Creating Possibilities for
Former Street Children in Uganda
In Support of Ugandan Street Children
Jajja's Kids mission is to create brighter futures and unlimited possibilities for former street children in Uganda. Jajja's Kids program provides a safe and loving home, supportive, nurturing community and access to strong educational and leadership opportunities.
Imagine a child...
dropped off at the gate of a children’s home by parents who are never heard from again,
collecting scraps off the street to support your family at only 7 years old,
having a loving mother who works hard but cannot feed you and your five siblings,
being abandoned by your father, only to find he has another family he is living with.
Join Us for Our Spring Event!
Help support our efforts to provide
educational opportunities for Jajja's Kids!
The afternoon event includes a buffet lunch, live auction with celebrity auctioneer LeGrande Serras, African drumming and dance with musician Jordan Taylor Hill, artwork by Jajja's Kids,
African crafts for sale, and recent photos and updates of the children in Uganda.
Jordan will also lead a dance class for guests who wish to participate!
Tickets are $80, or $40 for students. Reserved tables for 8 are available for $1,000.
Hope to see you there!

Nicholas was 7 and not in school when he joined Jajja's Kids' home. He is now 18 and in 10th grade.
Sponsor Ugandan Homeless Children
When the doors to our home first opened in 2013, the children who arrived were between the ages of 4 and 9. They had slept on sidewalks, searched trash cans for food, earned a few shillings where they could, and spent their days fighting to survive. Today they live together as family, eat three meals a day, attend school regularly, and are cared for by a staff of five.
For them, the daily existence of hunger, abandonment, and life on the street is now a memory.
