Friends of The Nations – FoTN, Lira based community organization, was formed in April 2016 by members of Lira Central Division community. These community members approached a range of community workers, teachers, students and other concerned people to pursue support for the project’s aims. From these initial meetings FoTN was formed and incorporated as a community fared organization.
FoTN is governed by a volunteer management committee. The committee is made up of representatives from the various sub counties and divisions community, teachers and community workers and other interested people.
Friends of the Nations – FoTN demonstrates the love of Jesus Christ by giving hope to Ugandan orphans, street kids and other children affected by poverty and AIDS.
We do this through our three major programs; education, healthcare and empowerment (livelihood) to enable them a better future.
We aim majorly supporting the education, health and empowerment of disadvantaged children in Northern Uganda. Due to a devastating civil war that lasted for almost two decades leaving basic services in Northern Uganda harshly degraded, also leaving several street kids and orphans who, in addition to losing their parents, have little chance to get an education, acquire better health or even shelter themselves or their little siblings.
Lira Central Division elected representatives and local government officials have solicited the support of FoTN and its Chairperson Anthony Nata in building the Children’s home.
We are seeking public support for the project and donations to fund the building of the children’s home. The funds will be managed by FoTN. All financial reports will be available to donors and FoTN members.
FoTN Uganda believes in creation of a society with equal education rights for both able and unable children of Northern Uganda. We aim at helping the vulnerable Uganda orphans, street children of Northern Uganda, Widows and Uganda disabled children have a better life.
