St. Mugagga Boys Home

Unverified non-profit organisation

St. Mugagga Boys’ home is a Catholic founded home by the Diocese of Jinja. It was established in 1967 to reduce the dying rate of children between the age of 4-17 years due to various factors including poverty as the major factor, and violence in the homes.

It was a diocesan effort through Brother Herman Wubbles, who by then working with the diocese mostly in child affairs, realizing numbers of infants dumped at the presbytery gates and convents. In cooperation with the Brothers and other authorities located within Jinja Municipality and other urban centers in eastern Uganda to remote villages, he came out with a plan to start St Mugagga Boys Home as a solution to above mentioned problem and help children to live a dignified life.
