Our Mission

Our mission is:

To teach skills for jobs to the poorest of poor young adults in Bududa through our
Bududa Vocational Academy

To assist impoverished orphans to cope with life through our
Children of Bududa

To provide small business loans to poor women through our
Women’s Microfinance Bududa

We pursue our mission through Bududa Learning Center, a non-governmental organization (NGO) founded by Barbara Wybar, a Canadian who came to the hills of Bududa as an unpaid volunteer in 2003. Bududa Learning Center is owned and operated by Bududa Canada Foundation, a non-profit corporation chartered in Canada and licensed to do business in Uganda. Our entire North American leadership is composed of unpaid volunteers, and Barbara continues unpaid as our dedicated executive director and inspiring leader.
