For our first article..An Interview with Ntege Nasser founder of Tabasamu Light of Hope Uganda.

Hi there what is your name?

Ntege Nasser

What inspired you to start Tabasamu Light of Hope Uganda?

I lived the orphanage life since my childhood on the street without anyone helping…so I know all about the pain of being poor, needy, on the street, as an orphan and the situation for HIV AIDS Born children without anyone helping them…So this inspired me since my childhood ..I grow my orphanage with the spirit of helping the children as I am an orphan too from the age of five years.

What is your mission at Tabasamu and how does your ministry work?

Our mission is to help children grow spiritually and meet there life goals and vision.
To eventually help more than 1000 children.
To help build the children a permanent home.
To build a hospital.
To build a school.
To build churches.

How many children do you currently care for at Tabasamu again?

We have now 42 children.

Is this ministry credentialed?

Yes. It’s a community based organization.

How might someone in the states or worldwide assist in Tabasamus mission? Are there any international members of your ministry?

Yes we do have very many international members

Is your ministry undergoing any specific needs that the readers can help?

Yes we pray to meet the following mission of these projects:

1: Children’s orphanage home as per now we are renting.
2: School project as educating children here is very expensive and we can’t educate as many children as we want due to limited sources. Our goal is to provide formal education for more than 500 children …I know when we build both primary and secondary levels we can make it in Jesus name!


3: Health project..As it is in our plans to build a hospital to benefit the community with free health services… Many mother’s die here in Uganda every day in hospital due to poverty which lead to rampant orphans.
4:Land ..we aim to have land to grow food and other agriculture activities like poultry
5 : Churches.
