 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Love Uganda Foundation registration number; 178298  was founded in 2012 as a community Based Non-Government Organization operating in Uganda kalagi Town-  Mukono, Gulu, Jinja, Kampala and Kabale district. It started as a family Foundation with 10 kids from remote families but later transformed into a National center with Children from all over the country. Some of the members who joined in to set up the center were friends. Today we are proud to be associated with such a big family.

The main purpose of the proposed project is to provide orphans and vulnerable children with adequate accommodation and living conditions. As a childcare/Orphanage, we do provide a home for our children after being approved by the government authority basing on the child’s status or condition.  He or she is initiated in our family setting from where they find a sense of belonging with our mother who happens to be a widow able to take care of the child together with other siblings in a home. We do emphasize on our children being molded and nurtured under a family institute as this is an avenue for which right and proper morals of life are instilled.

Currently, we are renting one big homestead which is able to accommodate 30 children, with loving mothers providing good care to the children. Due to the expansion of our vision and the need to increase the numbers of orphans in our care, we have secured land for this project and embarked on raising funds towards this project  in Kalagi Town- Mukono District, access to enough space is a basic requirement of a childcare center. This purpose will be achieved through mobilization of financial resources from local entrepreneurs, global donors, construction of new children’s home. The project is scheduled to start in January 2017 and completed by the end of September 2018.

The project plan is on ground but there is lack of fund and other requirements, like building materials and others needed urgently. We hope if the good Samaritans and donors out there can consider our appeal. We need this assistance urgently in the renovation and construction of the building of our center.

 

  1. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

Love Uganda Foundation, Registration number; 178298 was founded in 2012 as a community Based Non-Government Organization operating in kalagi Town-  Mukono, Gulu, Jinja, Kampala and Kabale district of Uganda. It started as a family Foundation with 10 kids from remote families but later transformed into a National center with Children from all over the country. Some of the Members who joined in to set up the center were friends. Today we are proud to be associated with such a big family. Love Uganda Foundation is able to provide a small orphanage project that will provide children with a safe and stable home, education,  food, medical care, Godly principles and support throughout their childhood.  We believe that when we empower our children or our society at large, we avail a great platform for great African leaders who shall someday empower Africa’s Next Generation and the whole world at large.

In Mukono district like any other areas of the country, there is a growing number of Orphaned and homeless children as a result of HIV/AIDS. In addition to this, these children are often abandoned with no way of tracing their family members. Many of these children live in communities where there are widespread misconceptions about the causes of HIV/AIDS. Over the past few years, the number of orphans and vulnerable children living in Uganda has been escalating at an alarming rate. In 2004, the number of orphans was estimated to be 1.8 million and by 2009 that number had grown to nearly 2.6 million. Over one million of those children have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS-related complications and the following are their problems.

After their parents passing on as a result of HIV/AIDS-related complications, they are shunned by neighbors and community members in fear of contracting the disease. Orphans find themselves isolated within their communities, surrounded by those who are unwilling or unable to reach out to them. Many of these children are deprived of their basic needs due to high levels of poverty. Nearly half of the population lives below poverty line, out of which 19% are children. Uganda’s rural areas in particular struggle with a very high poverty rate.

Poverty breeds desperation and leads people to many drastic choices. Children get killed, trafficked or sold as slave labor. Love Uganda Foundation Childcare/Orphanage addresses such issues. Some children get rejected by their families for small body deformities and treatable medical conditions. Orphaned and abandoned children stay hungry, malnourished, and often diseased. Because every child is precious to God, we cannot sit back and watch these children suffer alone yet we can do something to restore their priceless lives and provide them with hope for the future. This we have managed to achieve through our Childcare/Orphanage ministry under our internal sector within the foundation.
