Who are the Friends of HOREMI?

We are (still) a handful of private spon­sors from Germany who decided in mid-2023 to further expand the loose support of HOREMI and to found a non-profit asso­ci­a­tion for this purpose. Our goal: to give chil­dren’s lives a posi­tive direc­tion. Through commu­nity, accom­mo­da­tion, food, educa­tion and prospects.

Why should I support this initiative in far away Uganda?

  1. because HOREMI really needs you.
  2. because you prob­ably can.
  3. because this will be some of the best invested money in your life: a handful of dollars buys a child a future.

Is HOREMI reputable?

HOREMI has been regis­tered with the local author­i­ties as a non-profit “Commu­nity Based Orga­ni­za­tion, CBO” (Certifi­cate of Regis­tra­tion) and recog­nized as a non-profit orga­ni­za­tion (Permit Of Oper­a­tion) since 2015. You can find more infor­ma­tion in this blog article.

Will my donation arrive safely?

Yes. If you donate directly to HOREMI via, or use the conve­nient way via our German PayPal account, your dona­tion will arrive safely at HOREMI. You can find more infor­ma­tion on our dona­tion page.

What are the administrative costs? Are there any fees or other deductions?

There are no costs (zero) on our side (Friends of HOREMI). If you use PayPal, fees will be charged which are beyond our control. For the transfer to Uganda and the exchange of Euro/Dollar into the local currency Uganda Shilling (UGX) we use the cheapest option (transfer services like or

Can I suspend a sponsorship?

Times where money is tight do not only occur in Uganda. In this case it would be nice if you could let us know briefly at And of course HOREMI will be very happy if we can welcome you back as a sponsor any time later on.

How can I cancel my sponsorship?

Just send us a short message with the keyword “cancel­la­tion” to Your spon­sor­ship will be termi­nated, no ques­tions asked. You are not bound to any dead­lines either (and are of course you will be welcome back at any time).

Does my sponsorship donation exclusively benefit one child?

No. The amount of the spon­sor­ship dona­tion is based on the approx­i­mate needs of a child for food, school fees, accom­mo­da­tion, etc. And since not all chil­dren neces­sarily have spon­sors, but all are always hungry, the spon­sor­ship dona­tion ends up in the big pot from which the entire orphanage is financed. However, the spon­sored chil­dren know that they have a sponsor and are happy about it.

Are donations in kind also possible and useful?

No. All neces­sary goods are purchased locally by HOREMI. This also supports the local economy, which in turn promotes accep­tance within the commu­nity. HOREMI is also an economic factor on site!

Can I communicate directly with the responsible persons in Uganda?

Yes, you can find the contact details here. You can commu­ni­cate in these languages: Lusoga, Luganda — and English.
