Building African Communities Opportunities “BACO”, is a foundation that was born in 2016 and started its full operation in 2019, it is found in kyangwali refugee settlement kikuube district in Uganda. This was found specifically to address challenges in the camp such as poverty, unwanted teenage pregnancies , early marriages and many more to mention but a few. Due to the experience and skills that the youth had acquired, they believed for example if a girl child can stay long in school while studying, will reduce on early marriages, hence an idea to start school under the foundation and furthermore, to support those that were already affected. The foundation decided to come up with the idea of tailoring project where mostly single mothers can acquire tailoring skills so as to be able to support their families.
The foundation has a total of 601 people that it is supporting of which 378 are girls, and 223 are boys pursuing primary education and 85 single mothers doing tailoring. The foundation believes it can do more than that in transforming many people’s lives if given support basically financial support.
However, currently the BACO foundation gets its support from individual contributions, parents also bring food stuffs to support on feeding pupils, foundation projects like tailoring project, Agriculture among others
