HISTORY

Light of Hope Orphans Care Organization is a Community Based charity and nonprofit organization that was founded in 2013 by Mugulusi Geoffrey to improve the welfare and well-being standards, show God’s love, and restore hope for Orphans, Vulnerable Children, and children who come from families that are affected by HIV/AIDS epidemic and extreme poverty in the Community. Later on, Mugulusi Geoffrey shared the idea with a team of members who embraced it and also shared a common aim and passion to care, help and support the Orphans, Vulnerable Children, and children affected by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty in the community. The team of members joined Mugulusi Geoffrey and in 2015, Light of Hope Orphans Care Organization was officially registered with the Government Authority as a Community Based and Non-profit Organization in Uganda.

We are founded on Christian values and Born Again Faith. We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and since Christ is the Lord of all life, we endeavor to share the love and the knowledge of Jesus Christ while providing for the needs of orphans, vulnerable children, and needy people in the community.

We are located in Buwenge Town Council, in Jinja District and our aim is to provide care and support for Orphans, Vulnerable Children, and Children who come from families that are affected by HIV/AIDS epidemic and extreme poverty in the Community.
