That is how Dauphine describes her life then. Her father had died from HIV/AIDS and her mother couldn't provide for their young family without him.

Without school, Daphne’s future was laid out in front of her. Most orphaned girls grow up in poverty. They tend to get married young. Their children are less likely to go to school. They are trapped in an endless cycle of poverty.

Thankfully, Daphne’s life took a different turn. A small primary school opened right in her village. It was free and it was meant for HIV/AIDS orphans like her. She was one of the lucky children who got to go to Mama Africa sponsored Primary Schools. 

She told us "I got a chance to put on shoes and have free education, which I never believed in my life."

She learned to believe again. She worked hard to do well in school and you were there to help her whenever she faced trouble. Last year all of her hard work paid off. She was admitted to

Daphine is an amazing young woman and we know she will do amazing things for the world. Her success is only possible because she you gave her the opportunity.

Thank you!

September 2016 second term school holiday is just around the corner, and we can't think of a better way to honor you all who have given a sponsorship gift in your or someone else’s name to help some of the thousands of children living on the streets of Uganda.

A gift to Mama Africa the voice Uganda would help children like Shafic, age 12, who was found on the streets sleeping in an old car, whom people referred him to as a "Robber".  Shafic narrates, "I never saw my father nor my mum so I never believed in parental Love.  My Grandmother tried but she never had enough to sustain me in school so I was given to one who said she was my Auntie In this she used to lock me in the house she claimed that she was preventing me from walking away from home since I wasn't going to school."

But one day Shafic’s( Auntie) left the house unlocked, and walk away he did, towards the capital city of Kampala, then in makidnye "I came alone all the way, very scared since it had already grown dark.  I kept looking back but no one was coming after me.  God helped me and I got to this small town, which was still busy.  However, people started closing their stores to return home.... I became very worried and afraid when I realized there were no people moving in that town any more.  I was scared and I kept asking myself, what if sorcerors got me here, wild animals or dogs attacked me because I was seeing them move around?"

Eventually I got used to street life one day policemen and the local council found and offered to help him by taking him to Mama Africa the voice Uganda Drop-In Center in Kampala.  At Mama Africa the voice Uganda Shafic says "I feel very safe here and okay now.  I play with my friends, learn and also get food.  I thank Mama Africa the voice Uganda because they are going to take me to my grandmother’s place to say hello and visit.”

On March 7th, shafic was accompanied by Mama Africa social workers to his grandmother’s home, where he received a very warm welcome.  His grandmother praised Mama Africa for their "merciful heart", adding that nobody else would have done such an act of mercy.

Shafic's life was transformed with the help of Mama Africa the voice Uganda, and we couldn't do our work without the generous support of our donors like you.  Thank you for your help in returning Shafic to a loving family.  Won't you consider making another donation in honor of of any one in your family or your birthday?  To donate, please go on global giving .org then type in Mama africa the voice Uganda.

In less than a month, your Mama Africa children will be going back to school
Your students are so excited!


Your incoming class is excited to start the New Year and, judging by their excellent PLE scores, we know they are ready!
The PLE, or Primary Leaving Examination, is the test used across Uganda to determine how ready primary students are to go on to secondary or vocational school. There is a lot of pressure to do well on this test because it is one of the few things that can change the course of a student's life. If a student does well on the exam, they are admitted into the best secondary or vocational schools in Uganda. If they do poorly, they might not be able to continue school at all.


We are happy to tell you that Joy , Cissy  and  Mercy of your students earned a B or higher on their exam!


They will be entering our New Year and start the School Term in 2016 with confidence this month. These students will have a tuition, Food, and everything else they need to excel thanks to you!


Our goal is to complete start the school & home foundation in Kalule this year so even more children and students will have a home and classes so they can learn and grow at your school. We think we can succeed with your generosity!
We'll be keeping you updated as more construction is completed and your students continue to achieve.
Thank you for all that you do! You are a hero!

Thank you for supporting Mama Africa water project! Our mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person on the planet, especially in the slums of Kampala and the rural areas of Luwero district and we're so glad you've joined us.


Mama Africa today owns 3 acrres of land in Kulule, Bombo Road, this is located within Kayindu sub-county in Lowero District. The parish covers an area of approximately 45 square kilometers and has a population of about 6000 people.
The parish is sub divided into five villages, 94% of the people are peasants.

There are several communities without safe, clean, nearby water supplies and toilets. Three village centers have very poor water and sanitation facilities. Because of this, waterborne illnesses are very common among these communities.

Right now, you're helping to support our general water fund. For these gifts, we are assigning every $ and the funds to specifically the water project since the drilling of the water project at kalule kayindu means dealing with many tricky variables -- supply price fluctuation, change of plans due to drills that don’t reach water, and other unpredictable challenges.

We have so far received General water gifts of $6900 and we need $ 11,000.
With your gift which is allowing us to remain efficient and flexible during the implementation process, so we can use your funds where they're really needed. Rest assured, 99% of the money received will help fund water project costs at Mama Africa property!

One of the water projects we have done succefully in the slums of Kosovo which was funded by one family in Tampa. In the last decade, Kosovo slums kulekaana has faced luck of clean safe water and today, they are very happy they have water. Life has returned to normal that today the community has access to safe water. Most rural families survive on less than five liters of water per day and walk up to four hours to collect it from open sources..

We can't wait to show you the kind of impact you're making!
