Cherish Uganda exists to create hope and a future for children living with HIV
Among the vast numbers of orphaned and vulnerable children, children living with HIV can be considered the 'least of the least' as they are often overlooked or unseen. With very little care offered to this marginalized group of children, we feel that God has our organization to be part of the redeeming story He wants to author in their lives.
Our Core Values
1. Connect with Christ: Discipleship is at the core of everything we do. We deeply desire to help our children and staff connect with Christ in a meaningful way that celebrates who He is & who we are in Him.
2. Care for Children: Caring for children with HIV is what we do. And when it comes to caring, we want it to go well beyond good nutrition, quality healthcare, excellent education and a safe place to call home. We want our children to be cared for in a deep way that addresses their individual needs in a holistic way.
3. Change the Story: We want to help change the story that has been written in many of the lives of our children and staff members. We want to help rid the stigma of HIV and help create a redemption story for these kids, a story where the light of hope outshines any darkness that has covered their past.
4. Continue the Calling: There is more to life than today, so we want everything we do at Cherish Uganda to be sustainable and to have an eternal perspective. From relationships to investments, we want these commitments to be made with longevity and the bigger picture in mind.
