We are a non governmental organization situated in Fort Portal, Uganda. The aim of Youth Encouragement Services is to improve the welfare of orphaned and vulnerable youth
including children born HIV-positive. Since 1996 we have been helping those who have no one left to care for them. We strive for sustainabilityand are currently employing over 20 staff.
We pursue our goals through a variety of projects. Sustainability can be achievedby investing in the education of those who can not afford to go to
school. While our scholarship program currently sponsors 280 orphans and vulnerable children, we also have a home for 30 HIV-positive children and provide them the opportunity to live a secure,
fulfilling and productive life in a loving environment.
