What is the Malayaka House?

    The Malayaka House is an orphanage in Lunyo, Uganda.  It was established in 2005 by Vermonter Robert Fleming with the rescue of one child, a girl named Malayaka.  Since then, the organization grew 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 there.  They go to school and have opportunities for vocational training.  Five women, known as Aunties, run Malayaka House.  Their work includes managing several micro-businesses in farming, crafts and food production as well as raising the children.  

 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.



Who We Are: 

    We are 12 people from Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont – 10 students and 2 faculty/staff.   This May, we’re very excited to be heading to Malayaka House for two weeks!  This trip is part of service learning programs at Champlain, in which students expand their horizons, learn about world cultures, and make meaningful contributions around the globe.  We want to help at Malayaka in any way we can, assisting the Aunties with childcare, in the kitchen or on the farm.    


Fundraising Goal: 


    We’re seeking to raise at least $6,000 and have two goals in mind.  The first $3,000 would be a gift to Malayaka House.   This is Champlain’s fourth service trip to the orphanage, so as an institution, we know first-hand about the work they do. Your contributions make it possible for the children at Malayaka to be fed, clothed, educated and loved.

 In addition, we’re raising money to reduce travel costs, which are considerable for our students, all who are raising their own funds.   The cost per student for the trip is about $2400.  If we raise an additional $3,000, we can bring down those total costs by $500 per student.  Your contribution will help us get there.




Thank You!
