Dental Hygiene with
Benco Family Foundation
Part of Benco Family Foundation’s mission is to improve the dental health and quality of life around the world. RUN partnered with Benco to provide every child with a toothbrush and toothpaste to last a year. Thanks to our combined efforts, we are now raising awareness of preventative measures in dental hygiene within the community of Nankoma Village. Enjoy the smiles of our children and staff with us!

Clean Water & Self-Sufficiency
RUN has a vision of allowing most of our operations to run autonomously in Uganda by 2020. Furthermore, though our mission is to provide for our children, we are also mindful of the social impact we can bring to Nankoma and Bugiri District. To achieve both these goals, we partnered with SPOUTS, a student founded and Harvard Innovation Lab’s award-winning enterprise, to provide affordable clean water options in the neighborhood.
By targeting a population that has the need, purchasing power, and mutual trust with our staff, we are making clean water accessible by raising awareness of its importance, sales, and payment plans, while generating a small profit that will take us closer to self-sufficiency in Uganda.

Christmas in Uganda
On December 25th of 2017, four of our Korean staff members celebrated Christmas with our staff and children in Nankoma. Along with dances, show and tell, painting exercises, readings, and debate, we played hard and studied hard with the children. RUN staff members were also invited to a social event hosted by a Member of Parliament, had numerous meetings with district and community-level officials, and met with local business owners to discuss ways of building trust, cooperating, and making a real difference in the community.
