Help build a home for orphans in Mityana Uganda!

Will you help us build a home and achieve self sufficiency?
Every donation makes a difference!

My name is Kizza Lawrence. My country, Uganda, is beautiful, lush and green— but also full of poverty and suffering. My life changed the day I witnessed the casual death of a homeless child. I vowed to do my best to prevent such a tragedy from happening in front of me ever again.

I founded Hope for Mityana Street Children and Orphans. We are an official NGO that not only takes in abandoned children, but provides food, clothing, medicine and access to education for impoverished families in Mityana, Uganda. We also support people impacted by AIDS, who can end up outcast and isolated. I have been joined by a dedicated staff of incredible volunteers who donate their time and salaries to feeding, clothing, and protecting the most vulnerable in our community.

We currently support over 200 local children and families. We welcome you to read about our struggles and successes at: Hope For Mityana Street Children and Orphans. Or follow us on Instagram at: @hopeforstreetchildandorphans and Twitter at: @ForMityana

After years of effort, we have finally managed to purchase our own plot of land. This will allow us to become self sufficient. We will be able to raise and grow our own food. And the money we once spent on rent can go toward meeting the basic needs of the children.

We must now raise a total of $10,000 to build an orphanage and community center on our land. One person can make a difference, but it takes a village to create true change!

Please consider a donation of $10, $25, or more to help make our dream real!

Every little bit helps. 100% of the money donated will go directly toward the construction of our new home and caring for the essential needs of the children who live with us.

God bless, and thank you!
Kizza Lawrence
