Additionally, 1 child received exploratory surgery in 2012 and has recently completed school and been accepted into the school of Pharmacy beginning Fall 2013. A house has been completed in Namugongo to replace the previous home that was extremely dilapidated. 90 acres of undeveloped land has been purchased for future expansion and construction of a church, school, medical clinic, and dormitories.

As a volunteer for ULA, I am impressed by the spiritual training the children receive and the dedication of the founders and Board of Directors. They have made numerous improvements in the organization over the past year that have streamlined operations and allowed most of the donated funds to be used for programs directly impacting the children.

After attending a fund-raiser in early 2014, my husband and I began sponsoring a 13-year old AIDS orphan. In August of that year, my husband went to Uganda with a Ugandan Lambs Assn USA team to visit the children in their environment and work on some of the facilities projects. He was struck by the quality of care the children receive, physically, educationally, emotionally and spiritually. The "Lambs" are thriving and growing into productive young men and women who are being empowered to give back to their native land, and in some cases, to the Ugandan Lambs organization. So impressed was he both by the needs and the quality care, that he accepted a position on the board of directors. This year, I also was invited and accepted a position on the board. We are committed to serving as long as we are able, to ensure that the organization survives and thrives into the future.

Ugandan Lambs supports over 70 children in Uganda who would have no hope without the physical, spiritual, and educational support of this nonprofit. The entire organization is volunteer run which allows almost all donations to be used for programs that directly impact the children. have supported children through ULA for over 14 years and have spend numerous hours as a volunteer (including 4 -5 trips to Uganda to minister to the children).

Ugandan Lambs is a great group to belong to and get involved with. Not only you can personally get to know the founders, Sam and Ruth, and help with a great cause, but you are meeting a great need in helping young people get a good education and spiritual help. This is such a step up for these kids who other wise wouldn't have a chance to better themselves because of losing their family through AIDS.
So many nonprofit groups are misusing the system and scamming people. But Sam and his wife, Ruth, are such dear people with a real heart to help these kids. After many years of hardships, things are coming together.

Ugandan Lambs doesn't just write about problems. They don't just gather money and send it off. Ugandan Lambs takes action on the ground, in Uganda, improving the lives of many needy individuals, families, and communities. I like private charities. They provide the most supportive and effective bang for the buck. Sam and Ruth Sebabi exemplify what is good about private charity. They are big-hearted and driven to fix problems. Big organizations and governments have their role, but small private charities focus in and fulfill needs. Three cheers to Ugandan Lambs. May they carry on in helping those in need in finding hope, increasing prosperity, and success.

This charitable organization does an outstanding job. Sam Sebabi, his wife Ruth, and all of the caring volulnteers who support the Ugandan Lambs provide a nurturing, Christian environment for oorphans in Uganda. They support all of their needs including an excelelnt education. In reading through the other reviews I must say that I am even more impressed by the care that the founders take in keeping the administrative costs so low, insuring that almost all of the donations go to the orphaned children.

This charity is doing great work that has a meaningful impact on the lives of children and the community in which they live. They have a focused mission that uses money in a way that I would use it with my own children. Ugandan Lambs is equipping their children so they have the tools to succeed and contribute to their community well into the future. Their philosophy of establishing a solid foundation for these children to be able to build on is meaningful, effective, and lasting. This is the type of change for good that i can feel good about supporting.

The Ugandan Lambs Association (uLA) has an unquestionably positive and life-saving effect on the orphans who are part of ULA. The love and commitment of the founders and team members is clear; and I can see that each child has their needs met and also feels loved and cared for. This is an organization that I am so impressed with, and it is a blessing to see the great work that it is doing.
