Proceeds from the Brighter Futures Charity Bike Rally and Banquet will provide safe shelter and job training to homeless teenage girls and women in northern Uganda.
Proceeds will help CAPAIDS-Uganda to operate the Home of Hope in Boro Boro, Northern Uganda – a safe shelter and centre for HIV education, support and livelihoods training for AIDS-orphaned teenage girls and young women.
In the Northern Uganda city of Lira, orphaned or homeless young women are vulnerable to violence and sexual exploitation. With proceeds from the 2016 Brighter Futures Bike Rally and banquet, we helped CAPAIDS expand the Home of Hope from a training centre to a safe shelter for young women who want to escape the streets and start a new life. With funds raised by the 2017 Bike Rally and Banquet, CAPAIDS will accept its first group of residents and help them transition to safe employment and secure housing.
