Housing and School for Mbarara Childrens Orphanage

Beinomugisha Keneth the founder and director of Mbarara Children’s Orphanage Centre in Uganda Africa started this Orphanage home in 2014 with 8 orphaned kids who had lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. They are now looking after 43 orphaned children. Beinomugisha knows how hard it is for children to lose their parents because his Father died when he was 10 and his Mother died the same year. He was looked after by family for about a year but during that time he was mistreated and then he was forced onto the streets of Mbarara by his family.  He is thankful that an elderly man took him to his home and cared for him and Beinomugisha helped him with domestic work.  After the hardships in his life, he gave his life to Jesus.  He is now honouring this by caring for orphans. 
Currently, they are trying to raise funds to build a permanent home for the orphans to live in and their aim is also to build a school.  At present, the children have to travel some distance to reach their schools and it is important that they receive a good education which will then allow them to be independent.  This fundraising is to help pay for bricks, sand, cement and labour for the building projects and a big water tank for storing rain water. 
They also have the day to day running costs of the orphanage such as electricity, food and clothing to consider.  I know that any amount that can be given will mean such a lot to Beinomugisha and the children and will also mean a lot to me.  The children have been left in this situation through no fault of their own and if I can help just a little bit with getting this information to more people then it will make me very happy and grateful.
