BORN LIKE OTHERS
Founded in 2011 by 19 year old Ugandan Robert Twinomujun, Born like Others is a program that cares for the most vulnerable children and youth of Uganda. It’s registered under the name ‘Let’s Serve Christ Ministries’ which is a nonprofit Non-Governmental Organization. Today, Robert runs the organization with a supportive team and Board to ensure the best quality of care for all of the children served by the home.
Born Like Others currently provides for the needs of over 40 children at their full time residential home. This program also provides assistance with school fees, school supplies and clothing for an increasing number of needy children within the community.
Born Like Others takes on a holistic approach in their care for the children which includes housing, food, clothes, education, medical care and socialization to help them become well balanced members of the community. A core belief within their organization is that the holistic care goes beyond providing for our children’s basic needs. They aim to empower their children and build their confidence by helping them discover what they really enjoy, whether that be singing, dancing, or painting . The staff and volunteers support these skills, especially during the holiday programs and outings.
Our continued work is only possible because of the generous giving of our supporters via child sponsorship, fundraising, individual giving. If you would like to sponsor a child at ‘Born Like Others‘ we will provide you with information about children needing support.
