Mama Jane Foundation wants to offer children a future

Each of our team had an intensive time with Mama Jane in Uganda about 20 years ago. The house and the children never let go of us. With our foundation we can contribute continuously, from the Netherlands, to the necessary care Mama Jane supplies. Children are the future. If they grow up in a stable safe home and have acces to education, it will enlarge their chances in life. We support them with all our hearts.

With our support:

Mama Jane Children Care Center (CCC) provides care for vulnerable children in the orphanage and in families outside the orphanage. A stable income is necessary to secure this very essential care.

Mama Jane's staff and board have good plans to increase income and reduce costs. They start projects and the foundation helps to collect the money for them.

Our home is in Jinja!

Mama Jane's property is located in the center of Jinja, Uganda's 2nd largest city. Uganda is about 6 times the Netherlands and is also called the pearl of Africa, lying on the equator and on the large Lake Victoria. Uganda is beautifully green, with thousands of species of birds, many game parks and pieces of tropical rainforest. In addition to this overwhelming nature, Uganda is the land of colorful markets and villages, and a friendly population. A miracle, if you consider the history of the country; with notorious dictators and until 2010 a civil war in Northern Uganda. Thousands of children were kidnapped and used as soldiers by Lords Resistance Army. A refugee flow of more than a million people started. Fortunately, Uganda is now relatively stable and safe to travel in. Everywhere you look, houses, businesses and roads are under construction. Want to know more about the country?

Jinja is at the source of the Nile. About 300,000 people live there. The city is vast and has many poor suburbs. Jinja town seems to be a quiet, friendly town, with a large number of old Asian buildings and a main street with mainly low-rise buildings. Just behind the main street is Gabula Road, where Mama Jane is located.
