About St. Peter Initiative Orphanage Center
St. Peter Initiative Orphanage Center was established in 2009 by elder members of the community at St. Peter Catholic Church, located in the suburb region of Nakwero, in the capital Kampala, Uganda, due to the increased need to provide care to infants and orphaned children due to various factors. The children at St. Peter Initiative Orphanage Center get the chance to receive the care and nurturing they would not have gotten, thanks to our faithful and hard working caretakers and volunteers.
In Uganda, more than 36% of the young children are malnourished and not living with their parents or family relatives. Poor infrastructure and slow social development due to political and cultural conflicts have left their guardians destitute. The poor social status has left these children with little or no hope hence they are subject to exploitation and many end up living on the streets.
