Our heart project is the support of the Afrinena Orphanage. We want to offer about 80 orphans and poor children a future beyond survival.
Our initial help was securing basic services:
supplying the building with water, electricity and cooking facilities
providing children with food and toiletries
and purchasing beds, mattresses and mosquito nets
Personal commitment and helpfulness
Frank Mwesigwa and his wife Agnes are the dedicated forces behind the Afrinena Orphanage. Out of the need to give orphans a home, Frank has founded the Afrinena Orphanage and takes care of the children with great dedication and love. The orphanage is now a renowned institution in the slums of Kampala. It is well known as a point of contact where help in the context of modest possibilities is gladly given. Frank and Agnes, who are both teachers, especially care about the education of their pupils. From their modest income, they can offer nothing to the children. They and the children are therefore especially dependent on our financial help.
Our sponsorships cause the children’s eyes to light up again
We actively support Frank through arranging child and project sponsorships to provide the children with a permanent home, food and, increasingly, a better quality of life. In addition, school attendance, and thus the assumption of school costs, is an essential part of the support covered by sponsorships. School education is the first step towards a self-determined future and the opportunity to escape the bitter poverty. We gave these children hope and the difference was immediately visible. Children and adolescents became more self-confident and started to shape their own life. The pronounced hunger bellies began to disappear.
Increase the quality of life
Since the founding of the association in October 2017, we have been able to ensure the basic food supply for all orphans. In the first few months, this could be done mainly through our own financial means and donations from friends and acquaintances.
Since then, we have been able to increase the quality of life of children modestly, but still significantly, by acquiring the most necessary furnishings, hygiene products and, above all, medical care. We are in constant contact with the orphanage manager Frank Mwesigwa and take inventory and photos of the children on site.
Milestones of help
Building on our previous help in securing basic services, we are working to further improve living conditions. A new house with more space, better sanitary facilities and healthy living conditions was rented.
Our next big goal is to substantially improve the living and training situation of the children through the purchase of land, construction of a new home for the orphans, daycare for the needy children of the slums, and construction of a school building.
Education is the only chance for children to escape poverty and school attendance is often the only chance for
a warm meal.
We have already succeeded in creating better living conditions for the orphans by renting a new house!
The next step is to substantially improve the living conditions of children by purchasing land and setting up an orphanage.
The costs amount to about 50,000 – 75,000 €.
Let us together make the dream of these children come true for a home in security and love.
