Lindsay and Dalaine Walker



Lindsay and Dalaine Walker are two ordinary New Zealanders touched by seeing first hand a huge need - living conditions that people less fortunate than themselves must endure daily, a fragility of life that makes the sole purpose of living to simply survive, and something that doesn't take much fixing if you want it badly enough.

Lindsay and Dalaine are Global travellers, at grass routes level, having been to over 100 countries all at their own expense. For many years they have sponsored a total of 12 children in Colombia, Ecuador, Rwanda Brazil, and where this story begins with Harriet in Kakuuto, Uganda (where they saw the greatest need).

These children have had extraordinary life-changing transformations and have gone on to help people in their communities with two going on to University qualifications.

Lindsay and Dalaine have been humbled by the generosity of kind people. From those giving a pledge of a single dollar a day to provide the basics of life for an orphan at the Orphanage of Hope in Kabale (schooling, food, medicines and clothing); to those who want to help with a little money to provide an ENCAS interest free loan at Kakuuto to enable the purchase of bees, chickens, pigs, cattle; and to the super donors who have faithfully pledged greater amounts over an extended time.

Money goes a long way in Uganda. A single NZ dollar buys 2,100Ugandan Shillings, a single US dollar buys 3,400 Ugandan Shillings (Rates Jan 2023).

Every dollar makes a huge difference and every dollar is valued!

Cogan Tumwesigye

Cogan is a university graduate with a pastoral calling. He turned down a career to care for orphans, many of whom were found dumped in the road near his home. He has a love for children and has a huge heart. 


Both Cogan and his wife Medius have worked tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of every orphan at the Orphanage of Hope.


From just a few orphaned children in 2007 to the current number of 172. The photo gallery which includes  many before and after photos will attest to the amount of work and what has been achieved in the two years we have supported the orphanage.
