​                                                                                          ​​​BACKGROUND
Poverty can have a devastating effect on a parent’s  ability to manage and provide appropriate care for their children.  Failure to support children and youth during the most vulnerable time of  their life directly impacts their quality of life both directly and  indirectly.   Hope Children’s foundation serves close to 200 children  and youth and a great number of its cases involve families living in  poverty.
The increasing number of deaths in Sub Saharan Africa due to    war situations, Malaria, HIV/AIDS, has given birth to an increasing  number of orphans and the rise of child headed homesteads. According to  UNICEF, their website… www.unicef.org indicates that the number of orphans is estimated to be over 132  million and other sources suggests closer to 143-163 million worldwide.  Subsequently a number of these orphans have been left with no one to  look up to. An analysis of all the above, gave birth to Hope Children’s  Foundation in 1999.  
Our Children’s Orphanage package comprises a  Home, Kindergarten and a Primary school. In line with the Government's  policies, Hope Children’s Foundation believes in placing children in a  family environment rather than orphanage centers. We are committed to  share knowledge and expertise with the people in the family and  community. We have developed links with national and international  organizations and international volunteers

In 2013, for a month and a half, I volunteered with the foundation. At the Kigoma school and hosted by the Kalema family. I did all sorts of school and leisure activities with children, teachers ... and became part of a large family and the culture and life of Uganda. My heart and my mind is not the same since then, so I recommend to all people who want to volunteer, and grow inside as a person, do not hesitate to contact them and live their experience, I hope to return someday."

My wife and I had a wonderful time during the summer of 2016! It was just a short stay of one week, but we were blessed with opportunities to meet great kids and wonderful teaching staff. Mr. and Mrs. Kayemba had such a strong, admirable personality. Extremely dedicated and resolute in what they do, that is to help kids with difficult backgrounds. Homestay at their place was a great learning occasion for us too. Even though adapting to new environment for us was not necessarily easy , they were very helpful and it was gratifying for us. We had many fun, memorable moments with their kids as well as the kids in the neighborhood. We hope that their project of reconstructing their schooling site goes well, and wish all the best for everyone we met there!"

In 2013 I had the greatest experience Via Hope Childrend’s Foundation, I had 2 months in Uganda. It’s pretty simple to describe the outcome, the foundation gave me the biggest experience ever. Bigger than I’ve ever thought. Looking back, I also would like to emphasize, that they were very helpful with every questions I might have – so my advice to young people considering such a trip, don’t be nervous, just do it! You will not regret it. The other volunteers and I arrived at the school in the mornings. Absolutely one of my favorite times of the day! When arriving at the school, every child ran to meet us and for hugs. When school lesson starts, we taught our classes in basic math, English, science etc. Sometimes we also just told a story, drawing, showing pictures from our own country or played different kinds of sport outside. I got friends from my first day at the school. I was, I still am, very surprised how the children searched for my attention and friendship. This made the place even harder to leave when time was up. I can only recommend such an experience."
