In Bumwalukani, the students address visitors with the formal title of “teacher”. In reality, the teaching is mutual. It’s a cultural exchange. From the U.S., the wealth disparity appears to be a solid line dividing sponsors from Ugandan students, but, ultimately, we’re all students. We’re all human.
AAH works with local community members to promote the growth of self-sustaining and vibrant communities. We seek opportunities to develop and reinvest the skills and expertise of AAH graduates, staff, and community members back into the local communities. In addition to AAH’s positive impact on the local economy, we support local women’s microfinance programs. We plan to expand our community development to sustainable agriculture programs and to small and micro-enterprises.
