Orphanage of Hope
Prior to 2018 , Cogan Tumwesigye was almost singlehanded running a house that cared for orphans, many had been left to die or fend for themselves on roads and ditches nearby. It became obvious that with only minimal support from a small handful of people worldwide, much had to change.
That is where MMNC came in. In August 2018, the orphanage was renamed (The Orphanage of Hope) and moved a new site with better accommodation and a potential to expand.
The first concern was to to keep all 172 children alive: feed them, clothe them, provide schooling and medicine.
A safari company was also formed and government registered to operated complete with a new sign written Safari Vehicle and is ready to operate (post Covid).
A new Kitchen for the orphanage and a purpose built school are planned to start early in the new year once donations have been received.
Sponsoring a child at a $1/day ensures that children have the basics of life: nutricious food, bedding (and a place to call their own), clothing, schooling and medication.
In total we have 173 children in our care.....
We currently have 23 orphans still waiting to be sponsored - PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ?? You will receive a childs picture and short bio of your child.
Just two children left to sponsor!
The current kitchen set-up is very unsafe and inadequate to cook for 180 people. With your donation, we can change this.
Project cost: $2000
Hope Education Centre
Currently the children have school where they sleep. We are in the process of building a 7-classroom school which will also have 2 craft training rooms and an office. The land has been purchased and building blocks made.
