Working with Us
This Life Foundation is a non-governmental, non-For-Profit body founded to support child-headed families, women and youth in Northern and North-Eastern Uganda. The foundation provides direct support to disadvantaged children, particularly orphaned children who lost their parents to the war in Northern Uganda as a result of abduction or killed by the Lord Resistance Army led by Joseph Kony. Our support ranges from helping a child stay in school through child sponsorship, providing psychosocial support to children exposed to traumatic events, provision of scholastic materials, providing access to medical services and ensuring children do not go hungry.
The Foundation also seeks to support, mentor and engage young people in Australia as development partners in the development of Africa; to ensure the continent is a better place for children.
