Welcome to Jolly Nyeko Foundation Canada
We are a 100% volunteer organization that exists to serve the needs of children at risk in Uganda. The needs that we address are focused around health, personal security, education, and poverty.
Uganda has a population of 32 million people with more children than adults. Many children are “at risk” of being abused, abducted, orphaned, or living in severe poverty with little hope for a better future. These are the children that we focus on. We have had first hand experience in seeing the overwhelming need, and have witnessed how a small amount of money can go a long way in making a positive difference in their lives.
The projects that we undertake are carried out through Action For Children, a Ugandan non-governmental organization serving the poorest of the poor. They vary from child sponsorship and supporting a school, to establishing reliable transportation for the staff to more easily access the children at risk ... and more.
We invite you to browse through this site to learn more about our work and trust that you will be drawn to help us. If you have any comments or questions please contact us.
Blessings to all,
J. Leanne Stokes
