Malayaka House Service Trip

Malayaka House Service Trip

What is the Malayaka House? The Malayaka House is an orphanage in Entebbe, Uganda. It was established in 2005 by Vermonter Robert Fleming with the rescue of one child, a girl named Malayaka. Since then, the organization has grown as supporters found more Ugandan children in desperate need of medical attention, proper nutrition and a place to call home. Now, more than 40 children live at Malayaka House, go to school, and have opportunities for vocational training. Five women, known as "Aunties," run Malayaka House. Their work includes raising the children and managing several micro-businesses in farming, crafts and food production. Too often, the reality in Uganda has been that children are victims of poverty and disease. The vision of Malayaka House is to give these kids a future, and help them to develop skills to support themselves and be productive members of Ugandan society.
