Welcome to Pennies for Posho

WHAT IS POSHO?

Posho is the staple food of Uganda & many countries across Africa (may be called ugali, sima, sembe)

We call it a second cousin to grits. Made from ground up corn flour mixed in water with a thick consistency of a tough batch of mashed potatoes.

The traditional way of eating posho is to roll a handful into a ball with the right hand, and then dip it into a sauce or stew of vegetables or meat.

In 2007, the organization was formed from the donations of children who generously gave coins to their church’s VBS offering, allowing us to adopt our first four orphanages in Uganda.

Due to God’s unbelievable favor in the past 6 years, we now are able to stand along side with 14 pastors at our schools & orphanages and feed over 5,000 children.

Our main priority at each of our orphanages is that each one of our children grow into a relationship with Jesus. We give Him all the praise for His blessings upon the ministry and ask for your prayers as we seek to follow His guidance on expanding our ministry in Uganda.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans & widows in their distress…”  (James 1:27)
