Mountains of hope childrens ministries

Organization Description: 

Mountains of hope is a non-profit charity organization looking after orphaned and destitute children in Uganda.

Mountains of Hope is inspired and driven by the potential that is inherent in all children; the potential not only to survive but to thrive, to become leaders who bring positive change to the lives of the children and their communities.

Our area of excellence and great strength is our deep understanding of childrens' experiences of orphanhood, deprivation, exclusion and vulnerability, and our dedication to placing the healing of those experiences at the center of our work.

We work in Uganda, and at this moment, we are assisting 28 orphaned and destitute children and their family members regardless of race, creed or gender. Our distinctive approach focuses on working with orphaned and destitute children throughout their journey from birth to young adulthood, as well as with their families, local organizations and communities to create the environment children need to thrive.
