Empowering vulnerable children and youth

History of our development project

After a meeting between a Ugandan pastor and the Foundation Director of the Stiftung Gott hilft in 1995, the vision to set up an institution for AIDS orphans in Uganda was born.

Since 1999, three socio-educational foster families and a family encouragement program have been set up in Kampala, the capital of the country. After the end of the civil war in the north in 2008, we opened a home in Lira. The home was soon followed by the establishment of another family encouragement program.

In 2012, GHU entered a phase of consolidation, which was completed in 2018 when the executive responsibility was transferred to an African field manager.
