Supporting & empowering

Phase 2 finished
February 7, 2020
Worldwide Friends of Ugandan Orphans began construction in October 2019. 4 months later, a 2-story edifice emerges to the excitement of onlooking orphans!
Who we help
Orphans in Uganda lacking basic living necessities including food, bedding, proper shelter, medicine and educational opportunity, but with a determined will to find a way forward in life and become independent. Orphans are children from age 6 to 25 mostly in the remote villages of Mityana and Kangulumira.
What we do
Construct dormitory, kitchen and school buildings, find and fund sources of healthy food, construct clean water and energy sources, provide medical testing and treatment for AIDS and other serious diseases, pay school fees, help older orphans find jobs and pursue higher education, and generally improve orphans' quality of life and help them become independent.
iPads for Trio
Orphans at the Trio School & Orphanage in Mityana, Uganda share one of four iPads donated by Worldwide Friends of Ugandan Orphans in June 2019.
From orphan to school teacher
Josephine started as an orphan. Supported by Worldwide Friends of Ugandan Orphans, she completed her education and now teaches the orphans of Trio School in Mityana, Uganda. With the help of WFOUO, she hopes to attend university.
Food for Mityana
Every month, Worldwide Friends of Ugandan Orphans purchases beans & rice for the 100 orphans of Trio Orphanage in Mityana. Previously, the children ate only corn flower mixed with water.
"l am Rebecca, age 14 years and l am in "senior two" at pride secondary school in Mityana. l have written this letter to thank you for having supported our school by providing food for us, and buying books and bedsheets.

Thank you so much for your wonderful work, and l would like you to know that I started my own nursery at this school. Thank you so much." (July, 2019)
Orphan from Trio School, Mityana, Uganda
"My life was changed for the better by the support received from 'Friends' via Mr. Eutychios Kalogerakis. When I was a very young child, my father died and my sick mother left me and my two brothers in the care of my grandmother... Now I am able to rent a small place and provide a home for my two younger brothers plus help my poor grandmother."
Orphan from Golomolo, Uganda
"When I was very young, my parents had already a lot of children and due to poverty and illness were unable to take care of us... All these years at Trio... the Friends of Orphans group [has] helped us so much to have enough food for the children at Trio to receive two meals daily."
