The Milele Foundation is one of the Ugandan charities that support women  in Uganda,  vulnerable children through child sponsorships and handicapped children . We are changing the lives of Uganda’s vulnerable  children  with your help by sponsoring their education, providing meals, clothing, books, and medical assistance, Handicapped children through our outreaches and workshops, and vulnerable women through the women empowerment programs we run.

In the eyes of a Ugandan child, you can be a hero. Sponsorship has a long-term impact on the lives of orphans and vulnerable Uganda children, their families, and their communities. Give a meaningful gift that will change the lives and futures of children in Uganda.

Your love will give a child of Uganda  hope that will last a lifetime as you exchange letters, send photos, and offer encouragement in Jesus’ name. Today is the last day to sponsor a child in Uganda!

Sponsor a child today!

In Uganda, child sponsorship is the most cost-effective way to break the poverty cycle. It not only meets a child’s immediate physical needs, but it also boosts his or her self-esteem.


Milele Foundation Uganda has never given up on the habit of extending a hand of help to vulnerable children in Uganda who do not have access to education .

As a Uganda charity organization we believe that Education is the only difference between life and death since lack of education in Uganda to the vulnerable children means increased criminal cases, increased HIV/AIDS rates, increased poverty and increased death. However , we  still believe that there is still hope for vulnerable  children to get back to school and make their dreams come true.

One of the ways we find it better , is  to equip orphaned and vulnerable  children with education so that they can liberate themselves. “Unless charity helps the recipient become independent of it, charity is injurious.”

As a Uganda Charity  organization we  have  been helping vulnerable children become independent of charity since its establishment in 2017.

We look forward to educating as many orphans as possible, we can’t wait to see you join us achieve our goal by sponsoring a CHILD with us.

Vulnerable Women Empowerment in Uganda.

For the past years, the message to empower women has been spreading as fast as wild fire. Empowering women in Uganda , is the language that everybody is saying, however, the question remains “who is responsible for putting the message into practice?

Milele Foundation Uganda has  build a culture of women empowering their communities. This is because we believe that if you want to count sand you start with one beneath your feet. We believe that the process of women empowerment is made easier only if we empower women to empower the communities in which they live and work from. Women understand their fellows’ problems faster than men. We as  a charity organization we have identified ways in which we can help women empower their communities.

Below are some of the ways in which women can empower their communities.

  • Women can empower their communities through mentorship. They can help become role models to the young generation within their communities. Women are associated with positive traits like compassion, love, care, mercy, etc. all of which are fundamental in community empowerment and over the years we have mentored women under the Milele School of Community program . They are mentoring fell women through workshops.
  • Leading by example. Empowered Women can make good leaders in their Uganda’s  communities. We run a leadership training which  provides room for leadership of women at every in their communities. This is a step in women empowerment since it creates room for women to exercise their exemplary leadership character and thus empowering communities.
  • Women can empower their communities through shutting negativity. Some cultures in Africa and Uganda in Particular are still locked in awkward beliefs about women. They still believe that women are meant to spend most of their time in the kitchen cooking for their husbands. The only significant method that can be used to address this is if women who have achieved something in their lives to testify openly against such negative beliefs in their societies. They can speak a word of hope to teenage girls who have lost hope at a tender stage hence empowering communities.
  • Formation of cooperatives and circles in communities. Women can help in empowering their communities through formation of savings groups, starting up income generating projects, to mention but a few. By these circles help in community development through financing projects, offering small interest loans, addressing community problems with a collective voice, etc. by doing this, women are empowering their communities and we have encouraged this through the Milele School of Community women.

Milele Foundation Uganda works with grassroots community leaders to build their capacity and knowledge so that they can teach their local community members about health rights among other ways they can empower the communities. We run these training under the Milele School of community program where we run workshops in vulnerable communities.

Supporting  Handicapped Children in Uganda

We  creates opportunities by forming  support groups within our volunteers and the children. Children  are given the tools and resources they need to overcome inequalities:

Opportunities to share experiences, socialize, and learn from and with one another Opportunities to raise community awareness and improve the situation of children with disabilities and their families with in our workshops. We have had previous partnerships where we could  help some get to have corrective surgeries to restore their movements through our partners Victoria Hospitals

What are some of the challenges faced by these Handicapped children in Uganda’s  communities?

Though rights of children with disabilities are acknowledged, some of the provisions to realize them do not meet the standards expected by the CRC and UN CRPD and as ja result, CWDS have suffered a lot. CWDS in Uganda are vulnerable to a number of challenges recognized a follows;

Lack of effective participation

There is limited involvement or not at all of the CWDS and their parents or guardians in formulation, dissemination and implementation of laws and policies related to them, worse to that, even the relevant persons that take care of CWDS are not engaged in those processes. This has as a result led to ignorance and ineffective implementation of the existing laws and policies.

Community misconceptions and stigmas

These remain associated with CWDS, homes of CWDS and this in turn leads to attitudes and behavior of neglect, isolation, abuse and marginalization of CWDS communities and families leading to increased discrimination.

Inferiority complex

CWDS always underestimate themselves before others in the society. They think they do not fit in the society like how other able bodied children do. This is visible in self-pity, loss of self-esteem and non- reporting of human rights abuses against them. The situation is made worse by the service providers and the general public who do not appreciate that to accord CWDS their rights is an obligation.

We have seen testimonies of people with disabilities who have had a great impact on the nation and the world as a whole. We have seen great art, music, and other creative work made by people with disabilities. This is reason enough for grooming more people and support their talent. We still believe that disability is not inability. and this is possible through our workshops and trainings.
