One can make a difference



“My life has been forever transformed by volunteering in Uganda. Its people and its unspoiled beauty, the culture of gratitude and joy have filled my soul in unimaginable ways.  I encourage anyone to join us for an experience of a lifetime”

The Orphans who inspired it all

Our project work and our school is in the village of Kalagala, in Masaka, Uganda and the surrounding 4 villages that are comprised of more than 800 orphans we first met in 2013.  This is a song the children performed for the founders of OMACAN during their first visit in 2013.  These children along with the street kids of the Nyendo slum have inspired us.  The children often say to us "thank you for loving us, thank you so, so much" and to that child we reply "Weebale nnyo nkwagala nnyo, nnyo, nnyo.  Neeyan zizza nnyo" which means similar in Lugandan
