their husbands to AIDS and most of them HIV+ themselves.
We are situated in Jinja town, which is in the eastern part of Uganda -- a two-hour drive from Entebbe International airport and one hour from Kampala, the capital city of Uganda.
Much of Uganda remains undeveloped. Its populace is ravaged by civil wars, hunger, and the AIDS epidemic that continues its deadly foray, especially in the villages AOET serves.
AIDS Orphans Education Trust ~ Uganda
seeks to bring hope and a future
to this generation of devastated children.
Currently, 77% of the overall population of Uganda are youth. Of that 77%, 30% are orphans, and 39% are either HIV+ or have already developed AIDS.
