Jaaja Barb’s Home of Angels is a non-profit organization partnering with the Kuwasha International Development Society in Canada and a registered Community Based Organization (CBO) in Jinja, Uganda, East Africa.  Certificate of registration is No. 768, issued by the Jinja District Local Government.

We were established 7 years ago by Barb Giraud residing in Canada and Edwin Lufafa, in Jinja, Uganda.  Barb and Edwin have built this home solely to house orphans who are in desperate need.  These vulnerable children are alone, some the living with HIV/AIDS and in acute poverty and it is our intention to house, educate and protect them.  We had no other way than by baking banana bread to accomplish this task.  To date we have baked approximately 11,000 loaves and with the word spreading and donors assistance, we are able to continue work on the completion of both the children's compound and the farm compound.

Our goal for the farming project will be 1000 layer chickens and 2 goats for milk.  Protein is very necessary for these children with their medical issues.  We have also planted a large passion fruit garden, along with maize, kale, spinach, eggplant, tomatoes and many other local vegetables.

We are now in our 7th year and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  We are currently housing 26 children but after recently receiving a large donation to finish the 2nd children's home, we realized that the wheel is continuing to turn.  We will slowly bring in more kids until we reach our maximum.  Our biggest challenge will be to find the operating funds to meet the monthly costs but with God's help, anything is possible.  

Jaaja Barb’s Home of Angels is located in Mpumudde, north of Jinja Town, approximately 87 km from the capital city of Kampala.  We are located in a lush area, surrounded by peace, tranquility and a place where children can find comfort.
