Bridge for Children's Village
History of Our Orphanages
Bridge for Peace Children' Village began in 2012 in Kasese, Uganda to provide a home for the most vulnerable children orphaned in infancy. Supported by worldwide donors convinced by Bridge for Peace's successful record in charitable development projects, B4P has constructed three homes housing over thirty-five children.
In 2013, B4PCV began to realize the hope of becoming self-sustaining with the development of twenty acres of land as a farm to supply bananas, beans, corn, tomatoes, and other foodstuffs for the children and staff. In 2016, to supply firewood for cooking, B4P Australia donated a forest of eucalyptus trees, a renewable resource.
B4P broke ground in 2016 for the Bridge for Peace International Primary School. Bordering on the B4PCV, the two story brick school is under construction. One hundred children from the B4PCV and fifty boarding students will be educated in the facility.
Our long-term plan for the site includes eight homes for children and a playground. Each home will provide space for twelve children and two staff members. Other buildings planned include a clinic, guest house, administration building, and a community center. All construction is overseen by the B4P Uganda Advisory Board utilizing local builders. Fundraising for the school continues.
The B4PCV administrator, Mr. Peter Baluku, received a B4P nursing college scholarship and graduated with honors. His wife, Stella, received a B4P scholarship to business school and is now supervisor of the home. Other caretakers on premises include six housemothers, two volunteers, and a security guard.
B4P Farm grows six hundred fifty banana trees. Six acres are devoted to corn for the children's porridge. Other crops include soybeans and tomatoes. A storage facility secures the harvest until it is processed on site and trucked to the B4PCV.
Bridge for Peace Children's Village
Bridge for Peace rescues children in the Kasese, Uganda area who have been orphaned by providing a partially self-sustaining home and farm. The Bridge for Peace Children's Village empowers Ugandans and in turn lessens their dependence on international assistance and provides a safety net for many vulnerable children. B4PCV began as a shared idea and will continue as a shared responsibility. Impact a generation through your generosity.
