About Greenland Orpahange

The Charity has been helped in its aims by the donations of 3 acres of land for this project by Mr Mushtaq a local Kampala based asian businessman.

The site is in 10Km from Kampala, just off the Kampala - Hoima Road in the waisko District.

The site has ample space to build a mosque, school and orphanage. The estimate cost of this project is in the region of £150,000.

In August 2002 a group including Charity Chair Councillor Paul Rowen, Organiser Rafiq Arien and Mr Terry Mason travelled to Kampala for the Foundation Stone Lying Ceremony.

In this we were assisted by the Mayor of Kampala Mr Ssebaana Kizito who persuaded the Second Deputy Prime Minister of Uganda Mr Moses Ali to perform the ceremony which was attended by about 400 people from the local community.

After this everybody felt that we were making progress.

Work started on the first phase of the Orphanage in January
2003.

This comprises living, washing and cooking facilities for approximately 30 children and their house mothers. We aim to offer accommodation in small family units. Each House Mother being responsable for no more than 5 children. Work has already started on planting crops so that the orphanage can be as self sufficient as possible.
Work on this phase of the project which will cost £40,000 and will be completed by April 2003.
