And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others
About Our Founder...
Kayanja Brian, the founder of Lwazi Lwedda foundation grew up in an orphanage home established by his late grandmother (Margaret). This was after the death of his mother to HIV. Grannie Margaret had 5 kids and among them was Brian’s mother. All the 5 kids died of HIV and his grandmother was left with so many grandchildren to take care of but with very little support to help her. Her heart for helping the grandkids grew bigger and she extended it by harboring more vulnerable children like those neglected by their parents, street kids, infected with HIV and orphans. All these added to the grandchildren made a total of approximately 75 children under Margaretâ€™s care. Sometimes two or three children could share a small bed
With the help of different well-wishers, this children-helping scheme was turned into an orphanage school which provided free education and spiritual development to thousands of children over a period of 15-20years. Brian is a product of this background.
Brian’s inspiration roots from the story of his life characterized by being totally orphaned at age 9 and growing up under the care of a grandmother with a big heart for helping others and wanting to see others succeed in spirit and life. After a careful study on the enduring problems that Uganda continues to face, Brian started Lwazi Lwedda Foundation. An organization aimed at empowering women with vulnerabilities and no hope to get to a position where they can best be self-sustaining. The target groups include widows, women living with HIV, single mothers, victims of domestic violence, teenage mothers and other categories. Lwazi Lwedda Foundation teaches these women, hands-on skills like, making bar soap, petroleum jelly, reusable sanitary pads, plus teaching them modern farming skills like keeping chicken, pigs and rabbits.
