"Because we are all in this together to rock the world"
- Irene Baseke, 18 years old
Life Charity Focus is currently administered by volunteers in New South Wales and operated by staff in Budaka Uganda. All staff in Uganda are fully funded through donations, fundraisers and fee paying students at our school.
We would not be where we are without our team. We all work together to make things run smoothly, and smooth things out when we cross bumps along the way. The Australian team are in Uganda at least once a year, and if it was possible they would be there full-time. Our family nature, love for the community, and love for each child and family is what bonds us strongly together every day.
