Education, Food, Shelter, Safety and Guidance for Ugandan Orphans
In the Ugandan foothills, a few miles from the city of Mitanya, there is an orphanage dedicated to saving children from poverty, illiteracy, forced marriages, child abuse, sexual abuse, and continual hunger and malnourishment.
Artists Against Hunger Orphanage is currently caring for fifty-seven orphaned girls and boys. The orphanage is also committed to helping twelve vulnerable families with monthly provisions of basic needs. Spiritual discipleship and mentorship are central and pivotal in all our activities. But along the way we also grow food, provide education and health care for our wonderful children.
About the Organization
Artists Against Hunger Uganda is a registered “not for profit organization” with the Uganda Registration Services Bureau with registration number 80020000667952. We are also a Community Based Organization with registration number BUS.DIV/120/2018..
Discipleship and an Attitude of Gratitude
We teach the children the word of God and provide opportunities for prayer, Bible study and fellowship. Coming to us from a situation of severe hardship, these children appreciate everything they receive. They often write sincere letters of thanks to donors on self-made illustrated cards. The children appreciate our donors and the power of God.
Uganda is a poor and beautiful country. A big proportion of Ugandan children have little chance to get an education. Without education, their lives are constrained by a recurring cycle of poverty and unemployment. Our goal is to educate vulnerable children and to equip and empower them as people and leaders. Tuition in our local school is $350 for each child. We can only achieve this large scale education drive through your generosity.
Work and Vocational Skills Development
Along with classroom time, the children work in the field during holidays and school breaks. The children help plant, harvest, prepare – and eventually eat and store – corn, beans, ground nuts, cassava and bananas. The young students operate a poultry farm and learn to take care of the birds. Extra food is distributed to nearby families.
When new structures are built on the orphanage property, the children learn about building and basic carpentry skills. The children also receive hands-on-training in baking, tailoring, weaving, hair-dressing and many other vocations that will help them in life. This work orientation makes these beautiful children rich with skills and potential and helps them cultivate their God-given talents and abilities.
The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and keep it. — Genesis 2:15
These Orphans Will Succeed!
Here are a few of our wonderful teenagers and the serious goals they have set for themselves. With your help, they will receive the education and training they need, and succeed in their life quests.
