​​​​​​ASA Social Fund for Hidden Peoples 

Bright Kids Uganda USA


The mission of the ASA Social Fund for Hidden Peoples is to provide financial support for vulnerable and fragile children and adults who are impacted by extreme poverty, civil strife, abandonment, gender violence, disfigurement and physical disabilities.  These peoples are not served by the Uganda social support system. The ASA focus is on the basic human, health and educational needs of these hidden peoples  including, but not limited to: 

  • Parents of children who are disabled and have special needs
  • Women and children who are victims of gender violence
  • Children who are homeless, victims of conflict, HIV/AIDS and/or impacted by extreme poverty

As part of our mission, The ASA Social Fund for Hidden Peoples makes grants to qualified individuals and entities abroad.  We do not provide funding to parties prohibited by OFAC.  We maintain ongoing relationships with our beneficiaries, and we require information on the ways in which our funding is used, so that we can ensure that funded activities are in line with not only our own organizational goals and principles, but also IRS requirements that foreign programs are substantially similar to programs which would be 501(c)(3)-eligible if they took place in the U.S.
