Our Mission

Creating hope and a future for children living with HIV.


Among the vast numbers of orphaned and vulnerable children, children living with HIV 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 Vision

We envision a story of redemption for orphaned and vulnerable children living with HIV.  We believe in their redemption spiritually, physically and educationally.  We pray for a day when HIV will not be considered a death sentence, and a child's HIV status will not define their destiny.  Our hope is that Cherish Uganda will be the foundation of a generation of HIV positive children being raised as signs and symbols of hope within their nation, with the Truth of the Gospel as their anthem.  

Our Faith

We are a faith-based organization, founded upon and operating on Christian beliefs.

Our faith and trust in Christ is what motivates and moves every act and decision made at Cherish Uganda.  

We believe in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We cling to the Truth written in Ephesians 2:4-5, which reads, "But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved."  Therefore, we believe that Jesus' death on the cross and resurrection has paved the way for reconciliation and relationship with our Heavenly Father. Upon putting one's faith in this Truth, we believe that God sends the Holy Spirit to indwell every new believer and lead them to live out lives in a manner worthy of the Gospel.  As the Lord has radically transformed our lives with His redemptive grace, our hope is that each individual who steps foot in Cherish Uganda would also be awakened and redeemed by this Good News.
