COVID-19 and Locust Plague Update:

Per the Ugandan government’s orders, Otino Waa and our CBC partner schools have closed and students are returning to their villages. Our highest priority is food security and medical care for each child. We are mobilizing our staff and they will be visiting the children weekly to bring food and assess how they are doing. The Medical and Dental Clinic is open 24/7 and we have nurses solely dedicated to providing medical care to our children in their villages. Costs are rising rapidly and will continue to rise as COVID-19 and locust impact more and more of Uganda and East Africa.

Our children are more vulnerable now then ever, we are committed to doing all we can to protect them, BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP! Click here to GIVE.

What We Do

Medical and Dental Clinic

The Medical and Dental Clinic at Otino Waa Children's Village serves hundreds of individuals in northern Uganda. Without the clinic, many of these people would not receive the care they need.


The Need

This video takes you deep into the village to meet some of the vulnerable children on the waiting list to enter Otino Waa. There are between 500-1,000 children in the surrounding area that qualify for admission and the need is very great. The only thing keeping Otino Waa from growing is lack of funding.

This video shares the journey of two orphans in Uganda. When we first met them in 2012, they were living in the bush with their elderly grandmother. In 2013, space at Otino Waa Children's Village opened up. See what their life is like in 2014.
