In Uganda, 50,000 children are growing up in orphanages. Nearly all have family. Orphanages make orphans out of children.
Every day, families in crisis or poverty are forced to give up their children in the hope of a better life. Decades of research prove what we know in our hearts: a family is the best place for a child to grow up.
The Foundation helps reunite children with their own families where possible and finds loving, Ugandan adoptive or foster families where the child’s own family cannot be found or is unsafe. We help re-purpose orphanages into community hub centers that provide services that prevent family separation in the first place.
We also got some kids we care for and as for that reason we encourage volunteers to come through and give a hand to help a child's Life. Any support is highly appreciated, for example, Teaching, Gardening, and many others that can encourage these kids to have a better future.
On top of that we fight hard to manage the illiterate adults, both mothers, fathers and grands.
However feels this at heart, your a warmly invited to experience a life with us in return for accommodation, touring, learning different traditions, language and many others.
The purpose of the Foundation is to reduce the suffering of the vulnerable children, build their capacity through giving them skills empowerment, love, care, education and simple activities to do so that they become productive in the society in the near future.
