Born: October 2004
Oliva is a girl from Northern Uganda, an area devastated by civil war and the LRA. Oliva’s father abandoned the family and provides no support. Oliva’s mother works hard doing small scale gardening and brick laying but it is not enough to provide for the children to attend school.
Now attending Hope School at Calo Me Lare “Village of Redemption” Oliva is safe, has nutritious meals, attends school, has access to medical attention and receives spiritual/character mentorship.
Oliva is excited to be attending school and hopes to become a nurse so she can help others in need.

Northern Uganda has suffered through 25 years of war due to the insurgency of Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army. The unrest has destabilized the region for decades prohibiting it from developing an infrastructure to support its people. As a result of this war, and the ongoing epidemic of AIDS and malaria, there is estimated to be over 3 million orphans in Uganda. Project Hope Worldwide’s work in this region has involved establishing an orphanage, schools, a medical clinic, vocational training programs, and local churches to support the people.
