iFamile Emu Children's Home

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

iFamile Emu Children is looking for helpful volunteers with a compassionate heart to save orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda!

They provide food and shelter for orphaned and vulnerable children, yet the aim is to work within the community to set up sustainable development projects which both support the orphanage and benefit the community. This children’s center in Uganda began in 2014 and is a Non Governmental Organization-NGOCBO organization which means Community Based Organization and they are found in the very roots of the needier people in Uganda- East Africa.

Since its beginning, the organization has grown to more than 45 children and teenage mothers, it’s found in Bukedea district in a Village called Kidongole 200 kilo miles from the capital city Kampala and from the international Air Entebbe main Air port its 47 miles.

They help and empower the children in Uganda by giving these children the means for a better life through psycho-social support. These children are vulnerable to dangerous traditional cultural practices that were exposing them to the dangers of child labour, heavy domestic work, sexual abuse, forced early marriage, exposure to HIV/AIDS and teenage pregnancies.

The curriculum focuses on inspiring a sense of purpose in the hearts of each child by teaching them one person can be the difference. iFamile Emu Children’s Home believes that it is up to the next generation to break the cycle, and unify a continent whose unfathomable potential has been locked for over a century.
