Children, adults and staff from
Ebenezer Kisoboka children's home
The ‘Kisoboka’ Project is a local expansion of all that Richard Field has developed over the past six years in the Ebenezer Kisoboka Children’s Home. It can be viewed as several interdependent mini-projects.
Richard Field is a great friend of the Ebenezer Kisoboka Children’s Home; although based in the UK for much of the year, he is a regular visitor to Uganda and has been a driving force in improving life at the home. Four acres of land, already purchased by Richard, will be the focal point of a scheme in which:
several small houses will be built to accommodate staff
a basic clinic, to be badged the Kula Clinic Gonve, will be built as an annexe and partner of the private Herona Hospital in Kisoga. It will also serve as a rehabilitation centre for children post-trauma
a local primary school will be used to build up better education and then proceed to secondary level
the EK home will continue to be improved but limited to children who have no parents and are destitute
a parallel scheme will be organised so that most of the children can remain at home (often with a grandparent) with some support for their schooling and IMET2000 field staff running school courses in healthcare awareness (for example personal hygiene, malaria, nutrition, parasites, sexual health)
an administrative office will be built on the Gonve plot of land to run the whole scheme.
