About Us

Welcome to Jaaja Barb’s Home of Angels

Mission Statement:
To minister to the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of orphaned children, especially those afflicted by HIV/AIDS.  Nurturing them to grow in wisdom, in stature and in favor with God and mankind (Luke 2:52)

Faith Statement:
"Whoever welcomes this child in my name welcomes me" Jesus

We are pleased to announce that our Charity, Jaaja's Home of Angels Society (The "Charity") has been duly registered with the Canada Revenue Agency as a Charitable Organization.  The Charity's Business Number is 84713 3907 RR0001.

Our Home of Angels is located in Mpumudde, situated 87 km NE of the capital city of Kampala and 4.8 km NW of Jinja on Lake Victoria.  The poverty level is high in Mpumudde with the majority of people living in mud huts with little or no income.  What I observe here is "Babies taking care of Babies".  HIV/AIDS has devastated the normal adult parent population, and with the senior male population (over 45 years old) being at just 7%, the critical role of raising children is left to widows and grandmothers.

Home of Angels was established in 2009.  Using local commitment, resources and talent, accompanied with western funding and mentorship, the project is succeeding in elevating the local population to getting involved in supporting their own community's development.  Ultimately, the success will be "teaching a man to fish".

Here we are currently in 2020 and have been very blessed to have been able to accomplish so much more than we ever imagined.  Because of prayer and our wonderful donors, we have built a complete housing compound, a nursery school and also in the process of building a primary school.  Both compounds are enclosed with an 8' concrete wall for protection.  We have over 400 goats that are continually multiplying and being sold off to as far as Saudi Arabia.  Our gardens are flourishing with food for our home and also to share with the hungry.
