Edith's Home

The Edith's Home Project works with total HIV/AIDS orphans in the community of Ngora, a small town in the Teso region of Uganda. Because of very limited resources, these children are put to the bottom of the pile in an already strained family situation. Edith's Home provides sponsorship of school fees and vocational training for orphans and supports them psychologically and spiritually. More recently we have extended our work to support orphans with no other family (child headed families) setting up micro enterprise initiatives that will sustain the project. These include food storage, farming, business loan schemes and office services. The project began in 2004 and at present supports over 250 orphans in three separate projects.
