History of Amani Baby Cottage
Amani Baby Cottage was established in 2003 to provide care for orphaned and abandoned children. ABC is located in Jinja, Uganda near the shores of Lake Victoria.
We can house up to 60 children, ages birth to 5 years. Children are referred to us through the local authorities and the social welfare system. Many are orphaned when their parents die due to AIDS, birth complications, or other factors. Some are abandoned in the hospital after birth. Others are found abandoned at taxi stops, in latrines, or on the street. Our goal is that each one of them will find a place with a loving Christian family. To date, we have had over 400 children that have been cared for in our home.
Amani Baby Cottage employs about forty-five Ugandan workers to care for our children, and also enjoys the assistance of a number of volunteers from around the world.
We operate under the covering of Total Family Outreach, a non-profit US corporation. Amani Baby Cottage operates by faith in a loving, heavenly Father who has promised to take up the cause of the orphan.
