It is hard to talk about the success of Orutindo project without mentioning the name Popp. Susanne and Christian Popp family have been supportive not only in supporting some children in the Orutindo Project but have also Organised some event in supporting the Orutindo Project. One of their big achievement in 2017 is that they have managed with Alexander Weber to Organise the Donation of 10 Laptops to Orutindo Project which are meant to enhance the learning of New skills at the Education center in Rushooka Village. The computers are not yet installed as they are waiting for the Installation of Electricity in the House. This has made so much joy for the project, the long awaited wish finally became a reality. Thank you Susanne and Christian Popp and Alexander Weber for the good and hard work. Your love for the project has given us power and joy to go on. May God bless you.
The long awaited christmas party for Orutindo Project kids came to reality. The long planned christmas party for kids finally took place with lots of foods, drinks and presents for the kids. It was memorable, the kids themselves helped to prepare the food, to fetch firewood, to fetch water, to clean up the place. It was too taste, prepared was Rice, boiled bananas, beef stew, groundnut stew, sodas, cookies and lots of school materials as presents, clothes, bedsheets, toothbrushes, soaps, creams and so on. It was memorable and the Orutindo stuff will live to remember this day.
Dear friends, sponsors, members and well wishers, we would like to thank you so much for the love and support you have shown Orutindo Project. Today we have managed to have and to support 40 children in different schools. Some are in Nursery school, some in primary school, some in secondary school and some in technical school. Most of them have no parents, some have one parent but not able to support them in school and some have parents but have abandoned them. Our role at Orutindo project has been to support these children by providing them with school fees, school materials, food, clothes and moral support. We would like to thank all those who have been with us in this struggle to support these children and hope to make them responsible and independent citizens. We have since some years also constructed a house which is supposed to be an education center for these kids, providing accommodation for those homeless kids but also the house will have a computer station where children could come and take their computer lessons. Alot of toys will also be present in this house and kids could always come and learn together and play together. In this house will also be a library with books, where kids could come and read and research since most of them dont have privace, time and lights in their own homes. In the new photos from 2018 you could see how the work on this house is progressing. Not forgeting the road construction reaching up to the house. Up to now , we did not have a road up the Orutindo house, but this year we have achieved it.
With lots of Happiness, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to Farma u Drhovskych for the support towards finishing Orutindo project education center house. Your visit to Uganda was an honour, your willingness to come in touch with lots of kids in Uganda and helping them wherever has touched our hearts. We will forever remain grateful and may God continue to bless your work.
Yours, Orutindo Project Team.
We would like to give alot of Thanks to Zoo Dvorec staff czech Republic who found time out of their busy schedule to visit the Orutindo Project and even were able to meet with some of the Orutindo kids and more so managed to take with them lots of presents for the Orutindo kids like Pencils, colours, books and so on. May your kind hearts grow bigger and bigger. Together we can bring wide smiles to unfortunate kids. Zoo Dvorec, Way to go.
Nice to Meet You Uganda
I placed this picture on my dream board many years after I had made the decision to one day visit Africa, and only a few years before I finally did.
Meeting Joseline and Tomas in December of 2014 completely changed my view of what it meant to travel to Africa, Uganda. With their enthusiasm and love for Uganda and its people, they helped me to realize that my childhood dream would actually come true, and that it would not be as scary as I once thought it would be.
When you travel throughout the country you´ll understand why Winston Churchill called this place “Pearl of Africa”.It’s an indescribable feeling walking among rhinos and standing face to face with giraffes, or going down the river Nile watching elephants, hippos, crocodiles and other species in their wild home.
After a week of traveling throughout Uganda I was welcomed by hills of a land full of milk and honey. These are the hills that separate southern part of Uganda from Rwanda – the same hills that filled my dreams half a year before I visited them in reality.
Thanks to hospitality of fathers from Franciscan parish in Rushooka, I was living as a queen compared to the conditions in which most of the villagers live every day.
During my stay I visited local primary school. There I observed classrooms where over 60 children learned from a single teacher. I saw how the children are taught discipline, and how they spend long, exhausting days at school. But I was also very touched by how they sing and dance so naturally in their traditions.
One of the strongest moments that is imprinted in my memory happened when I was teaching. I had to explain to the children how to color with paint and a brush because they had never seen something like that in their life. Big thanks to my family and friends who donated colors, brushes, colored pencils, coloring books and papers.

As we celebrate a new year 2016 in style, we would also like to reach out to all our members and to let you know that two from our Orutindo Project kids have been admitten on a Technical Institution in Rwanda (Centre of Father Vjeko- Kivumu). They will study there for 3 year Fashion and Design. Most of all we would like to thank Father Ivica, the Director of the school who opened up and gave us the chance that the two girls could be admitted and study there. To the Orutindo members, we thank you for your continued support and we still invite everyone who supports our cause to join us as we bring more smiles to many kids and many families. We have no choice other than wishing NSIMIIRE DAVIS and NINSIIMA MEDIUS a wonderful stay in Rwanda.
