Mikwano. How is your life?

Promoting the health and well-being of the poor, destitute and orphaned children of Uganda.

Mikwano Children’s Trust Uganda

Mikwano Children’s Trust – Uganda (Mikwano) is a small non-profit making organisation dedicated to providing financial and advisory support promptly, efficiently and directly to the poor, needy and destitute children of Uganda. Mikwano’s mission is to help these children live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives, free from poverty, cruelty, exploitation, disease and hardship.

Founded in 2006 by two British volunteers; James Armson and Rachel Turner, both of whom worked with children’s charities in Uganda. Working with some of the poorest families, they witnessed first hand the enormous and wonderful benefits international aid was capable of achieving on a small, local scale.

The Trust is a non-profit making organisation, relying entirely on the kind and generous donations of supporters, patrons and friends.

Thank you for your interest in Mikwano and for any support you can offer, with your help we can continue to make a real difference to the lives of the children of Uganda.


A letter from afar

“Dear James Armson, My name is Rachael Nasaazi, I am in primary four and a prefect of English language, my best subject is science. I am nine years old.

Thank your for helping me pay my school fees. My father, late Mathias Batanda died in 1997 and in 2006 my mother, late Nantaba Agnes died too. I was also taken to Mengo Hospital and the counsellor told me that I was HIV negative. God loves me. Thank you for loving me too.

Yours faithfully, Rachael Nasaazi”
