The Mother Ann Nursery kids visited Entebbe zoo and wildlife centre in Uganda last week. This has become a yearly trip to them and it is a rare opportunity for them to leave their home surroundings in Kampala. As you can see from the photos, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their day out.
Our school and consultancy in Kampala, Uganda, has been working in partnership with Mulago Development Group. The group provides education and health care to children in Ghana and Uganda. Their ethos is that no matter anyone’s background, everyone has the same right to a good life.
You can find more detailed information on the group on their facebook page:
A few weeks ago, the group rescued a baby girl who had been abandoned by her parents and left in a pit by a road. She has been doing well whilst being looked after by members of the group . Generous donation from our European supporters have helped to get basic food and clothes for her. At the moment she is receiving treatment for malaria, which is still a very common illness across Africa. Any donations towards her treatment and other basics are much appreciated – please get in touch with the group via their facebook page in regard to this.
Here you can see her sweet face and what an adorable girl she is despite the tough start to life!
If anyone is looking for an inspiring and truthful travel blog to follow, here is the perfect one to read! Written by our friend and fellow volunteer, she provides you with a truthful account on a young lady travelling and volunteering abroad:
Our friend and colleague Ann Rich is currently in Uganda and has successfully fundraised £500 through Gofundme in order to foster 4-month old Faith Grace who is an orphan.We are beyond delighted to receive these news as this means that baby Faith will now be in safe hands and won’t fall into poverty and abuse.
Thank you to every single one who donated!
Our friend and colleague Ann Rich is currently in Uganda, doing a great deal of useful work. Last week she was granted permission to foster an orphan girl called Faith Grace. However, in order to complete all the necessary paperwork for being granted Faith into her care, Ann needs to raise £500.
Please take a moment to read Faith’s story below and donate any amount that you can through the Gofundme-page. Any small amount makes all the difference in order to save this young girl from poverty and life of hardship, even abuse.
This is Faith Grace and she is 4 months old and was left in a box she was abandoned by her Mother who is too poor to look after her and her father is nowhere to be seen.
She is so beautiful but has absolutely nothing. I was able to give her this beautiful little dress donated by Shirley. Thank you so much we are truly grateful I am hoping to foster Faith and bring her back to Mother Anns Baby Home in Kampala Uganda ,
The Courts in Kampala Uganda have granted it but for the paperwork to be sealed and for us to bring Faith Grace back to the Mother Anns Baby Home we need to raise 500 pounds I know its a lot to ask but if 500 people donated one pound this could be possible and this beautiful little girl will be saved from poverty and will have a fantastic life …..
Who knows what will happen to her if I can not foster her i dread to think 😦
My heart is aching right now and the tears are flowing if you could see how beautiful she is im sure you would feel the same as me and donate even just a little …
love and Blessings
Mother Ann Rich

Corruption and dishonest politics in many African countries are causing the poor to become even poorer. Our friend and colleague Ann Rich from the Mother Ann Foundation has been in Uganda for some weeks and she has given us daily reports on how things are over there. Unfortunately, the political situation hasn’t been good over there and it’s affecting people’s lives negatively. Below you can see the headlines of newspapers in the country.
If this doesn’t put things into perspective, then what does?
Our friend and colleague Ann Rich has been in Uganda for a few days and already has done many wonderful things for the local kids. For now, she is in Kampala where she is checking on the progress of her nursery school, as well as our music school and educational consultancy. Thanks to some amazing donors, the kids received some new story books, which they enjoyed listening to.
Our longstanding and dear friend and colleague Ann Rich from the Mother Ann Foundation has just arrived in Uganda. She is planning on spending 10 weeks over there, visiting projects and taking photos of the development of the each project. She is involved in many projects in the country, including her own Mother Ann Nursery School. Ann will take photos of the music school and consultancy and we’ll be showing you updates soon.
Our Educational Consultancy and Music School with the Mother Ann Foundation and Nursery School in Kampala, Uganda, has partnered with a new project that aims to empower and educate women in the local community. The Mulago Development Group aims to empower and educate women through offering them educational initiatives and providing them with chances to earn an income from their handicraft. An additional aim of the group is to educate women on their choice of family planning and when to start a family, as well as how many children to have.
Currently, our premises in Kampala are being used by this group in order for the women to have a space where they can make note books for schools. The new school year in Uganda starts on the 6th of February – hence the ladies are hoping to sell the note books for pupils and teachers in order for the to have new books for the school year.
Anyone interested in learning more about this initiative or in purchasing any note books made by these women, please get in touch with us at: email@example.com..
It is the end of the school year in Uganda, and so all of our wonderful students have graduated and are off on a long Christmas holidays break. They will return in January when the new school year starts. We hope that they all have a wonderful and refreshing break, and thank them for studying with us this school year!
