Bogesunds House

Bogesunds House is named after Bogesundsskolan (Bogesunds school).  Many students and staff from the school donated funds to purchase the house.  The house is an information and resource center for HIV/AIDS.

50 orphans receive help through the center.  The children do not live in the house but live with a caregiver.

The house functions as a central gathering place for both the children and their caregivers.  Consultation and accommodation is also given here, along with literature, films, etc about HIV/AIDS.

Three people are employed by the project:  A director, a housekeeper, and a guard.  The director, Lydia Wughunga, is herself an orphan and is taking care of her little sister.

There is also a preschool with more than 40 children and two teachers at Bogesunds House.

The work is run by the Lutheran church in Voi.  It is coordinated in Ulricehamn through a working group, which is responsible to EFS and the Swedish Church.
