SG$6,050.00raised of $20,000.00 goal
(Update as of 24 November 2022)
This is an ongoing self-sustainable project from 2021 to 2022.
Aim of Fundraise
The main aim of this fundraise is to help the orphanage in Uganda set up two income-generating projects that can bring in daily income to support the orphanage and make it self-sustainable. The project's launch would greatly impact them as it not only solves their current poverty situation but for the future to come, and the generations after, which they could expand and help even more children as well.
- First project (2021) - Poultry Project
Cost: USD$3,743.57 (Around SGD$5146.42) - Completed last year and is now providing them income for their daily necessities (like food, clothing, and sanitary). They are no longer starving or have to live with hungry stomachs.
- Second project (2022) - Dairy Project
Cost: USD$10,806.95 (Around SGD$14856.69) - Ongoing and aiming to be completed by December this year. This will help to generate income for the children to attend school - which is crucial because education is an important stepping stone to breaking out of the poverty cycle.
As the saying goes:
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
This is a follow-up campaign after their first lockdown in 2020 which lasted for several months--as a result, their main providers of the orphanage were not able to work and hence lost all income. Unfortunately, the government did not provide any assistance amidst the tough situation in their area, the soldiers would beat them if they try to move out of the compound. The 27 orphans and the social worker were starving at home, while the social worker could only request help online but to no avail as this orphanage (Hands of Hope Uganda) did not have any official page at that time, which we managed to raise some funds to sustain their daily necessities (you may see here: https://gogetfunding.com/save-starving-orphan-chil...).
Our hope and prayer for this fundraise is so for the self-sustaining projects to come to pass, and with that, they could grow and eventually break out of poverty for the generations to come. We believe the potential these children have, if, given the space and the right resources, they could dream and live fully in their God-given destiny and calling.
About the Orphanage
Hands of Hope Uganda (Reg no: BAL/05/2019/20/058) is located in a village in Kamuli District Eastern Uganda (East Africa). It is a Community Based Organization (CBO) founded by late Ngozi Steven that started with 12 orphans and now it has increased to 62 orphans, but some left to their relatives/foster homes for the time being due to the Covid-19 situation, leaving with the current 27 orphans in the home.
In light of the COVID-19, Uganda has been facing several rounds of lockdown. Last year of June 11, the government announced another round of 42 days lockdown.
