Plus AAH’s impact on the local villages expands far beyond educational needs. For example, it partners with TOMS Shoes to supply new shoes to more than 45 primary schools in the Bududa, Manafwa, Sironko and Mbale districts. With help from the Women’s Microfinance Initiative, AAH has been instrumental in providing small business loans to women in the Bududa district. The organization has also successfully completed construction of a new borehole on AAH grounds to deliver clean water to the surrounding village.
According to Kim Cubine, president of CCAH, the entire CCAH family supports the Wandas’ endeavors with AAH, serving as advocates of the school and in many cases child sponsors.
“John and CCAH share the drive to make a difference in the world,” Cubine says, “and through his work with AAH and other organizations, John is helping his local and global community inch closer and closer to that goal.
“John’s hard work, dedication and passion are reflected in every project he touches,” she adds.
