The Help Uganda Trust supports in particular the Children and Young people of St Michael's Children's Home Kampala.  Unlike many charities operating in Africa and Uganda the HUT aims to pay for professional training and/or University places so that each child is capable of fully supporting themselves when they leave the home. It is not just education to sixteen or eighteen and then back on the streets with the need for continued charitable support or alternativily facing the return to extreme poverty.

The HUT pays for the day to day expenses of running the home including food, medicine, utilities and staff. There are approximately 85 resident and a further 20 family placed children. In addition to the on-going expenses the Trust pays for the education of approximately 45 of the young people. Other charities and donors pay for the remaining children's education.

The children come from a range of ethnic (tribal) and religious backgrounds and it is the home's policy that children are treated equally regardless of background. Most are there because of armed conflict or because of the impact of AIDS. At the home great emphasis is made on teaching the children to respect each other’s religious differences and in the equality of the sexes. 

We are particularly proud of our success with young girls and are delighted in the confidence that many have obtained. We are also proud that some of our children have gone on to become doctors, teachers, engineers as well as artists and musicians.

Please support us however you can

Signing up for regular giving is particularly helpful as the children need ongoing support.

Thank you
