Orphans will soon be moved to BiZoHa - from Muhokya, Kahendero (fishing village on Lake George), and Kasese (provincial capital), however the just completed hostel will shelter a maximum of 16 orphans but plans are underway to put in place a school to offer a balanced education to young people from nursery to Primary classes, this dream will come to reality upon construction of classrooms on this property so that children of Muhokya, Kahendero and the entire region gets served.

The director of BiZoHa - Bwambale M Robert - was orphaned himself at the age of five.

He is the author of the book, “Orphans of Rwenzori - a Humanist Perspective. ”

 


BiZoHa Orphanage will be economically self-sufficient in 1 year. This goal will be achieved by selling corn, beans, cassava, peanuts, and lettuce grown on its farm, and by selling drinks at a roadside stand, on the adjacent well-traveled road.
