Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter – when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

About Homes of Promise

Isaiah 58 v12…’You will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.’

Homes of Promise is a Christian charity started in 2015 offering hope to the many vulnerable, poor and destitute in Uganda. Our vision is to see the words from Isaiah 58 come to fruition.

The main task of Homes of Promise is to rescue children from the poverty of life on the streets and, where possible, reconcile them to their families, find foster parents for orphans, and ensure that their physiological, psychological and spiritual needs are being met. The first home, George’s Place, is to be opened shortly. It will have the capacity for 15 boys at a time; transitional accommodation will be offered, with the objective of supporting boys to receive full time education including life skills and vocational training.

We are based in Kampala where our work with street children is located. We are feeding between 50-70 boys, 3 times a week, treating minor cuts and grazes (taking those needing treatment to clinics or hospitals) providing clothes and restoring hope to the many orphans, vulnerable and abandoned homeless youngsters.

We also rebuild/restore homes for widows and their children in villages across the country, and provide building materials for organisations seeking to promote the Christian Faith.

Recently we supported a pilot scheme training local ophthalmologists in new glaucoma procedures which resulted in larger charities furthering the work in four countries across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Thank you for looking at our website and some of the work we have been undertaking. If you would like more information or wished to be added to our e-news, please email: info@hopuganda.org and we will be delighted to get back to you!

Through our work, we aim to share the love of Christ.
