Okoa Hero’s Child Ministries
Our story begins in 2021 with a family in the village of Kasoslo in the Bulamagi sub-county, Iganga/Uganda. Here, 28 children live with their grandmother under difficult in a dilapidated house and struggle daily through life. Hissa Bakachi, their grandfather, who took care of the children for many years, died unexpectedly in the spring 2022.
Teven Kibumba, head of the HFCA Foundation in Iganga, and Micha Koch, then head of an NGO in Germany, visited the Bakachis during a humanitarian trip. Both felt inspired to help the children. In July 2022, Okoa Hero’s Child Ministries, based in Iganga/Uganda, was registered together. It is one of many steps to get the certification as a non-profit organization. Recognition as a charitable foundation has been applied for, which takes its own time..
Our common vision is to renovate the existing house and grounds of Bakachi Kids and to create here a place that ensures the basic requirements for a children’s home with education, health and nutrition, where they can grow up sheltered and develop freely.

Bashiri is responsible for education. Pastor Jacob looks after the welfare of the children and Betty is responsible for meeting the basic needs of families.
In doing so, Okoa Hero’s Child Ministries extends its assistance to the entire community in the Busoga sub-county to help other women and families with children in Kasoslo village find their way to a sustainable future. Through the community, cohesion is strengthened. An essential tool for this is education and helping people to help themselves. Small projects such as the distribution of washable sanitary towels, basic foodstuffs such as rice and beans, or the procurement of school materials are also close to our hearts and are gratefully accepted.
Jobs for women is especially important for community transformation. Research shows that women will spend up to 90% of their income on health, nutrition, and education for their families
