Our Projects

UNITED IN LOVE FOR A BETTER FUTURE

We in United in Love are fully dedicated to alleviating poverty by raising awareness and designing a holistic approach that would not only deal with the symptoms but would find the correct cause to enable to bring a positive and sustainable change into Ugandan’s communities.

Our journey as a team began with two young men from Uganda taking responsibility for their local community’s situation and reaching out for help. On the other side, a handful of people having compassion and taking responsibility to act. But it developed in a vision to break the poverty circle and bring tremendous relief to the poor in the long term.

These days, our focus is on designing our first family-care Village and developing an educational system that would help our children discover their talents and prepare them for life. We are also deeply committed to supporting sustainability projects that enable people in vulnerable communities to earn a living and restore their dignity.

Mpigi Community

BRINGING HOPE INTO THE
LIVES OF ABANDONED CHILDREN

Our central community is located in Mpigi Village, close to the capital city Kampala on the east side of Uganda. The connection between us happened when Ayipo, a young local guy with a natural talent for leadership, reached out through social media to raise awareness about the critical situation of orphans in Uganda. Being an orphan himself, he found himself taking care of approximately 65 children orphaned or abandoned by their families.

OUR CAMPAIGNS

United in Love Family-care Village

United in Love Village is currently our main project. A safe place where orphans and abandoned children should find a new home and experience the love of a family. We take care of 65 vulnerable children at the moment who desperately need a safe place to stay.

Primary School in Fort Portal Community

By our last visit, we promised over 170 vulnerable children to build a school in their community, so they all can attend a school and don't have to leave their families for most of the year. Your donation can make this possible.

Creating Sustainable Incomes

By supporting this project, you can bring hope for a better future to many vulnerable families, widows, or single mothers who are desperate for an opportunity to create a sustainable income to provide for their children.

Mpigi Community

Our central community is located in Mpigi Village, close to the capital city Kampala on the east side of Uganda. The connection between us happened when Ayipo, a young local guy with a natural talent for leadership, reached out through social media to raise awareness about the critical situation of orphans in Uganda. Being an orphan himself, he found himself taking care of approximately 65 children orphaned or abandoned by their families.
Supported by several volunteering women and men from the nearby community, they try to provide for those kids in the best possible way they could. By making and selling bricks from mud, it was possible most of the time to provide at least one meal a day.
We believe that these genuinely heroic deeds of a daily fight for those abandoned children were the reason for answering their prayers for support. This community is especially important to us, and we are deeply committed to putting all our effort into bringing relief to those people’s lives. Unlike other vulnerable communities supported by United in Love, this community consists only of orphaned and abandoned children and a handful of well-wishers. Right now, we are at the first steps of a project that will change the lives of thousands of vulnerable children in the next decade, and we invite you to be a part of this journey from the beginning with us. 

Thanks to one generous donor, we could purchase 3 acres of beautiful land near our community, which is approximately 60 percent of the land needed to start building our first United in Love family-care village. This village will be a safe place for our children to grow up in a loving and caring environment with access to healthcare, quality education, and sports and creative activities. We believe that every child deserves to grow up in a loving family; therefore, our community will be designed around separate family-units, where one foster mum would take care of about five to a maximum of eight children. Additionally, our children and mums will have access to professional counselors who will help them heal their past and prepare them for a brighter future.

Our next steps are to purchase the second part of the land, drill a safe borehole, bring electric power from the nearest sours, and build a first apartment block and a primary school. The electric power in Kampala is water energy; therefore, we decided not to focus
on alternative energies. It will be connected with much higher costs, and it would pull out our attempt to offer these children dignified living soon as possible, which is our priority. Till we can finance and build this place, these children have to continue to live in the place where we found them, sleeping all 65 children and five adults in an approximately 50 m2 brick house. Cooking three times a day on two little fireplaces for all of them and going to fetch water to the next borehole belongs to the volunteers and children’s everyday life. Nevertheless, we are very proud of all their efforts because, despite all the challenges, they did not give up on their hope for a better future. They were able to build wooden shelters that function as a school. In their best possible way and with three volunteer teachers’ help, follow the official government-approved syllabus to provide those children with a sense of a normal life. We are glad that we can help by assuring regular food delivery, providing matrasses, blankets, clothes, shoes, and study materials. But we know that it’s much more necessary than to cover basic needs to be able to heal the soul of a wounded child. We hope you find the compassion that has a place in the heart of those called to change this world, and we can be your connection to those who can’t help themselves.

Fort Portal Community

Our second location where we committed ourselves is a community near Fort Portal on the west side of Uganda. We get to know this community through one friend who met a sympathetic local leader while traveling through the beautiful lake nature surrounding Fort
Portal city.
Richard is a young man with a heart in the right place who dedicates his life to the service and support of local communities within his sub-county. He is overseeing the living conditions of the community’s members, identifies the most vulnerable ones, and distributes food support to them. Right now, there are 25 families that can’t sustain themselves without our help; therefore, we urgently seek 25 donors willing to cover these families’ food expenses, so they don’t have to see their children starve. If you want to sponsor one of those families, please go to the section sponsor child.

Besides the food support program, we help those families develop a sustainable project that will enable them to become independent within two to three years. Every community is different, depends on the location or skills of the members. In the case of this community, they decided to learn and develop a piggery farm that belongs to lucrative businesses here. We are also bound by our promise to parents and children of this community that we will build a school in this place so every child has access to education. Until now, we found sponsors to cover school fees for a year of a private school for around 50 children. But even though they rejoice in having a chance to go to school and sleep in bed, they are separated from their family for most of the year. Therefore, we are committed to building a primary school in this area and as our children grow to develop a secondary school as well. We have around 300 children who would attend our new school, from those over 170 falls into our target group of orphans and vulnerable children and are not visiting the school at the moment. The success of alleviating poverty depends entirely on the compassion and generosity of people like you. We hope that we inspired you to become a part of this mission.
