Working to give children their

best chance in life.

Our 5th Annual 5k is Happening Virtually Sept. 27!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, and the safety of our runners and volunteers, our 5k will be a virtual event this year!

Grab your capes and masks and join us!

Runners will still be sent goody bags and have opportunities for prizes and medals.

Proceeds from the event go directly to support the kids in our orphanage. #ChristalisHeroes

For more information please visit our 5k page.

Be a hero to our children, run/walk in our Virtual 5k!

About Us

Since 2005 we have been providing love, shelter, education, and support to children who are victims of various injustices in southwestern Uganda.

We support our children from primary school through University. It is our vision that all of the children in our programs will become self-sufficient and in turn help the community around them.

 "I continue to believe that if children are given the necessary tools to succeed, they will succeed beyond their wildest dreams."

- David Vitter

Our Home Finally Has a Wall!

After 4 long years of waiting for the funds to build a wall around our home, our prayers have been answered! Thank you to Pastor Weigley, the Columbia Union Conference, our manager Nusura, and our local construction staff for helping us complete this project! Our children can  now enjoy the security of a finished wall around our home!

Meet Nusura!

After growing up in the Christalis Home in Uganda, Nusura went on to become the home manager. Nusura works around the clock to ensure all the children are fed, cared for, and loved, while also keeping the Christalis Home running smoothly. We are so thankful to have Nusura on our team!
