  • Description

    Description

    We are a community based organization in Uganda that started in 2011 with the vision to improve and restore hope to orphans, vulnerable children and young people. This was after the 2010 massive deadly landslides that happened in Bududa district of eastern Uganda.The tragedy claimed over 200 lives, property and live stock due to the above ,many children and young people were left homeless, orphaned and hopeless.

    Our organization therefore was started to restore hope to the hurting.
    We are located in the town centre of the district 1 hr drive from Mbale city and 4hrs from Kampala city.
    We have through the years supported over 80 children and young people especially through education,and currently we have only 22 kids under our care.The children are supported through their house holds and only come together on Saturday.
