Guiding Light Orphans

Strengthening Child Health and Reducing Infant Mortality Rates

creating sustainable change

If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Not only do we provide direct aid, but we also build on-going, community-owned systems that maintain the changes. We strive to improve and empower the lives of children in Uganda.

MEDICAL CAMPS

GLO holds medical camps approximately twice a year in local villages of the Masindi district. The camps focus on education, disease prevention and treatment, and maternal, newborn, and child health and wellness services.

VILLAGE HELP TEAM (VHTs)

GLO’s strategy in managing disease outbreak is to train our Village Health Teams on a regular basis on how to effectively seek out patients and get them proper care. ​

EPILEPSY INTERVENTION

Knowledge about the epilepsy epidemic is Uganda is very limited and people are very fearful of it. GLO has decided to raise awareness and understanding of epilepsy to improve acceptability, treatment, and services for patients, families, and caregivers.

GLO HEALTH CLINIC

Guiding Light Orphans was generously donated two rooms in the local church in Nyantonzi that have been renovated into our first medical clinic. It will provide basic services to anyone living within the area that we serve.
