Every child deserves a place to grow, a place to lay their head, a place to be loved. Every child deserve a home full of hope

Edith Lukabwe has taken on what no one else would, creating a Home of Hope for children with severe disabilities in Uganda.  But her home is now severely overcrowded and at risk for being shut down.

This is your chance to change the lives of 56 children, forever!

In Uganda, children with disabilities are they most vulnerable. They are thought of as curses, or even demon possession.  They are often abandoned or hidden inside dark room, locked away. They are abused and subjected to inhumane traditional healing practices. 

Ten years ago, when Edith Lukabwe opened Home of Hope she thought she may be able to bring love and hope into the lives of 5 children. Now her home is home to 56 children with severe disabilities and still growing.  

These children have no where else to go. She cannot turn them away. But the Home is severely overcrowded. Originally built for 20 children, beds now crowd the corridors. The staff are overwhelmed and under resourced. Children, many of whom are unable to sit on their own, line the hallways. There is no place to play or grow. If Home of Hope continues this way it will be shut down. 

In March 2017 Edith began fundraising to expand her home and bring love into more lives. So far she has raised enough to purchase 2 additional acres and begin construction on a second home. She has big dreams to also build a clinic and a school. 

Can you help Edith bring Hope to more Children?
