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 Children Home and St. Gyavira Buyende Home. These projects cater for orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda through both in-house care and a foster-care model.

Miryante Children Home is a located in the Ft. Portal Diocese in Western Uganda. It is a Catholic-founded home and was opened in 2009 and currently provides services for over 160 children from the Ft. Portal Diocese who have lost parents as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, disease, or conflict in the region.

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!
