Supporting Youth in Portland and Orphans in Uganda
HALO Portland was born in 2009 with a goal to raise the annual funds for the Bukesa Children’s Home in Kampala, Uganda. The home provides a healthy environment for children who were previously living on the streets. Beyond food, clothing, education, and medical attention, Bukesa incorporates art therapy, sports, music, community service, and mentorship into the kids’ daily lives. Check out the HALO Portland Blog.
HALO Portland is also very active in our own community, partnering with local non-profits to provide character-building art workshops. Click on Local Programs to learn more.
To donate to the projects of the Portland branch, visit the donate and enter “Bukesa Home” in the box labeled “in tribute to,” or mail a check the HALO Headquarters and write “Bukesa Home” in the memo of the check.
