Welcome! We are Arise and Shine Orphanage Children's Home. Arise and Shine Orphanage Childrens Home is a non-profit organization located in Buligo Village Iganga Municipality Eastern Uganda and was established by Pr. Nabirye Tapenensi in 2008.Arise and Shine Orphanage started with only 10 kids,though we have been adopting children over the years, we have grown to over 150 kids ages 3-15. The Orphanage has been running strictly on volunteer work and from local support.
Our goals for the foundation are:
* Propagate the practical Christian faith
* Managing a resource center for foster care and parenting of
orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable children
* Transform the socio-economic status of needy families
* Promote sustainable, community based health care
education and sensitization
* Operate Christian educational centers to promote moral
and academic excellence
* Advocating against child abuse or any form of inhuman
behavior with an aim of inflicting pain

We have many programs for 2012 that you can help us accomplish! Firstly we have a program to provide the 40% kids infected with HIV proper medical treatment , Currently, we have no power. We would love to save enough money to install solar panels so we can have light in the, classrooms and the shelter. Lastly, we hope to create a poultry Unit and a milker cow to help supplement the children nutrition .

The orphanage provides pre-primary education (nursery or pre school) and has 4 other classes, baby-baby class, baby class, middle class, and biggie class (divided by age group). The teachers at Arise and Shine Orphanage are extremely passionate about the children's education and future, but also rely on local support for their own personal income. We are working without proper school materials due to inadequate funds.
We provide the children as best we can by giving them food, shelter, clothes and the most important thing: we are trying to provide to them with a proper education. By giving them a proper education they will get the opportunity to become independent and change their life situation and set high standards for themselves. Arise and Shine Orphanage Children's Home wants to help all the children living in poverty and with illness, but we can only do this as far as we can reach! Thank you for surporting us.

  • Meet Miriam. One of our angels at the orphanage. While all our kids need so much, many of them need medical assistance. We are currently lobbying for supplements and basic medicines - but for kids like Miriam, eye surgery is the only option.
