Transforming Lives. Inspiring Change.

Current Projects

Make My Name Count works in two areas of Uganda: Kakuuto in the South and Kabale in the West. Learn about two of our current projects below. 

KAKUUTO Bakehouse


The town of Kakuuto in South-West Uganda is one of the most impoverished areas in the world. In 2022, 20% of female and 14% of male youth were unemployed. Make My Name Count successfully built a bakehouse in 2016, employing 18 staff. This micro-enterprise is only the beginning of our mission to reduce unemployment in the local community.

Orphanage of Hope


The Orphanage of Hope is home to 172 children on the outskirts of Kabale in South Western Uganda. In 2018, Make My Name Count partnered with the local community to develop the welfare of the children at this orphanage. Child sponsorship has provided many children with clothing, bedding and medication; additionally, the 8-hectare property stands to grow nutritious food for the Orphanage of Hope community.
