The culture of Uganda, as in many African countries, encourages the resettling of orphans within extended families. However, they often become house servants and not really part of the family.
Part of our longer-term vision is to help reshape the way orphans are treated. Our hope is to establish a temporary home for orphans and then take them and their potential new family through an awareness programme that develops a true family, with hope, love and positive dependency on each other. Whenever possible we want this to be based on real Christian love.
It hasn’t started yet... but watch this space!
