Kids of Uganda is a Sweden based NGO focused on supporting exposed children in Uganda. We run an orphanage in Bubulo, a village in Southeastern Uganda, and support foster families. Currently, we have eight children living in the orphanage and support another 55 children through our foster families. We offer field studies and internships for students and others. Additionally, we create employment in the local area and are constantly touring Scandinavia to tell the story of modern Africa. The organisation was founded in 2012 by Cecilia Khouma (then named Kleimert) from Säffle, Sweden, and is now run from Sweden by a board consisting of seven friends.
With responsibility and sustainability first in mind, we invest in our children and families, enabling them to build their future and become healthy and sound grown-ups.
