The Wind of Hope Initiative was founded by Fr. Bomukama Denes. While doing community needs assessment and social work in Busiriba Sub-county in 2016, Fr. Denes witnessed how many children were living below the poverty line and were facing life-threatening challenges, such as hunger and the lack of basic needs.
He started conducting some charity work within the area and was later joined by a few passionate friends who extended support due to the increase of day-to-day community needs that required an extra hand.
In 2020, this group adopted the name Wind of Hope Initiative and was registered with the district local government as a Community Based Organization (CBO) with a major focus on education, health, psycho-social support, and agribusiness. The main beneficiaries of WOH are orphans, vulnerable children and their caregivers.
