Description
HISTORY OF THE ORGANISATION

Up Rise Children’s Charity was founded in 2012 by Ronney Ssemanda, after becoming increasingly concerned with the lack of education for children in his local area of Kampala. In particular, he wanted to ensure that orphans, street kids and children from single parent families were not excluded from primary education because of their disadvantaged backgrounds.

So in February 2012, Ronney approached the Harvest Christian Church to request the use of their building to house the orphans from his community. He then enlisted the help of Sylvia to start teaching the children, as well as engaging them in other social activities such as music, singing etc. What started with 5 students, has quickly grown to 30….such is the demand from his local community.

The charity was launched on the back of donations from Ronney’s circle of friends. However, as the demand for food, clothing and teaching materials has markedly risen since Up Rise’s inception the charity now needs a new wave of donations to ensure it continues offering this critical lifeline to these marginalized children.
