  • Description

    Description

    We are non-government organization that care for orphans and abandoned children who are left to their grandmothers’ due to failure of early mothers and fathers to take care of them and lack support because of problems related to their family background in the developing world. We started in the year 2012 and registered legally as an NGO in 2018 work in Katwaka Village, Mutoto Parish, Nambale Sub-County, Mbale-Uganda, East Africa. Together, we seek to provide hopeful, productive futures to the abandoned children of the world.
    We are an organization that “gives families to the children of the world” by developing family-style in the entire communities. Each kid is nursed in form of mother and father so that they grow up knowing there is a father and a mother in the world. We care for nearly 102 children in our community ever since we started thus over 86 homes.
    Many children service providers have not done a lot in terms of advocacy, coordination and resource mobilization for children in our community, less concentration and help has been trickled down to children and their families. Therefore, we are in need of people who can help in finding resolutions on how this can be put right for a better future of these vulnerable kids in our locality.
