What are we fundraising for?

The Atai Orphanage Fund is a registered 501(c)(3) charity with a mission to provide food, clothing, education, permanent housing, and vital health services to the Orphans of the Teso District of Northern Uganda. The organization is operated by unpaid volunteers and all proceeds from any fundraiser is used to meet the needs of the children. Thanks to the generous support from friends of Atai, we are now housing 54 children in two houses and several huts within Atai Village. We are also feeding more than 100 – 150 children from neighboring villages two meals a day using food grown on our farm land!
