It's a JOY to help these kids!

Ever wonder how you could directly change lives in Africa? Do you have to be a Jimmy Carter or a Bill gates in order to make a huge difference in the life of a village?  Of course not.  YOU can change someone's future from despair to hope and joy ... and you can do it today.

The familiar question is: How can you know that your donations are directly reaching the people who need help? Well, now YOU HAVE A WAY.

We are the essence of DIRECT ACTION at the GRASSROOTS LEVEL.  It's simple and it works!
How? We travel personally to Uganda and EVERY DOLLAR we receive for the children goes directly to the our projects in a the village community. I see that every penny is used for food, clothing or education. You can even tell me how you would like your gift used, and I will send you photos of the families who have benefited from it. We have a safe way to get your funds to Uganda and you will receive PHOTOS of what your donation has accomplished.
You may also choose which project you would like to support.  We thrive on DIRECT ACTION.
For example: With us, if you buy a cow, you get a picture of that cow two weeks later, and receipts, if you need them.

On every one of our trips to Uganda, we bring not just our concern, supplies and expertise to the community but lots of hugs and love to the kids.  Many items of clothing, school, art and medical supplies are being collected by the Team and we will each be hand-carrying two huge suitcases of supplies and gifts for the children.
When we return, we'll be sending out an email newsletter with photos of our experiences in Uganda.

We welcome any child sponsorship or donations for the children!

                                                                SPONSORING A CHILD
You might want to talk with us about sponsoring a child who has been rescued from life on the streets, or perhaps sponsoring one of our dedicated senior students who has declared their hopes of going to University and after graduation, returning to help their community. We have several who are ready, just awaiting a sponsor. Sponsorship of a young child is only $35. per month. (Older students are a bit more, depending on the school in which we enroll them.)

In our first year, in 2010, we
completed our first project to bring clean water to Hope Home!
Hope Home owns its own beautiful 10 acre parcel of land where the children live and study. When the children lost their access to the community well, we swung into action.
Three months later, Hope Home had their own well! This was accomplished with the help of people like YOU!.. and with a matching gift from the Children's Hunger Relief Fund.
(You can even come to Uganda to visit, if you like, and see the completion of the well. Check our volunteering page.)
Our ONLY website now is this one: HelpUgandaKids.org

There are two million children in Uganda who have lost their parents due to AIDS or civil war.
Many of these kids have known starvation and abuse in the streets of the villages in the still-volatile regions of Uganda.
Our projects shelter thirty-five street children and reach out to 100 more in the  surrounding villages. I've seen how much these children want to learn! They just soak up the education given to them here, and will eventually take their exams and go on to higher education. (Quite obviously, this is a very different future than they would have had in a dangerous life on the street.) Many want to return to help their communities. These children are a vital part of Uganda's future. EDUCATION IS NOT FREE IN UGANDA! (These orphans have no way to go to school unless they have school fees, or can find a place in a school such as ours.) Want to help us make a real difference... and change lives? A donation of ANY amount can  feed a hungry kid... or with education...change the future of a child.

What amazes me about these children is how joyful and resilient they are.
Most of these kids have watched both their parents die. They have known hunger...  and so much sorrow. But given a little food, clothing, friends and a chance to go to school, they bloom like thirsty flowers. Our village schools ring with their laughter. When we go there to volunteer, they surround us so much joy and affection that we come home with full hearts...  and the feeling that we've gotten back so much more than we gave.
(Want to go on our next trip?)

Have an Armchair Travel Adventure and Make a Difference!
The joy of being a savior in these kid's lives also extends to those who only go there with me in spirit. For them, they find it exhilarating to participate in an African armchair travel adventure! I take your letters and donations, and deliver 100% of them directly to the children. The kids will write letters back to you.
Join us... and soak up a little joy! 

Our Orphans in Uganda

Taking your contributions personally to our projects in Uganda, you and I have just accomplished a lot of little miracles. The important thing is that we have ACTUALLY MADE A DIRECT DIFFERENCE in the lives of those who were desperate. None of your donations went to office rent or to salaries of the big NGOs. 100% of your donations reached the children...and widows with no means of support! We've harnessed the power of personal concern and grassroots action! And together, you and I have directly saved lives and changed futures.

Some of the things we have done with your help: 

We have -
  1. sent in big water tanker trucks to many thirsty villages during the long drought.
  2. delivered truckloads of maize meal to villages where the people were close to starvation.
  3. purchased mosquito bed nets.. and hundreds of shoes and sandals for little bare feet.  
  4. helped pay teacher's salaries for the village schools.
  5. purchased a piece of farm land for each of our three projects. The harvests now save many lives.
  6. managed to get dozens of street kids off the street and into safe situations.
  7. started two women's empowerment groups at two separate projects.
  8. started a milk goat project with 30 goats for 30 impoverished women. The women's co-of there now has a herd of over 100 goats!
  9. built three village schools
  10. Brought clean water to three villages where before, there was only polluted, disease-causing water.
Let's keep it going!!
