The community

Isaac’s House are keen to support the local community. All of our staff our from the local villages around and we support community members in numerous ways. We pay for many children in the community to attend school, due to parents struggling to afford the school fees. We also extend our support to families, children with disabilities and the elderly. For more information on this please contact us.

Isaac’s House support a local woman named Teo and her four children, Junior, Julius, Edith and Dennis. The founder of Isaac’s House, Paul Howells, first met the family during his first visit to Uganda in 2007. Teo and her children were living in extreme poverty, they were struggling for food and unable to pay school fees. Through sponsors, all of the children are now in school and working hard, and Isaac’s House have employed Teo as the cook for our orphaned and helped her move into better accommodation near the orphanage.

Isaac’s House also support three older girls with their further studies at university. One of the girls, Anna Grace, lives at James Dunn House of Hope orphanage when she is not at university, and the other two girls live in the same village as the orphanage in Namulanda. All three girls are very appreciative of being given the opportunity to continue their studies and they work very hard.
