About
My name is Jenny Taylor and I am the founder of Our Hope International. This non-profit organization has been formed by the hands of God following a trip to serve in Uganda, Africa.While serving in Uganda I had the opportunity to meet Edith Lukabwe, the director of Home of Hope, an orphanage that serves children with disabilities. I had been praying for a way to use my occupational therapy skills though missions and working with these children was the answer!
Who We Support
Home of Hope is the primary organization that Our Hope supports. It is located in Bugembe,Uganda and is home to 20 children with various disabilities. The orphanage was founded by Edith Lukabwe after struggling to find resources for her son Derrick, who was born with cerebral palsy. Children with disabilities are often shunned and abandoned in Uganda due to the stigma that the child’s disability is a reflection of the parents, especially the mother. Edith felt the Lord leading her to start a home especially for orphaned children with disabilities. Edith is the director and has a staff of 11 nannies, an OT, a therapy assistant and an administrator.

Mt. Zion Primary School - Our Hope also currently supports Mt. Zion Primary School. They are the only school in the area that serves children with disabilities. The school has a special education teacher and specific program to meet these children’s needs. The students live at the school and have a full time caregiver to assist them. We currently have sponsors for 4 children at Home of Hope to attend and another child in the community.
