We are a home for 60+ orphaned children living with HIV/AIDS in Jinja, Uganda.

Our heart is to provide a loving family for children who need a place of shelter.  Many of our children are orphans and others have suffered abuse or abandonment.  All come from homes that have experienced the brokenness that HIV/AIDS brings.  God is the Father to the fatherless, and He loves these children.  He sees and knows each one and has plans for their lives.  He knew long before we did these kids would need a home of their own where they would be loved, secure, and taught of Him.  Welcome to Our Own Home.

“With my mouth I will greatly extol the LORD; in the great throng I will praise Him.  For He stands at the right hand of the needy one, to save his life from those who condemn him.” Psalm 109:30-31
