Project India 

The orphanage belongs to the relief organisation. Our leader is an impressive personality who gives his life to the poorest and most lost. He was awarded by the provincial authority for the exemplary design and management of the orphanage. We are grateful to be able to work with him. The children receive everything they need for a self-determined life later on. In addition to basic needs such as food, clothing, safety and medical care, the orphanage also attaches great importance to day structures, education and training. In addition, the children have enough time for games and sports and they also receive a lot of human warmth and affection. We started the project in 2014.

"Home Of Joy"

After completing two projects to support orphans in Uganda, the Foundation was looking for a new project in 2014. Foundation board member Dirk Schneider spent several months in Uganda and evaluated various possibilities. We then decided on the "Home of Joy" project in Masindi. In 2018, we then moved to Chopalwor. Here we were able to build a new orphanage with space for 40 children on our own piece of land. In addition, we support a small primary school, a maize mill and a tailor shop with a clothing shop in the immediate community.
