Help Make A Change

Providing support so children
can learn and thrive.

Hearth to Hearth Ministries, Inc. is an interdenominational Christian ministry that sponsors a Children’s Center and Primary School for orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya and an Educational Project in Uganda.

The homes have cared for over 1,000 children since 2001 when Hearth to Hearth Ministries was established in response to the AIDS epidemic and the resulting thousands of children who were left orphans. The organization is governed by a 12 member Board of Directors who work closely with the administrators to ensure the children are well cared for and provided the best education and opportunities possible.

Hope for Children Center

Hope for Children Center is located in Kenya near Lake Victoria and is home to over 100 children. Our campus has everything needed to help the children succeed: preschool and primary schools, a farm with animals and produce, dormitories, an athletic field, and clean water.

Uganda Education Project

In Masaka, Uganda, Hearth to Hearth supports a small group of children in their educational pursuits. Some are in post secondary vocational programs such as med tech and hotel management and some are in primary or secondary school. Each student boards at their school during the school semester, then spends holidays with their relatives.  Our Director, John Sekeggya, oversees the education progress, health needs, transportation issues, and counseling concerns of the students.  The sponsorship of the donors of Hearth to Hearth Ministries provides these children an education which gives them hope for a productive successful life in the years to come.

Widows Co-op

The Widows Co-op near Hope for Children Center is made up of 25 widows ranging in age from 35 to 85, each caring for their orphaned children, grandchildren, great grandchildren or community children. The co-op provides income as well as invaluable emotional support to its members. The business of the co-op is renting tents and chairs for funerals, weddings and special events. Their next goal is to add catering to their business. The income they earn enables them to send the children in their care to school.

Hearth to Hearth is a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. It is an all-volunteer organization and 97% of funds donated go directly to support the programs.
