Organization and Ministry Partnerships
OTINO WAA CHILDREN'S VILLAGE, Uganda
Otino Waa is an orphanage in Northern Uganda that cares for over 250 orphans. Our approach to orphan ministry goes beyond meeting just the physical needs; we strive to holistically address these children’s educational, psychological, spiritual and emotional needs.
VFC has been partnered with Otino Waa since 2007, sending short term teams over to serve in various ways (construction, education, agriculture, etc). We also send monthly support to children at Otino Waa and support various elements of their ministry through fundraising.
Invest in a kid through PATH Ministries?
There are children all over the world who need a little extra love and encouragement. Of course we as individuals can't help them all, but here is an opportunity for you to tell one little boy or girl in Uganda that they are incredibly valuable! VFC is connected to PATH ministries in Uganda and we encouarge you to get more information about sponsoring a kid through their ministry.
