Sanyu Babies' Home projects.

1. Today Sanyu Babies' Home desperately requires the improvement of the security measures boundary wall. Their existing boundary wall is very old and weak. On several occasions thieves have broken into Sanyu through the current fence to steal (quite literally from the mouths of babes in this case). Building a new boundary wall will greatly increase the security of Sany Babies' Home creating a safer place to live and thrive for both children and staff alike. Sanyu have consulted with an architect to devise a building plan - an estimate of the costs is still required. Take a quick look at the plans CLICK HERE for an idea of the scope of this project.

2. The Sanyu Craft Shop - selling African crafts, statues, clothing, sandals, jewelry, etc.All profits go towards the care of the babies at Sanyu. Please plan to visit the Sanyu craft shop whenever you are in Kampala.

The Guest House is one of our biggest income generating projects for the Home.
