Constructing an orphanage to house and school orphaned children in Kabale, Western Uganda.
Kigezi Orphan Children’s Charity (KOCC) was formed in 2014. The orphanage provided shelter for these abandoned children, but the dwelling was sparse and unhygienic. The children regularly battled with infections and disease due to the unsanitary conditions. In 2017, the building’s owner gave the founder of the orphanage an eviction notice.
Polio and Children in Need Charity(PACINC) then took on the initiative to move these children and house other abandoned kids in a new boarding home. The project involves construction of two dormitories for 84 children, bathroom and toilet facilities, a security fence all around the campus and a school for over 200 children. Staff will be hired to educate and take care of these children.
Currently, Polio and Children in Need Charity has been successful in securing sufficient land in western Uganda for the new site where construction for an orphanage and school has already begun.
