Trinity Children's Hope Ministries
- Eastern Uganda
Who we are
Trinity children's hope ministries (TRICH MINISTRIES) is a pivot of community development and was founded in 2011 by Ray Solomon on the principle of achieving transformation through self help initiatives, relief, giving all necessary assistance to orphans an needy children, elderly, widows, teenage mother and the youths in the community.
TRICH ministries is a nonprofit , charity community organization which supports and gives relief to disadvantaged children, elderly, widows, teenage mothers and the youths in Uganda.
TRICH is a fully registered charity by the government of Uganda
TRICH way of dealing with the beneficiaries differs from some other organizations in that we care for orphans and vulnerable children within their family setting and within their villages as opposed to orphanages. Orphans are typically adopted by relatives, such that TRICH helps with the support of these orphans within their original adoption. Within this very approach of care, TRICH also supports elderly people, widows and teenage mothers many of who care for the orphans supported by TRICH. This approach currently has over 200 children BUT we have a total of 35 children who are typically badly off with totally no relative to where we can send them to; so we are proposing to set up a uniform home (foster) to take care of these miserable boys and girls because every child a has a right to all benefits as a child and a child never chooses where to be born.
