Where we are

Uganda is an east-african country. Butiiti is in the west of Uganda near the city Fort Portal. We work in four administrative parishes of the town-council of Butiiti. That is, Butiiti, Mukunyu, Busanza and Rubona-Kakindo, in the Kyenjojo district of Uganda. Within the 4 parishes there are 27 villages.

The area has a population of 20,625 people: 9,488 males, 11,137 females. The total number of children below 18 years is 14,449.


Global data is alarming:

  • 84 million people have been infected world-wide with HIV/AIDS and
  • 40 million have died of AIDS-related illness.

  • In Uganda, 1.4 million people are affected by HIV/AIDS (3 % of the population),
  • 54,000 new infected persons each year, 17,000 deaths with the tragic consequence of
  • about 800,000 orphans annually and about 15,000 children are born with infection from HIV.

It is indispensable and urgent to develop strategies to reduce the AIDS epidemic. The poverty of the people (more than 25% survives with less than one US dollar a day) is one of the main factors triggering this plague. Young women and even girls in order to survive, adapt unhealthy sexual behaviors by exposing themselves to infection. Poverty creates despair, so individuals and groups are involved in illegal activities and behaviors that cause social disorder and death. Children do not go to school because their parents cannot pay school fees.

In fact in Uganda more than 30% of the population is illiterate and without any training. This hampers the development of a country in the current world which is driven by rapidly evolving technology.


Improve the life of people in poor communities in the town-council of Butiiti in particular, and in Kyenjojo district in general with particular attention to the most vulnerable people such as disabled, orphans, women in distress, victims of serious diseases such as HIV /AIDS.

  • To eliminate diseases such as HIV / AIDS through basic knowledge and the consciousness of respect which any human being deserves.

This will be done through collaboration with Kyenjojo District Authorities and with other national and international agencies and organizations that can provide these services.

We want to help the voiceless and poor individuals to also have access to peace and justice services.

Sponsorship for a child

The children are directly affected in the following ways:

  • Some have no shelter and nothing to eat or wear,
  • often live too far from a school,
  • many adults do not consider schooling necessary because they have never attended school themselves,
  • many children have to work in the fields to earn a living or to pay school fees,
  • when the children get sick, they can’t go to the hospital. 

Preventing illnesses for better health, especially HIV / AIDS prevention activities
  • Meetings on health and prevention of HIV / AIDS in the Church, Mosque, School and Villages.
  • Sports activities (football, basketball, volleyball, etc.)
  • Cultural activities (music, dance, theater) to develop self-expression and interaction between groups
  • Interreligious dialogue meetings

  • Educate groups and families on credit and savings plans and conduct seminars to optimize livestock farming methods.
  • Seminars for management of small business activities.
  • Protection of the environment through afforestation
  • Periodic monitoring and evaluation of projects / activities to determine effectiveness and efficiency. 

Access to training activities
  •  Identifying vulnerable orphans and children who need basic learning and more help than others. This will be done in conjunction with local government councils, with village leaders, etc.
  • Supporting students with the necessary school materials and suitable equipment
  • Establishing scholarships to help children with skill and intelligence who do not have enough money to continue their schooling until graduation. 


We have launched several projects. Some are already finished, many ongoing and some are still in planning. You can get an overview of our activities and progress on ongoing projects by clicking on the “News Blog” link. These are our latest news.

We are supporting one of our sponsored children's families to complete a small shop where they will sell vegetables they have grown themselves.
We have selected a family of one of our sponsored children who urgently needs a new home. Together with the ENGONZI Förderverein e.V., we have therefore decided to finance the construction of a new house

During the Advent season from the beginning of November 2023 until the end of the year, we have launched the "Donate a light in Butiiti" fundraising campaign together with ENGONZI FÖRDERVEREIN e.V. In most of the homes of our school sponsored children, there is usually no proper light after sunset. The families use paraffin lamps to provide a little light.
