Currently, Miryante Community Centre provides services to 160 orphans and vulnerable children through Miryante Children's Home and 30 orphans and vulnerable children with medical complications through St. Gyavira Buyende Home.  The greatest need of Miryante Community Centre is sponsors to pay for the expenses of the children who are receiving services both in the home and the community. These expenses include the cost of food, clothing, school fees, medical expenses, and money to pay the caretakers and social workers. Miryante Community Centre relies on donations to meet the costs of providing for all the unsponsored children. 

Starting in November 2010, Miryante was able to purchase 3 cows and calves for milking and a bull. Through their breeding project and local contributions, as of 2021, they have a herd of 28 cattle which provide milk for the children for their breakfast porridge. The project is seeking funding to buy additional cattle to provide milk and income for orphans living with foster families.

In September of 2010, Miryante started a goat rearing program that is designed to improve nutrition and start a savings program for the children. As of 2021, they have expanded their goat project to 40 goats through breeding and local contributions. Miryante hopes to have a total of 50 goats at the project. Any child who completes the program receives a goat to rear and help them get started in saving money.

St. Gyavira Buyende Home is in need of land and a structure to provide an office, a counseling room and temporary housing for orphans and vulnerable children in case of emergency placement. Miryante Community Centre is raising money to purchase land and build a structure, pit latrine, and dig a shallow well.
