Our vision is to empower orphaned children through sustainable solutions, shifting the mindset from dependency towards a self sufficient, more hopeful future. 

Your School

Edith's Hope partners with Schools to help alleviate poverty in some of the poorest communities in Uganda. We are excited about partnering, empowering and providing the opportunity for local schools to make a difference to those in need.

Vocational School

Edith’s Hope built and manages a residential vocational school for orphaned children to learn skills that will empower them to earn a wage in order to support themselves and their families.

Child Headed Families project

Child headed families are where one or both parents have died, often from HIV or other impacts of extreme poverty, leaving the eldest child with responsibility for all of their siblings.
