The Cooperative of Businesses is thriving and has not only helped to train the children, but also generates revenue and enriches our relationships with other members of our local community who now support us as customers.

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."
