The team at Better Homes and Gardens Australia recently surprised OrphFund's own 10-year-old ambassador Cael with a special thankyou for all his amazing fundraising efforts over the past 5 years to support our kids.
Some bad news from Uganda. On Wednesday a massive storm caused extensive damage to the Kasese Children's Village. Luckily no-one was injured.
The roof of the girls' dormitory and the library was lifted up and blown across the compound, over the wall, and across the road.
The force of the wind ripping the roof off has damaged the wall of the building so we will need to repair/replace that as well as the roof. A neighbour's car was also damaged by the flying roof. Sadly many of the books in the library have been ruined as well.
Please help us meet the cost of these repairs/replacements which have been estimated so far as $3500 AUD.
Please vist our mycause page to donate
Just one of many individual success stories of our children. :)
'It’s of great importance to extend our thanks and appreciation to whole team of ORPHFUND AUSTRALIA for your help. This boy name James Palmer, came to the aid of Orphfund in 2009. At that time, he was living by the Beach side of Lakka Village. After the dead of his parents in 2008, he dropped out of school as a result of having nobody to help him out. The Orphfund team met him by the beach which was his permanent place of getting his daily bread. We took him from there and brought him to our newly established home at Hamilton Village by then. He was sent back to school. Orphfund sponsored him from primary 4 and now he is taking his final high school exams (WASSCE) which will permit him to be enroll into university if he performs well. We are happy because it is a success story, from being dropped out to now hoping to enter university. We Orphfund Tombo is saying a big thank you to whosoever in diverse ways has contributed toward sending this boy to school. We hope you would continue to do more till he finally acquire tertiary education.'
We are in DESPERATE need for new helpers at our amazing stall in Melbourne. Volunteers need to be able to offer 3.5 hours every 4-6 weeks over a Saturday or Sunday.

Honestly, it's a lot of fun and the world gets better with every shift you do! Training will be given.

Enormous thanks to the crew at 7 Apples in St Kilda who've been encouraging customers to pop their spare change into an OrphFund tin.
After a good while, they hauled in $1656.80 for our work in Uganda. It's amazing what a handful of coins can add up to!!! :)
