Region: Kigoma, Wakiso districtOur Foundation is a private non-profit organization operating near Kampala, Uganda in East Africa. We aim at reaching marginalized children and youths such as orphans, school drop outs and members of very poor families. Today we bring together over 180 children from the outskirt villages of Kampala to provide them with the basics of life; education, shelter, food, clothing and health care. Our orphanage home is set up as a nurturing family environment, where our children are engaged in crop growing, gardening and cooking. You can make a tremendous difference in empowering the lives of under priviledged children and youths by employing your time, skills and talents as a volunteer. Our volunteer program includes teaching nursery & primary classes, assisting children with their daily tasks, administration support, fund raising, writing and other activities of your interest.
