The programs of Okoa Refuge run entirely off of support from incredible people like you! Without our champions, donors and partners, Okoa would not be able to continue operating. There are a variety of ways that you can get involved and support the work that is happening in East Africa.


Become a monthly partner!

There is a common misconception that the only people who donate monthly are those who sponsor kids. In reality, Okoa's monthly partners are the true champions of the work that is taking place in East Africa.

Okoa needs monthly partners in all areas of the ministry. We hope that you will respond to the tugging on your heart and give toward which ever of Okoa's projects speaks loudest to you!


One Time Gifts

If you've got some cash and are wondering where to give it...there is no better place than right here! There is no way to adequately explain how important you are to Okoa. We are so thankful for your sacrifices of time and money on behalf of our people! Thank you for responding to the call to give!


Spread the Word!

Social media has become an incredible way to make a statement and support a cause. Okoa needs people who will use their social networks in order to raise awareness about what Okoa is doing in Uganda and East Africa!

Another option is to host a sponsorship party in your home! Invite your friends over, feed them some delicious food, tell them about Okoa and show them the faces of the sweet and beautiful kiddos that call Okoa "home."

Share your Birthday

Okoa has always made it a point to celebrate the birthdays of each of our kids. Every month we host a birthday celebration!  Sometimes it consists of a party at Okoa, other times it is a movie night, and every once in a while we go out for a fancy dinner in town!

So what does this mean for YOU? How can you partner with us to celebrate the fact that these kids were born? Well, we know that you, too, have a birthday! Our challenge is to ask your friends to help you share your birthday with the kids at Okoa. Use your special day to raise money for the birthday party at Okoa.

Copy the link below and share, share, share! It really is that simple! 



Come and visit

Traveling all the way to Uganda can seem pretty intimidating to a lot of people. The travel is long, for sure! However, once you arrive in Masaka, you will realize what a good decision you made to come!

The incredible (read: perfect) weather, the gorgeous vistas and the bright, and sweet smiles of the Ugandan people will amaze even the most exhausted traveler.

Coming to Okoa is an experience that will stick with you long after you reach home. Consider this your personal invitation to come and be a part of something much bigger than yourself!! We hope to meet you soon!
