A civil war, disease and extreme poverty have devastated families in Uganda with broad, sweeping strokes. Approximately 2.2 million children have lost one or both of their parents and are struggling to survive. Often these children are left to fend for themselves and end up living on the streets. Sometimes they are taken in by aunts or grandmothers, who have few resources themselves. The lucky ones find their way to an orphanage or boarding school.
Change the Truth is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of these children, specifically those at St. Mary Kevin Orphanage Motherhood in the small town of Kajjansi.
