Background

There is a growing need to house, care for and educate the growing number of Ugandan orphaned children. Numbers are increasing as parents are dying with HIV Aids. Others are taken away by police from abusive situations, both sexually and physically and brought to this orphanage and others.

 

 

Love Uganda is a unifying force in a community that provides a solid base of community for all. The new orphanage will seek to provide a village setting that is self contained and self sustainable. Helping and providing for children also means trying to help parents and guardians too – if possible. No child should be sent back to parent or guardian who are known and proven to be abusive.

Our Plan

Phase 1:  Maintain present Love Uganda orphanage.

Phase 2: Construct 5 houses to accommodate 50 children. each house will contain 3 bedrooms for 10 children. kitchen, bathroom, lounge, storage area. dining room at one end of the house will be
accommodation for the keeper of the house which includes a bedroom, kitchen washroom.

 

Phase 3: To be constructed only after completion of phase 2. this will include the construction of a school and medical clinic centre.

Fundraising will concentrate on phases 1 and 2. Phase 3 will come once phase 1 and 2 are completed and paid for.

exciting news. we are getting ready to clear the land for the new orphanage. the children along with alex and Josephine were out there taking pictures as the land is today. hopefully the next pictures will see a change in scenery. all this is as a result of our donors. thank you from the bottom of our heart. next, we need to aim for the covering cost of the first building. $35,000 should provide a new home for 10 of our children. then we move on to the next 4 buildings. if you know anyone wanting to enhance the lives of these wonderful but in need children please ask them to step forward with what ever donation they can provide. I know that our children will say a thousand thank yous. in the mean time you may want to sponsor a child. we already have 2.  $50 per month brings that sponsorship to you. thanks on their behalf.

Christ's blessings
