New Life for Orphans Uganda

Our story

New Life For Orphans Uganda was established in 2013 to support orphans and vulnerable children in the Mityana District of Uganda. The children who NLFO support suffer due to family problems, early marriages, loss of one or both parents, HIV-AIDS and child labour. The organisation is mostly active in the Banda Sub-County in which 28% of children are orphans and 68% of children below the age of 15 have no access to education.

Since its establishment in 2013 the organisation has grown, and the number of children in the care of NLFO has increased from 10 to 50. As the organisation continues to grow due to the large number of children in need in the region, the hope is that more children in the area will be given access to education as well as good housing.

The work of NLFO has been observed in person by four eye witnesses of friends in the UK so far to date - one trusted Ugandan national church pastor (2017) and three different UK citizens visiting Uganda at three different times (2018, 2019 and 2021), each with past experience in and knowledge of the country and culture.

In September of 2021, after years of renting facilities and facing a sudden need to move, NLFO needed a place of their own. So friends and supporters of NLFO from around the world helped them raise £6000 for phase one of a building project to finally have their own shelter on their own land.

NLFO is currently seeking to raise an additional £4800 to complete phase two of the building project, putting in doors, windows, plastering walls and getting basic furnishings. The photo above was taken in mid-November with the children in front of the new building during the visit of a friend from the UK.

They also have regular day to day needs, such as food, clothing and medicine, and would love to host Christmas Gift Packages for the kids. A full list of the break down of costs needed currently (as of 1 December 2021) can be found below. We will update this page from time to time as needs are met.

Please will you consider joining other friends of NLFO from around the world to give as much or as little as you are able, as often as you can, and share this page around with others you know who may be able to help? Thank you so much in advance. Note - although this page is not set up for receiving automated monthly donations, people from outside of the UK who would like to donate regularly to support the work of NLFO can use this page to do so by simply coming back and giving each month. People in the UK who would like to set up a regular reoccurring donation through their bank can do so - simply get in touch with Davis via his email address below, and he'll put you in touch with NLFO friends in the UK who can help you do that.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact New Life for Orphans CEO, Sserubiri Davis at newlife.orphans (at) yahoo.com. If you wish to speak with friends of NLFO in the US or UK, Davis can put you in touch with us.
