Your generous donation will take these children off the streets and protect them from abuse or neglect
St. Joseph's Shining Little Stars is a Christian non-profit organization that aims to provide Ugandan orphan children - newborn to 5 years old- with a temporary home, equipped to offer shelter, nutritious food, and early childhood education in a caring home in Jinja, Uganda.
Our goal is to work with their families to evaluate possible reintegration of the child into their parents or extended biological families. Only after we have exhausted all efforts at family reintegration, would we begin the process of identifying potential adoptive/foster parents who will embrace them as valuable members of their families as well as provide them with a caring and safe environment, by protecting them from abuse, abandonment or neglect.
Uganda has one of the largest population of orphans per capita with approximately 2.6 million orphans, according to UNICEF. These children come from families devastated by extreme poverty, often lack access to education, proper nutrition and health care. They need our help desperately.
Please consider a donation to put their lives on track . Your contribution is tax exempt.
Your donation will be used for the following:
1-$5000 to furnish the home with beds, cribs, mosquitos nets, activity room, kitchen, etc
2- $1000 per month ($12000 per year) to rent the house
3- $2500 per month ($30000 per year) to run the house with food, utilities, medicines, health care, staff
