Students of Hellen’s

Pre-Primary School

Josephine Kanzira, CEO and Director of the Kajoma Child Prosperity (KCPC), started the Kajoma Child Prosperity Center. During that time, she recognized that many of the young children of the center were orphaned due to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. While managing the center with her sister (Hellen), she understood that many of these children could benefit even more if given the chance of having a family.


Hellen’s Pre-Primary School evolved from the KCPC and was named after Josephine’s late sister, Hellen, who was devoted and committed to caring for the orphans.


The children in the orphanage are between the ages 3 and 15, are in the adoption program, and are waiting for sponsors. Because the children enter the program as orphans, the KCPC is the only home they know, and some remain in the program until they are up to 23 years of age.

AFO STORIES

She found out that his dream was similar to hers…


Josephine Kanzira was born in Mulago Kawempe Division, Kampala District, in Central Uganda. Her parents had little time for her, leading to lack of connection with her mother due to her daily commitments to sustain the entire family and to make up for the absence of her dad, who used to supervise and monitor the forestry work in the country…

Grace Victor Nakiganda

Grace Victor Nakiganda Story

Grace Victor Nakiganda was born in a poor family in one of the villages in Masaka. Grace’s father died when she was 2 years old, leaving her and her mother to live alone with paternal grandparents. When her mother could no longer stay with her in-laws, she began working as a maid in a home. She became involved with a married man, who eventually abandoned her after realizing that she gave birth to a disabled girl, a sister to Grace. This is when she started attending church services, where the pastor and some church leaders in Nabweru started rendering some help in terms of rent and food.

Grace joined the project Kajoma Child Prosperity Center in 2018 through connections with caseworkers who visited that church and felt touched about the situation that Grace and her mother were in. Now, she is studying and the head girl of the school. Very bright, she doesn’t miss classes; she is more interested in learning games, becoming a good dancer, and improving her speaking skills. She dreams of becoming a doctor.

Grace thanks All For One and all donors who have helped her to have this chance.

More is needed for her to reach her dream of becoming a doctor.

Josephine Kanzira

Chief Executive Officer Kajoma Child Prosperity Center

Josephine Kanzira was born in Mulago Kawempe Division, Kampala District, in Central Uganda. Her parents had little time for her, leading to lack of connection with her mother due to her daily commitments to sustain the entire family and to make up for the absence of her dad, who used to supervise and monitor the forestry work in the country. Because her parents could not be there for her when she needed them, she dropped out of school and got married at an early age of 17 to Joseph Tulyatunga. She gave birth to four girls and two boys, who now live in the US. Her life was a struggle, and she realized that children should not be left behind without any parental care.

She attended Kitabi Girls Elementary School in Western Uganda. She attained a Primary Leaving Examination Certificate (PLE), joined Kibuli Secondary School, attaining a Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE). Then she attended Makerere High School, where she attained her Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE). Then she joined Nakawa Top Care School of Accountancy, earning a Diploma in Accountancy.

She started working at a young age at the Ministry of Labour as a clerical worker. She joined GULF Consulting Engineers Uganda under its ministry of works.In the US, she earned a Certificate in Nursing and worked as a Nursing Assistant at Sam Land Business Institute. With her background in accounting, she later worked for SEAWAY Bank in Chicago for two years. Josephine then started Sharom Home Care Agencies, training nursing assistants, caregivers, and patient care technicians. She then started pursuing her dream of feeding the neglected, needy children in Uganda.

In 2003, she joined World Financial Group (WFG), where she met Jeff Levitan in Chicago, IL. In 2005, Jeff introduced her to All For One Foundation. She found out that his dream was similar to hers. They connected, and he made up his mind in that same year to visit Uganda for the first time. The project (Kajoma Child Prosperity Center) had 100 children by that time and, when Jeff saw the demand for shelter due to the population factor, he suggested buying land for more space and accommodations.
