New Hope African Children's Ministries is a grassroots, Christian charity that exists to feed, shelter, and educate orphans and vulnerable children so that they may grow into leaders of character for Uganda's future.
Based in Busia, Uganda, New Hope alleviates the suffering of children affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty by providing them food, healthcare, clothing, a loving home environment, an excellent education, a hopeful future and, most importantly, the childhood which disease and poverty almost stole from them.
We ultimately seek to train these young victims of poverty and disease into well educated men and women equipped with the character and leadership skills necessary to lift Uganda and all of Africa from the depths of civil strife and massive poverty.
New Hope was founded in 2003 by a local Ugandan couple, Ken and Suzan Mulago. With a $15,000 grant from the Mustard Seed Foundation, Ken and his wife constructed a six-room secondary school that doubles as an orphanage home. Since then, New Hope has expanded to care for over 100 orphans and vulnerable children ages 2 to 20. As a grassroots charity, we directly serve the children in need. All the donations we receive go directly to support our operation in Busia, where less than 3% of the budget is used to cover administrative and fundraising costs.
