Who we are
VHU is a CBO that hosts volunteers and orphans in Uganda. VHU was founded in 2000 by Vincent Sekirime. During his teenage, Vincent Sekirime worked in his Ground father’s Organization. Through his grandfather, he gained experience and he developed love of helping others. He started a small savings group of 4 people within his family and started saving money every week to buy basic needs and give them to the poor kids. This impressed his parents promised to empower Vincent and his sisters to start CBO. Thus VHU was born.
However a few years later, Vincent’s parents died of HIV/AIDS, so he became an orphan and started struggling for his education and day today living which affected his time of implementing the CBO PROJECTS.
Fortunately, in 2010 Vincent resumed his idea once gain and started processing the papers and encouraging the community to join him in lifting the lives of others through coming together as community and be one person.
The community joined him and the process continued, the organization was registered 15th/march/2011; they started working helping community with services like cleaning vulnerable home, old women and men homes, plus collecting money from community members which helped them in time of needs like funeral services and giving small loans to community.
