We’re small and uniquely different from larger charities operating here in Africa. We pride ourselves on being able to show our visitors and donors exactly where their money is being spent. We have the advantage of being able to spend the large majority of donations received directly on the children and their educational needs.
Little Angels Uganda was founded in 2011 by Duncan Musinguzi Nelson when he was 24 years old. We started with 16 orphans and now have over 480 registered needy children under the care of Little Angels Uganda. These children are between the ages of 3 and 14 years old.
The loss of one parent in Uganda is tantamount to orphanage, the loss of one or both parents typically causes severe limitations on the ability to generate income. In turn this has a significant, negative impact on the well-being and social mobility of the child. A child who has lost one parent is referred to as a ‘single orphan’ and a child who has lost both parents is referred to as a ‘double orphan’.
Where possible orphans are brought under the care of a relative and this arrangement is facilitated and managed by Little Angels Uganda.
Little Angels needs all the help and support we can get, we can do so much with so little and you can be a part of that.
