Blessings Of Joy
Welcome to Blessings Of Joy, where we believe that every child deserves to have a better future. Through education, Blessings Of Joy is changing the lives of poor African children one at a time. Education is a very important tool in all aspects of life. In 2009 over 1200,000 children were orphaned by HIV/AIDS in Uganda, with the majority living in villages where there is no easy access to health, education, good nutrition, and safe housing.
In 2006, Blessings Of Joy opened its doors to the poor children mostly those orphaned by HIV/AIDS, at Mweruka Village, Kyanamukaaka Sub-County, Masaka district. Since then an orphanage institution, Mweruka Junior School was started with a population of 200 orphans getting education, and proper nutritional care. A special program that teaches important trade skills such as tailoring and design, carpentry, house construction has helped the poor youth of Masaka to get the tools and ideas they need to fight poverty and make good decisions.
