The Arlington Academy of Hope is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization built on a unique partnership between the local Ugandan community and many everyday Americans. In the U.S., AAH is primarily volunteer driven with a Board of Directors, an Advisory Council, an Executive Director and a growing community of dedicated volunteers and caring supporters. In Uganda, our organization includes senior staff, teachers, school staff and clinic personnel.
AAH invites you to learn about What We Do and join this effort. Together we can reach many more Ugandan children in need of a good, all-around education and basic healthcare.
