Amatsiko - Bringing Hope

Helping Orphans and Vulnerable People Through Empowerment 

Amatsiko is a registered community based organization (CBO) operating in South- Western Uganda, Kabale District, Kigezi region. The idea for the project was initially conceived in 2005 by Mr. Alex Atuheire, the project director, after he saw the detrimental effects that being orphaned or vulnerable had on the future of the community's children.     

Alex has been helping vulnerable children around the Lake Bunyonyi region for several years and is always keen to develop new and improved ways to help them further. Amatsiko was officially registered as a CBO at the start of 2011.

We would like to offer our immense gratitude to all of those who have contributed and helped improved the lives of our children. Special thanks go to the Bible Study Group from Australia, donors from the UK and all those who have contributed to the project's efforts so far.

Amatsiko; HOPE. Helping Orphans and vulnerable People through Empowerment.
