Orphanage in Entebbe/ Uganda

Orphanage in Entebbe/ Uganda

In the north-west of Entebbe in Bulwany, there is farmland used to grow staple foods for the orphanage and two cattle are kept.

HIFA has financed the construction of a well in this area, whereby the water is also available to the farmers for a small contribution.

What is the mission of the orphanages?

John Sebulime: “We look after abandoned and neglected children who are referred to us by the police or probation offices. Some children come from precarious family situations based on poverty and the resulting criminality. In the orphanages at all locations, the children receive education, psychosocial support, medical care, two meals a day – meals are brought in or cooked by the children themselves – and a place to sleep. As soon as a child is accepted, a search is made for the family and, if successful, the child is reunited with the family.I am a teacher by profession, I teach visual arts at Nsangi Secondary School and I like to help out at the orphanage from time to time.We are convinced that every child needs a family.”

Where are the orphanages located?

There are several locations:
Pubah/Nkumba Central: 13 of the youngest children are accommodated here, 9 staff are employed.
Dana Campus in Bukandekande/ Kitala: 28 of the older children who go to school are accommodated here, 11 members of staff are employed.

Older children can receive vocational training, mostly in manual trades, at the Wakiso (Vocational Centre Entebbe), which works closely with the orphanage.
