The future of orphans and vulnerable children can only be assured through access to basic education
Lack of tuition and scholastic materials are the major challenges which orphans and vulnerable children are facing in their education. Many children in lower and upper levels have not attained education because their parents have passed on or are in extreme poverty. This has forced many children out of school hence problems like early pregnancies resulting in early marriages, drug abuse, rampant theft, robbery, and prostitution.
Light of Hope Orphans Care Organization is working to provide better educational opportunities to orphans and vulnerable children. We empower them to complete their basic as well as advanced schooling and we achieve this by creating a safe and efficient learning environment, providing basic school supplies, tuition, reducing the level of education disparity, and also reducing the barriers that orphans and vulnerable children face for schooling.
Light of Hope Orphans Care Organization supports orphans and vulnerable children to access basic education through the provision of scholastic materials and tuition. We believe that through education support, these children can be equipped with knowledge and skills that will enable them to live meaningful lives while preparing for their future.
Scholastic materials that we provide include; exercise books, textbooks, pens, pencils, school uniforms, mathematical sets, Ipads, laptops, and school bags.
We can’t achieve a sustainable future for the orphans and vulnerable children without the help of our supporters!. A tiny seed sown by each of our supporters can grow a beautiful garden. Let’s join hands to support the education of orphans and vulnerable children. To make a donation please click DONATE button to see donation details or contact us by clicking HERE CONTACT US

FEEDING AND NUTRITION
Nutrition is the intake of food, considered in relation to the body’s dietary needs. Good nutrition – an adequate, well-balanced diet combined with regular physical activity – is a cornerstone of good health
Malnutrition starts early in infancy for children in Uganda. By estimate, at birth, about 11 percent of children are already stunted due to the poor nutrition of their mothers during pregnancy. The effects of malnutrition have resulted in a high disease burden for children in Uganda.
Orphans and vulnerable children often live in impoverished conditions and are prone to hunger and starvation. Light of Hope Orphans Care Organization believes that all children deserve a chance to thrive and succeed, No child should go to bed hungry. Through the support of generous and compassionate individuals, churches, and partner organizations, altogether we have the power to bring comfort and joy to children facing uncertainty, hunger, and starvation. With proper nutrition early in life, children can grow, develop and thrive to their potential. The food we provide includes; rice, maize flour (posho), beans, vegetables, irish, sweet potatoes, fish, meat, cassava, bananas, chicken and eggs, etc.

Being an orphan doesn’t mean they don’t have needs and feelings. Losing parents doesn’t mean they lost being humans, they are still people – just orphans. It breaks our heart to say that orphans are deprived of the basic necessities that support daily care. One of these necessities is clothing and footwear. Imagine not having anything appropriate to wear in harsh weather conditions how would you feel?. Orphans go through this misery every day of every year, even the images of orphan children wearing little to no clothing in Uganda are gut-wrenching. Many of these unfortunate children don’t have clothes and footwear to keep them warm in cold weather.
Please help us to improve the quality of life for an orphan today!. Let’s join our hands together to become the orphan’s family. We assure you that all your donations will make a direct impact on these children.
If a single drop of water can start a ripple effect in the ocean then one penny from your end can also make an everlasting change in the lives of orphans.
