The Gem Foundation opened six years ago and has since had the privilege of caring for 77 orphaned and abused children with special needs in Uganda.
In Uganda and many parts of the world, children with special needs are considered a curse, unwanted, unloved, and often abandoned. We want to restore their value and share with the world the infinite worth of each precious Gem! We are a home and a safe place for abandoned, neglected, and abused children with special needs.
We care for more than 45 children and have watched malnourished children nursed back to health, and seen scared and withdrawn children find their smile again. Through sponsorship, we're able to provide full-time care, therapy, education, and help children reach their fullest potential!
Gem Village will provide an entirely handicap accessible village for our children. Every detail of the village has been carefully planned in order that each Gem can reach their full potential. Our precious Gems finally have a place to call home!
