We’re working hard to bring smiles to the faces of our communities in Uganda: all the people you see here are happy because people like you helped us to help them.
We’ve brought water, and a community centre to the deprived village of Kamengo Ffunvu; we continue to support them with programmes encompassing healthcare & education, and send regular donations of clothing and the basics of life.
We’ve put smiles on the faces of hundreds of children through our outreach work in the slums of Kampala; and our support of children’s homes & projects in the community: we’ve sponsored dozens of children through education and residential care. Now, we need your help to go one stage further.
People will often forget what you said, or what you did - but they’ll never forget how you made them feel. The children forced to live on the streets of Kampala through no fault of their own, some as young as five years old, are tired, hungry, abused and terrified. We want them to feel safe - permanently safe - and to do that, we need to build.
We want to build our own home to make them secure in the knowledge they’re protected from the dangers of living outside on their own forever; a place which makes sure they never feel hungry or afraid; and a place which will help them overcome their problems, give them the opportunity to restart their lives and set them on a path to success in their future.
We need your help to achieve our dream - and there are many ways you can do this:
