Side by side with the most vulnerable
We are ...
78 children living together in Bugiri District in Eastern Uganda. Our orphanage, Orphans of Uganda Children Center, was founded 2009 by the honorable Lady Fatimah Kagoya and was then continued by Isma Byarugaba in 2012, who himself was an orphan under the wings of Lady Kagoya. Since then we voluntarily help to empower orphans, street kids and the likes, regardless of their origin or religion.
How you can help
One time gift
Spend as much as you want whenever you want. All help is urgently needed and appreciated.
Donate a certain amount every month. Even if it's only a little. So we can calculate and plan better.
Sponsoring a child
Take over the school sponsorship of one child per year: 180 € for day school, 600 € for boarding school.
We compared to other orphanages
Compared to others, we are still at the very beginning. We don't have a secure place to stay, we have to fight hard every day to get enough to eat and in case of medical emergencies we have a big problem. State support does not exist either.
And this is not a scam we use to get your money, but the pure truth. See for yourself. We are willing to provide any evidence of our neediness that you may require. Contact us if you have any doubts.
We are 78 children. 50 are girls and 28 boys.
3 Volunteers are helping with cooking, watching after the children and dealing with paper work.
At the moment we have no permanent home to stay in. We pay rent for a temporary place to stay. See our house construction project!
