St. Moses Children’s Care Centre is a Christian organization, situated in Njeru, Bukaya village 7 km from Jinja. The Centre was started in the early 1970s by a Ugandan, Jane Babirye, who saw the great need for a home for orphans, abandoned, displaced and destitute children. By this, she gathered orphans and needy children, welcomed mothers with their starving children, instructed them in childcare and nutrition and kept them until the children were healthy.
Mama Jane, so named by everyone, was in close contact with churches, hospitals, the welfare office and the police.
After Mama Jane’s death in 1983, a Board of Trustees and a Management Board were formed who took up the responsibility of the Centre.
The Trustees are representatives of the Church of Uganda, African Evangelistic Enterprise and the Community where the Centre is located.
Additionally to those representatives the Management Board consists of a member of Njeru Division and of the Probation and Welfare Officer. All the above formulate the policies and draw the programs of the Centre.
