Lukaya is a town of about 24,000 people located on a major truck route. Although the prevalence of HIV infection in Uganda as a whole has dropped to about 7%, in Lukaya it is much higher. Because of this, there is a very high population of orphaned and vulnerable children. There are many children who lack the opportunity to attend school. These children start work very young--fetching firewood, carrying heavy jerry cans of water, hawking goods on the street. Children who are lucky enough to attend school usually go to overcrowded and undersupplied government schools, where there may be as many as 100 to 150 children in a first-grade class. Real Partners Uganda has established a school where class sizes are limited and children get the individual attention that they so desperately need.
