A new orphanage to take over from a small existing one in Uganda that exists with many limitations that prevents enough of the bare necessities for the children from reaching their needs
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.
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.
