At the heart of Masaka Kids Afrikana is the family structure. We believe that when orphaned and vulnerable children are placed in a loving family environment, with a mother and siblings who love them, the children find a place that they can call home.
Our mission is to rescue and save children in Uganda who are starving or in need, and seek to provide a loving and safe environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually with the ultimate goal being that they would know the saving love of Jesus Christ and grow in His grace.
The Masaka Kids Afrikana Children's Home was started in 2013,March 30 and we are currently caring for 25 children ages 2 and up, each with a unique life story.
The home strives to share the love of a family with our children as well as the people in the nearby villages. By raising these kids in a loving environment we hope to give them a foundation that will help them succeed in life and one day be able to give back to their community and the world.
Keeping children in school helps a nation thrive, which builds friends in vital parts of the world. We give our children a safe place to live, eat, love and learn, from age 5 all the way up to completing their secondary education, vocational training or university.
Masaka Kids Afrikana Children's Home
There are more orphans in Uganda than anywhere else in the world — over 2.4 million children — due to the AIDS epidemic, extreme poverty, and decades of civil conflict. We’re on the ground in Uganda to help as many of these young people as we can. We give children safe shelter, food, clothing, education and medical care. In Uganda, there are no public schools, so without school fees, children don’t learn. Through us, children gain an education and the life skills they need for future success. Their lives are completely transformed.
Masaka Kids Africana sponsored children have gone through some of the worst experiences a child could face — but through dance and song and sharing their love of Uganda, these children connect to each other and the world. They see their own potential — they have hope for their future.
