Organization Description
We are a Community Based Charitable Organization with a focus to bring hope to Orphans and Vulnerable Children in the city of Jinja in Uganda, East Africa.

Our mandate is to give practical support to the orphans in our neighborhood by aiding them with food, shelter, education, clothing, and medical care.

We welcome you to take part and share the passion of this cause as we change lives of these tender souls one life at a time. Our practical support offers a Ugandan vulnerable child hope and an opportunity to have a destiny.

Smile of Hope is a duly registered charity that is touching the lives of OVCs in Uganda.

Our thrust is to give hope to the Orphans and Vulnerable Children through basic education, proper health, counseling as well as a place to call home. Many of these children are victims of the HIV/Aids, while others are victims of child abuse in dysfunctional families. When you choose to join hands with us in this noble cause you will be giving hope to a child in Africa.

Remember, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27

There is an estimated 153 million orphans who have lost one parent in the world today and about 17,900,000 orphans of these have lost both parents and are living in orphanages or on the streets and lack the care and attention required for a normal and healthy life. These vulnerable children are at stake and at the risk of disease, malnutrition, and death as well the basic necessities of life like food, shelter, safe water, plus proper education.

According to UNICEF (March, 2012, Uganda has 2.5 million orphans and 1.2 million of these are orphaned by AIDS. These figures depict a dire need due as many Ugandan children are suffering as a result of being orphaned. Now you can see the great need to give a Ugandan orphan hope. You can make a difference today.
