The orphanage currently houses 42 children aged 4 to 18 years old. The children are from diverse backgrounds, are fully cared for, and attend an excellent local school. They all have sadly had tragic beginnings to their lives. Most are healthy but some have long term health issues that are cared for. The home is located on 3 acres of fenced and secured land in Nawantale-Bwasi community, roughly 120 km north of Jinja. The facilities include: boys dorm, girls (house) dorm, a kitchen/dining hall/church building, solar electric lights, chlorinated well drinking water, latrines, playground, and gardens.
The home is 100% funded and operated by partnership with the Mission Servants Ministry (MSM).
HISTORY: Pastor Isabirye Paulous and his team at SOHAC were called to serve the people and children in Nawantale. In 2010 the first orphans were brought in and used rented facilities and by 2013 the doors were opened to 46 needy children.
In February, 2013, MSM visited the home in Nawantale and prayerfully agreed to take an active role in partnership with the SOHAC team, providing funding, communication, prayer, and operational advice. School fees, supplies, clothing, and shoes were funded initially and in 2014 land was purchased, facilities build, and the children moved to their permanent home.
Pastor Paul….”I am the Director of stream of hope for African child Uganda, a faith-based ministry dedicated to offer hope to the multitude of poor and orphan-hood generation . We provide critical support services for families, orphans, youth and widows. Some of our programs include: Stream care (home visitation and hospital ministry), Compassion Care (helping families with urgent needs i.e. bereavement support), Community health and wellness education and clinics, Lunch hour Bible fellowships, Christian leadership and discipleship training, vocational training and skill development and income generating projects aimed at helping families and organizations to be self-sustaining. In short we offer a diverse range of services aimed at helping to build healthy and strong communities. I am also the Senior Pastor for Stream of hope Church located in Nawantale in Kamuli District. We have decided that teaching the Gospel without demonstrating the Gospel is not enough. Good preaching; good doctrine; being good people is not enough.”
HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS: Funding 100% of the living, clothing, health, administration, and education costs of the children and orphanage.
