Children of Uganda

Cares for AIDS orphans and other disadvantaged children in Uganda with the goal of helping them become healthy and productive members of society.

There is an orphan crisis in Uganda. The country is home to nearly 2.4 million children under the age of 15 who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS — the most of any country in the world. Extended families and orphanages face an enormous financial barrier to educating these children, due to a lack of government-subsidized education.

children-of-uganda-photo1For more than a decade, Children of Uganda has been helping to address this problem with local staff and organizations in Uganda by providing education and support to hundreds of AIDS-related orphans and other vulnerable children, while at the same time promoting global awareness of the effects of HIV/AIDS.

We support two children’s homes in Uganda, one in the Rakai district and one in the Mukono district. Each home has an attached primary school for children ages 5 to 13. Older children in our program also receive high school education and vocational training. We also support children with disabilities at our Philip’s House facility, on the grounds of our home in the Mukono district.

Our vision is that all children in Uganda receive an education to become healthy, productive members of their community who assume leadership roles and positively affect Ugandan society. And we hope to help the world understand the devastating effects of HIV/AIDS on children in developing nations.
