Early Childhood Development
Clover runs an early childhood learning center and preschool for 40 children, ages 2-6, who live in the slums of Busega, Kampala, Uganda, at no cost to their families. We endeavor to ensure that every child meets age appropriate learning standards**, receives two nutritious meals daily, and is nurtured to their greatest physical and psychological well-being.

Continued Quality Education
Upon graduation from the Clover preschool, Clover is committed to the continued education of all its graduates by supporting them in private primary school in the community.

Community Empowerment
Clover’s Kisoboka Initiative is in its formative phase. Having been in the Busega community for three years, we are strongly connected to the families and constituencies, making now an ideal time to empower the families of Clover children with economic opportunity. 

Partnership Network
Clover recognizes the added value of partnerships and collaboration, in Uganda, in the U.S., and elsewhere, as critical to create a web of opportunity that will enable the children and families to rise out of poverty.
