Friends of Potter's Village

Friends of Potter's Village is a UK Charity (charity number 1173948) supporting the work of Potter's Village Ministries, by raising funds and raising awareness of the work being carried out among children and their families in Kisoro, SW Uganda.

Potter’s Village Ministries

Potter’s Village Ministries is a Child Crisis and Medical Centre in Kisoro. They provide a temporary home for babies whose mothers have died in childbirth, or who are mentally ill or who have been abandoned, until they can be resettled with either their own, or a foster, family. The Medical Centre provides high quality care for all local children, including premature babies.

Sponsor a Child

Would you like to become a sponsor for one of our children?

Most of the children living at Potter's Village are there because their mothers died in childbirth, or their mothers are unable to care for them due to psychiatric illness. Some children have simply been abandoned. 

Friends of Potter’s Village provide financial support for these children, and this continues once they are settled back into the community, usually with their family.

Most families are encouraged, and supported, to start an income generation scheme. This means that after a few years, most families can manage without support, and the sponsor will be allocated another child. Some children, though, will need support for much longer.

We couldn’t manage to support the numbers of children we do at Potter’s Village without our wonderful sponsors, but we invariably have more children than sponsors. Would you like to join them? You will be assigned a specific child, and will receive a photo and a news update twice a year.
