Who is Star of Hope?
Your Donations in Action!
As an infant Abuid Wekesa’s teenage mother abandoned him to his grandparents and disappeared. His grandparents struggled daily to earn enough to provide meager food and a roof for him.
At age four, when he became one of the first children taken in by Star of Hope, he was a frail and sad little boy. Now, 10 years later, through hard work and a thirst for knowledge, Abuid just graduated third in his region for 8th grade high school entrance exams! Beyond his grandparent’s wildest dreams,
he is looking forward to high school next year.
Without you, this dream would never have been in reach.

Star of Hope provides a safe, loving home for 30 vulnerable children who lost their parents to HIV/AIDS, armed conflict, abandonment, malaria or other diseases; and in addition provides an education and meals to more than 150 village children whose families would otherwise not be able to afford one.
