Working to give children their

best chance in life.

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.

Help a child succeed today!

Day in the Life of a Volunteer

"My first memory after getting off the plane was how incredibly hot I was. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, so heat isn’t something I’m very used to...when I stepped off that plane and felt the heat I thought, Uh oh, this is going to be fun."
