Give a Child a Home and a Family

 
 
 
 
 

Bethel Babies’ Home (BBH)

In our spacious, clean and well-equipped Babies’ Home we can care for approximately 40 children. The babies who come into BBH are sometimes malnourished, frail and in need of round the clock support from our team of nannies.The overall aim of FOP is to provide children with a loving home and a secure future. Children who come to us are initially supported in our Bethel Babies’ Home, which was opened in 2014.

We work really closely with local nurses and hospitals to ensure the children get the right medical attention and additional support to thrive. It goes without saying that alongside the very practical support, they get all the cuddles and love that are so important.

Spending the very early years of their lives in BBH, our children are provided with a perfect environment to prepare them to move on to one of our family units later.  When the children reach the age of three or four years they move into dedicated Family Homes, where a loving housemother will care for up to eight children in a family environment. This will be the permanent home for each child until adulthood. 

In 2018 an inspection by a combined UNICEF/Ugandan Government team rated our Bethel Babies’ Home as one of the best in all of Uganda, and an excellent model for others to copy. As of June 2020, FOP was responsible for the care of 54 babies and young children, the oldest to date being eight years of age.



 
 
 
 

Family Homes

Our aim is to provide a loving Christian environment for our children to grow up in as they develop their own skills, talents and unique personalities. We are committed to caring for them until they reach independence.

As of 2020 we have five family homes, each accommodating up to eight children, with their own Housemother and Nanny; this will be the permanent home for each child until they grow up.

Here the children learn the responsibilities necessary to help provide for their siblings, doing domestic chores and learning to grow their own produce.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Finding caring staff

Our managers, house mothers and nannies play a critical role in the lives of the children we look after, and we take great care in the way we choose them. It’s essential that our children have the consistency of carers with whom they can develop a lifelong bond. We look for loving Christians who are called to commit their lives to these beautiful children, teaching them the principles of growing up to serve God
