Help fund a Group House for orphans

£3,082 of £4,873 goal

Raised by 15 people in 9 months
Urgent funds are needed to build a group house for 10 orphans and 2 care takers in one of the poorest areas of Uganda. Two thirds of the project costs have already been offered. The building plans and construction team are ready. With your help we can raise the final third of the required funding and make a huge difference to the children's quality of life.

Background
Starlight Family is a charity based in Kiboga, Uganda that provides education and care to the most vulnerable children and adults. Since our visit to them in 2014 we have continued to support their wonderful work. Despite having limited resources Starlight's directors, volunteers and supporters have managed to improve the lives of the children and adults in the area in many ways over the last seven years. Discover more about Starlight Family on their website or on their FaceBook page

Now there is an important opportunity to make a huge difference to the orphans who are being supported and cared for by Starlight Family.

The Project
Unfortunately the current accommodation for 10 of the children under the care of Starlight Family is inadequate in many ways and poses a risk to their health.
A recent visit to Starlight by long-time supporter David P. Armrein has led to German architect Volker Goebel designing suitable budget accommodation for the children and their caretakers and generously offering to oversee the project.

Making a Difference
We can all help to improve the lives of these and future children.To take advantage of the architects availability and sponsorship already offered the balance needs to be raised as soon as possible. Any contributions are gratefully received - thank you.
