Upendo Orphanage, which means "LOVE," is a sanctuary for children aged between 1 month and 14 years who have either lost both parents or been tragically abandoned. These children often arrive at Upendo without access to basic necessities such as food, shelter, and clothing. The orphanage is dedicated to ensuring that each child receives adequate nutrition, proper clothing, and healthcare, but most importantly, Upendo provides them with love and hope for a better future.

The Role of Volunteers:

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Upendo Orphanage. They come from all corners of the globe, bringing with them diverse skills, experiences, and, most importantly, a profound desire to make a difference in the lives of these children.
