Hi, my name is Jimmy Martine Oryema and I occassionaly write for the Marches Hive website.

I live in Uganda and my roots are in the north of the country, an area that was torn by war for many years.

I have a dream and this year I have created the Watwero Foundation as a youth led movement that is seeking to promote child protection and welfare, at a community level, in Agago district of northern Uganda. The organization plans to develop residential and non residential child care by empowering the communities and developing the systems that surround the children.


The Foundation will empower the communities within Agago district to promote and embed child protection and welfare. The first phase of the project will run over a period of five years. The project will include:•

Building structural premises and an orphanage to host the orphans, vulnerable children & caregivers.

Engaging professional social workers to carry out work at the foundation and within the community through coordination of community based project activities.

Recruiting between 5 to 10 professionals including caregivers and 15 and 20 orphans, and about 50 to 100 people within the community. The children to be taken care of at the orphanage from the age of 1 month to 18 years.

Times are difficult for everyone right now but every pound you can spare will go to providing a safe and secure environment for children who have no one as well as providing stable employment for those who have little.

I thank you for reading this and i will keep you updated on progress towards our dream.
