Uganda Empowers (UE) is an HIV/AIDS and children development community-based nonprofit organization working in remote villages in Uganda – Lwengo District.  UE fights the spread of HIV/AIDs through direct counseling and education, providing referrals and access to essential medicines, and by reducing the stigma of HIV/AIDs through the use of performing arts.

For the past two years, UE has rented a single office in the Mbiriizi Town Council.  Recently, the organization has been presented with an opportunity purchase a four-room office and make a permanent home on the property. With support from the Kaakas’ family, the organization was able to raise $2000 USD, but $2000 more is needed to own the land.

Owning the land would enable Uganda Empowers to apply for local grants that require land ownership. In addition to enabling UE to apply for grants, more space means more room for HIV/AIDs counseling; storage for costumes, drums, and educational materials; and other projects that help UE to remain self-sustaining, such as its craft shop, computer training, and stationary services.

If Uganda Empowers is unable to raise the additional $2000,  the initial payment will be converted to two years rent.
