Due to Miryante’s ability to successfully provide quality services in the Kyegegwa District for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), the Miryante Board of Directors and the Diocese of Buyende have joined together to form St. Gyavira Buyende Home in Eastern Uganda.
This project is under Miryante Community Centre management and provides foster care services and full care within a home for a total of 30 orphans and vulnerable children with medical conditions. Buyende district is one of the poorest districts in Uganda and has been grossly neglected by both government and NGOs. There are high rates of HIV and a high number of OVC within the district.
If you are interested in contributing towards this project, please give via this donation category. Donations will go towards providing direct services to the children in the foster care program and those residing at the home.
We will be providing updates on this project within the Miryante Blog and Newsletters.
