Many people have the good heart of wanting to do good. They want to help those who are less privileged to have better lives.
Unfortunately, they do not have the right channels through which to assist. This is why we have taken on this mantle of making it possible to bring help to orphans in Uganda.
There are many organizations in Uganda that claim to offer assistance to orphans but unfortunately they use the help to gain wealth for themselves. If they decide to help, they only favor children who are not orphans, but just friends and relatives.
This is why as Kisa foundation for the less privileged we create direct access between the orphans and the people who donate to us.
An orphan is a child whose two biological parents passed on. An orphan is not necessarily a child, even a grown up person can be an orphan if his or her parents are dead.
In the Ugandan context an orphan is a child who has no one caring for him or her. Adults are not usually referred to as orphans because they can take care of themselves.
Therefore the term remains to only apply to young children or babies who are taken care of by persons who have no biological attachment to them.
Kisa foundation gives help to orphans through providing them food, an education, soft skills, morals, discipline, a home, clothes, among other things.
Educate an orphan is one of the endeavors or projects we have put in place to help us provide the children with education. The endeavor has helped us to provide lower primary education to more than 50 orphans. With assistance from many people both from Africa and outside it, we have been able to construct a lower primary school. The school is known as Kisa Primary school, located in Wakiso, Nansana, Uganda. This school accommodates a total of 150 children. We enroll both children with parents and those under the organization's care. With this school, our goal to educate orphans from different parts of Uganda has yielded some fruits.
Another project we have undertaken. Under this endeavor Kisa foundation, engages in agriculture on a small scale to get food to feed the children. With paid assistance from local labour, we do gardening two times every year. We grow food for both the foundation and for the school. For the food we can't grow, we use funds we receive from donations to buy. We also buy other supplements for the children's' diet. We would like to appreciate to our donors who push us through times when the prices of food are high in Uganda. Without you this endeavor would have failed.
This is another of our drives that has helped us provide clothes for the orphans under the care of the organization. We collect both new and old clothes from shops and people respectively. These clothes are then distributed to the orphans in respective sizes. So far this is one of the successful endeavors we have undertaken. No orphan under our care goes without clothing on his or her back.
Our help us to extend a hand to different orphans in different parts of Uganda. If we do it alone, we may not be able to do much.
Fortunately we have friends who have become family to our organization through the support they give us.
These people and organizations have helped us reach potential we had thought impossible. Through donations both financially, technically, spiritual, we have been able to help as many orphans as possible.
We continue to welcome more and more people who can assist us in any way.
You can become a part of our growing family and meet and interact with the children that we help physically.
