House of Hope Uganda Inc.
Orphanage, School, Clean Water
The House of Hope Uganda Inc was set up by Australian, Wendy Pollock. In 2010 she visited the House of Hope orphanage in Uganda as a volunteer aid worker. She found a facility which had 140 orphans from HIV/ aids affected families, and a primary school which catered for 250 children from nearby villages. The orphanage and school did not have any electricity or an adequate water supply. The remote area where the orphanage is located comprises a number of small villages where people live at subsistence levels. She immediately began, like myself, to raise funds and support from 'back home'. Her efforts saw new permanent classrooms built, and further education programs were developed so adolescents leave school with a secondary school certificate to enable them to gain employment. They also work closely with Medical aid for critically ill children. If you would like to find out more or contribute please see below - Anne xx
House of Hope Uganda inc is an Australian charity raising funds for assistance to our projects in Uganda
We are an Australian registered association and charity raising funds to assist 2 projects in rural Uganda.
Our goals are to Educate children, bring water to rural communities thus making the communities more sustainable and to improve disabled children’s quality of life with better medical treatments.
House of Hope orphanage and Globalize Action Junior School.
House of Hope orphanage is home to 50 children. Many more children from this program live with a caretaker in nearby villages. Globalize Action Junior School is educating 320 children from the orphanage and the surrounding villages. The children are aged 3 to 17. Many children will walk 2 hours to school.
We feel that education will empower these students to create a better future for themselves and their families.
Currently we are funding 23 students to have secondary education and realize their goals and gain skills for their future. This would not be possible without our funding.
We are also funding 2 severely disabled students to have primary education at a special needs school in Tororo. Due to the challenges these children are facing, education could be their only hope for achieving their dreams.
Edyac Medical program (Empowering Disadvantaged Youth and Children).
We are working in Tororo in eastern Uganda with a registered organization EDYAC, helping care for extremely needy children with dire medical conditions. Many of these children were born with Hydrocephalus, Spina Bifida and Cerebral Palsy and need extra care and treatments.
