Welcome

Welcome to the Miryante Community Centre!

Miryante Community Centre is a non-profit organization that provides funding and services for a number of projects including Miryante Foster Care Program and St. Gyavira Buyende Home. Both of these projects provide support and services for orphans and vulnerable children in a foster care setting. 

The Miryante Foster Care Program is located in Western Uganda, primarily in Kyegegwa and Mubende Districts. Miryante's team of social workers work with District Child Welfare Officers to identify children who are orphaned and vulnerable. Social workers move within the communities providing food, clothes, agricultural support, school fees, medical care, hygiene products, and counseling services to the children and their families

St. Gyavira Buyende Home is located in Buyende District in Eastern Uganda. It opened in 2018 in response to the overwhelming need for services for orphaned and vulnerable children with long term medical conditions, largely as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It provides food, clothing, school fees, and counseling services for these children who are living with families in the community.

Sponsor Our Children!

This site is set up for sponsorship of individual children. Money from sponsorship goes to provide each child with housing, food, school fees, clothing, complete health care, and psychosocial support from a staff of trained social workers and caretakers. We connect you with a child you select and you will receive updates on the child and the project as a whole. Thank you for your support!
