UGANDA MARTYRS ORPHANS PROJECT (UMOP) is an Indigenous Non Governmental Organization (NGO) founded in 1992 and registered with the Ugandan NGO Board, Ministry of Internal Affairs. It has no religious biases and serves all people without favor or prejudice. Rev. Father Centurio Olaboro, its Director, is a man who embodies the highest ideals of the UMOP. Located in Tororo District in Osukuru Sub-County, its focus is mainly children, the youth and orphans.

UMOP cares for almost nine hundred orphaned children. Many of these children came from the streets where they were in danger of drug and sex abuse. UMOP has collaborated with International Labor Organization and the National Council on Children in this regard. UMOP receives care and support from The River Fund in the USA and works closely with the probation and welfare office in Tororo District to further its goals and objectives. UMOP provides several services to the people of Tororo District: Ma’s Nursery and Day Care Center, Great Aubrey Memorial College and St. James Community Polytechnic are just three of the outstanding educational and support services offered.

    Our Mission

    is to reach out and help orphans towards a self-reliant future and rehabilitate them together within their families.

    Our Vision

    is to give hope and encouragement to AIDS orphans and other orphans and build their lives based on spiritual values in order to become responsible and productive members of the community.

    Our Strategies

    include settling orphan children within families whenever possible and not institutionalizing them. This is done in close cooperation with government authorities. School fees, counseling services and other educational support materials are provided. Medical support, including home visits, is also provided to orphans. Income-generating activities are created to sustain families beyond UMOP’s reach. We offer vocational training to equip the orphans with basic skills and knowledge in artisan, craftsmanship, blacksmiths and related fields.

    Founder & Volunteers

    We make a difference in the lives of people during a very traumatic time in their life. Meeting their medical transport needs eases their burden.
