Our Rescue Units

K.I.D.S. in Uganda operates six Orphan Rescue Units located throughout Uganda, Africa! These facilities are not your “traditional” orphanage. Our sponsored kids do not stay at the units; rather, in order to keep close ties with their individual villages and tribal cultures, we¬†provide a nurturing place where orphans can gather on weekends to connect with their Unit Facilitators (typically a husband and wife team) who are trained in working with all manner of physical, emotional and spiritual issues common to orphaned children. There, they spend time sharing a meal, playing, hearing and participating in various Bible stories, while also having an opportunity to share home life challenges and difficulties. Each Rescue Unit is different, each have different needs……..just as each child and each trauma many face are different. Click on the Rescue Units below for more information about each one…

Each child sponsored through our Orphan Sponsorship Program is provided school fees, school uniforms and supplies. Additionally, (and all too often) our orphan’s are in need of food, various medication(s), clothing, shelter or other basic life needs. These are addressed with each child on a monthly basis and are provided on a “most critical need” basis, depending on available resources. There are NO “overhead or administrative costs” levied against the sponsorship funding. EVERY penny raised via orphan sponsorship (or, for that matter, financial gifts given for designated projects in Uganda benefiting our children) goes to Uganda. Period!
