CREATING A HOME
Our aim is to provide a loving Christian environment where children can develop their own skills, talents and unique personalities.
We are committed to caring for the children until they reach adulthood and are self-sufficient.
WORKING WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES
We are the only registered children’s home in the region.
We work exclusively with local approved authorities and are often the first ones that local police stations or hospitals call when they find children who have no one to care for them. Every case breaks our heart, but we do whatever we can to respond. We make sure we do things properly, using a rigorous assessment process to investigate every case before a child is legally registered into our care. Our one aim is to provide a child with a stable, secure start in life.
Sadly there is no shortage of children in need of our care in Kyenjojo.
Many of our children have been orphaned as a result of maternal mortality and many others come to our care because the brutal poverty in the area means their parents simply can’t afford to feed another mouth. If there is no one else to provide for the child, we’ll step in.
FINDING CARING STAFF
Our housemothers and nannies are our heroes. We take great care in the way we choose staff.
It’s vital our children have the consistency of carers who they can develop a lifelong bond with. We look for loving Christians who are called to commit their lives to caring for these beautiful children.
We help our children to grow up healthy and happy.
Medical care comes as standard alongside a healthy and nutritious diet tailored for each child in our care. Not many children in this region have toys or books, but we have plenty at the Fountain of Peace Children’s Foundation. From day one we read to our children and encourage them to play and explore the world around them. As a project founded on Christian beliefs, we also pray with and for our children and encourage them to explore faith for themselves.
PREPARING CHILDREN FOR THE FUTURE
Our complete approach to child development ensures our children are healthy in mind, body, spirit and soul.
Above all else, we provide an environment where children feel safe and loved.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Every pound you give builds a bright future for our children.
