Our story

Updated April 2023

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 number of children in the care of NLFO has increased from 10 to 100. The goal of NLFO is to provide as many of these children as possible with access to education as well as food and safe housing for those who need it.

The work of NLFO has been observed in person by four eyewitnesses, trusted by friends in the UK - one trusted Ugandan national church pastor (2017 and additional times since) 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 - as well as local leaders and inspectors, unknown personally to the international friends of NLFO but whose reports we have been given over the years as well.

In September of 2021, after years of renting facilities and moving around, NLFO needed a place of their own. So friends of NLFO from around the world helped them raise £16,840 to build their own building and finally have their own shelter on their own land. The photo above was taken in November 2021 during the visit of a friend from the UK. Pictures in the updates below are from April 2022, when the building was completed.

In November 2022 and January 2023, additional funds were raised to help NLFO purchase three acres of surrounding land so that they can develop their own sustainable food sources through farming. As of this update in April 2023, they have so far planted cassava and beans, and a further £2000 is needed to purchase additional farming tools, animals and other seeds.

Additionally, in February of 2023, 20 more orphaned children unexpectedly came to NLFO for help from another school that had closed down, bringing the total number of children in NLFO's care to 100. NLFO was able to temporarily house the children in rented rooms, while they built two new rooms onto the NLFO building. As of this update in April 2023, these rooms are nearly complete, and a further £1000 is needed for the solar lighting equipment.

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.

PLEASE NOTE - The Give As You Live platform supports recurring donations, making it simple to support NLFO with a regular monthly contribution via this fundraising page. And although the page amounts are listed in UK £, donations can also be made from other countries.

PLEASE FURTHER NOTE - Donations made through this page you are on now will be used for the one-time sustainable development costs for building and farming projects. If you'd like to make one-time donations or regular monthly donations as a partner with NLFO toward their ongoing monthly expenses for the care of these 100 children - such as food, medicine, clothing and school expenses - please use this separate "monthly team" fundraising page at donate.giveasyoulive.com/fundraising/new-life-for-orphans-uganda-monthly-team

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 international friends of NLFO (mostly in the US or UK, but other places as well), Davis can put you in touch with us.

PLEASE NOTE: This fundraiser has been set up by individuals who support NLFO and is facilitated by Afrinspire, UK registered charity number 1163774. All money given on this fund raising page will pass through Give As You Live to Afrinspire and on to New Life for Orphans in Uganda. If you wish to give directly to Afrinspire and not to NLFO, donations for the general work of Afrinspire should be made through totalgiving.co.uk/charity/afrinspire-1163774


Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto AFRINSPIRE.

April 2022 Update

The NLFO community is making great progress with the building. What remains needed now is £400 more toward installing a kitchen and £2000 for tempered glass for the windows and doors throughout the building (all the window and door frames are in, just the glass is needed now). If you can contribute toward these final building costs, please use this donation page to give securely through the registered UK charity Afrinspire, who will then send the funds on to NLFO - and everyone in the NLFO community sends you their thanks in advance.

The daily ongoing needs listed in the original post above remain roughly the same, every three months, though costs do fluctuate. Davis and the whole NLFO community sends their thanks once again to everyone who donates monthly toward their ongoing costs in support of the now 60 children accessing services from NLFO.

We have included an April photo and video with this update for you all as well. Any questions, as always, please do feel free to contact New Life for Orphans CEO, Sserubiri Davis at newlife.orphans (at) yahoo.com. If you wish to speak to any of the international friends organising and sharing this donation page, Davis can put you in touch with us. Many thanks again to everyone for your support of NLFO.
