Bula Children's Home

BULA Children's Home is an officially registered Ugandan NGO that aims to promote childhood development by focusing on children's rights, educational opportunities, and sensitivity to each child's unique background.  The home aims to safeguard the children from abuse and neglect, and provide a safe and secure environment for them to grow and flourish.

The Home cares for 27 orphaned and vulnerable children, ranging in ages from 9 to 18 years old. The Home, located in Kampala, was established in early 2009.

The home first aims to support these children in their basic needs and future success and additionally strives to further promote their well being through counseling and support.  The children are also encouraged to express themselves as individuals, and are encouraged to pursue interests such as dance, music and art. 

The children are deeply invested in their studies, many of them earning top placements in their classes.  Several of the children have earned positions of standing within their schools.

ICO is supporting the home financially, and raising money for the construction of a new facility.   We will also be working with members of the local community to create operations that will generate income for the home, with the goal that it will one day be self-sustaining.  Through the construction of a new home and these operations we also hope to involve the children so that they learn the principles of small business operation, and build positive self-identities as contributing members of their community.  It is our goal to assist the children in becoming the emerging leaders of their community.

Your support is greatly appreciated, and as with all of ICO's initiatives, 100% of your donation will go directly to the home!

The Timberline and Carihi International Co-op class just returned back from their work placement trip to Nepal. A group of 23 students and chaperones spent their spring break experiencing the culture and adventures the small country had to offer. The class worked with Foundation on the Irrigation Initiative, and managed to raise enough money to fund 1.5 kilometers of the irrigation canal. This effort helped to aid thousands of farming families in the remote village of Lawachowk that could not have funded this project on their own.
