URF is a 501(c)(3) grassroots non-profit organization that empowers AIDS orphans, underprivileged youth and women to fight poverty in rural communities, through educational and sustainable development opportunities.

Our objectives include:

Our community programs include:

  • Hope Academy, a secondary school that provides a well-rounded quality education for orphans and other vulnerable children in rural villages.
  • Health: Medical Clinic, medical camps, village health workers, and health education in schools and communities
  • Women empowerment - crafts, entreprenuership and leadership training, microfinance
  • Youth empowerment: youth camps, peer counseling, self-help projects, community services, leadership skills
