Giving Thanks


Giving thanks is important, not only on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. We all have so much to be thankful for: the kids, Aunties and Uncles at Malayaka House, the communities we work with, our volunteers and all our supporters near and far.

Without the kids, each of our lives would not be as rich and wonderful! Brightening our days and bringing so much joy to us each and every day. Seeing each grow and develop into such strong, loving, intelligent and fun people makes your heart glow. We could not be more thankful that each child at Malayaka House has come into our family.

The Aunties and Uncles who are a vital part of the Malayaka House Family, and for this we are thankful. By caring and nurturing each of the kids and being so friendly and helpful to all of our volunteers, we can not imagine our lives without them! By opening their hearts, the lives of our kids are enriched and even better than we could have dreamed of.

We are so thankful for the communities we have the opportunity to work with, both in Uganda and abroad. The impact Malayaka House can have is beyond the immediate needs of food, shelter, education and medicine, but to broadening our own and others’ sense of belonging to one another. Whether creating sustainable living systems for a children’s home or doing a presentation for a school thousands of miles away from Uganda, we are one big community and one big Family.

We are beyond grateful for all of our volunteers. Malayaka House is run on volunteer efforts, time, energy and donations. Without the volunteers in the Malayaka House Family, all of our efforts would not be possible. From running markets in Spain to hosting film screenings across the United States to sharing their time and skills with our kids, community and projects in Uganda, volunteers are at the heart of all we do.

On Thanksgiving, and every day, we give thanks and share our gratitude! Interested in showing your gratitude with Malayaka House? Donations can be made online: (English) (España)


About Malayaka House

We are the little place in Uganda that takes in children from hopeless situations and gives them shelter, food, medicine, and most importantly – love. We are the little place in Uganda that works with local communities to provide access to education, medicine, job training and sustainable living. We are the little place in Uganda that has reached out to help other local children’s homes with desperately needed food, water, security, electricity by using eco-friendly methods of farming and energy. We started out with one action of love, which has now grown into an entire movement. Please explore this site to learn about our projects, and "La La Salaama Na Malayaka….Sleep with angels."
