Roof a Home for 50 Orphans in Uganda

A microproject by Mountains of hope childrens ministries
Vetted

Summary

This funding will roof a home that will house 50 orphaned children in Mpigi, Uganda and 2 carers. The home we are building includes sleeping rooms, a kitchen, a clean water source, and a small farm and vegetable patch. The water source we are building will also benefit the surrounding community which consists of 500 people. We are employing local people in the community to assist in building, as well as volunteer assistance.

Challenge

The project has constructed a four roomed house on the orphanage two acres of land, the building has reached roofing level but does not have funds for purchase of Iron sheets, timber and nails for roofing. Once we have roofed the home, 50 children will shift in to the new building immediately

Solution

Building a new house on the two acres of land owned by the orphanage will stop the need to pay ongoing rent. Any future funds raised can then go directly towards offering the children a real home with regular meals and schooling. The orphanage's additional land will be made into a vegetable patch & small farm. This will mean the home will be self-sustaining and be used in practical lessons for the children, so they learn how they can look after themselves, once they leave home.

Long-Term Impact

A new orphanage within the community will offer opportunities for micro-businesses such as chicken farming and egg production, to grow. Once these businesses are profitable, more cost-effective and efficient feeding systems will be bought, to optimize land use and capacity. The project will also provide clean drinking water to the entire community meaning that there will be fewer water related illnesses
