Who We Are
We are Aid4Uganda, a non-profit charity designed to provide food, medicine, beds and shelter to orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda. In 2010, Shane Falconer first visited Uganda on a volunteer program and discovered Ttega Child Development Centre, a small school with limited resources. With very generous support from friends and family in Australia, Shane was able to build classrooms and an orphanage that now sleeps over 20 children at Ttega.
Since the completion of Ttega’s orphanage in 2012, Shane and his wife Katherine have been working to build a new orphanage, called Mercy Home, for the needy children at Way Side Primary School, located just a few miles from Ttega. Since 2012, Aid4Uganda has purchased land next to Way Side, laid foundations for a three-story orphanage, and nearly completed the entire ground floor. Once completed, the ground floor alone will be enough to sleep around 70 children.
At Aid4Uganda, we believe in the empowerment of the common person to make a difference in the lives of children half a world away. It is not how much you contribute, but THAT you contribute, that matters. Our organization is unique in that 100% of all funds raised go to the projects on the ground. We are confident that with your support, we can achieve our vision of expanding the number of orphanages we support and ensure that as many of Uganda’s children as possible have the opportunities they, and all children, deserve.
