Forever Home for 118 Children in Uganda

$5,792 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 73 months

Hello everyone!  This is an extension of our fundraising efforts for our long term goal for God's Grace Orphanage.  This page is available to you to make donations to help us reach our ten thousand dollar goal to buy a forever home for 118 children and their caretakers in Uganda.

Currently living on a donated piece of land, these 118 children and their four caretakers live in a small three bedroom bungalow in a district called Kyebando, found in Kampala, Uganda.  Each of the two bedrooms sleeps about 45 of the children, separated by gender.  They also function as the classrooms during the day.  Right now, the home does not have a functional kitchen or any form of toilet.

By buying a new piece of land we will have room for our sustainable projects, a safe living space for all of the children, room to play, and eventually room to build a school that is separate from the children's home.  

For more information, don't hesitate to contact me.  Or you can read back on stories from my travel blog in Uganda: 

Thank you in advance for your contribution, it is amazing what a community can accomplish when we all come together!  Please note, all of our sustainable projects that are currently at the orphanage (a lush garden, a mushroom farming project, sewing and beadwork training) was ALL made possible because of donors like you!

From the children, myself, the 40 days... over 40 smiles team and all of our fundraiser coordinators... THANK YOU!
