Ndikyo Farm and Housing Project

Ndikyo Farm & Housing Project

Ndikyo translated from the Lumasaba language of the bagisu people from Eastern Uganda is "I am that… the root". It is a call that speaks to the individual in need to rise up and initiate change from within, to be the root of one’s own development. To lay the foundation upon which others can build upon, so that they can become self-reliant. That is the vision of the Ndikyo Project.

As is common with any natural disaster, children usually face the brunt of misfortune at the death of one or both parents, disruption of their education, hunger and poverty at the loss of livelihoods. Reports from the Landslide areas indicate that a vast number of children were affected, most of whom have been sent to relatives or host families who can hardly afford to take care of them, while others have ended up on the streets trying to fend for themselves. With only 2 Orphanages in Mbale( Eastern Uganda ) that cater to babies below 5 years, mid-aged children and youth have been left to fend for themselves.
