Who We Are

Shelter Academy of Light is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in USA and built on a unique partnership between the local Ugandan communities and caring everyday local residents of Arlington Heights, Illinois. Our mission is to build and maintain a private model school to educate and provide relief for poor and orphaned children in Uganda. Here in USA, Shelter Academy of Light is primarily volunteer-driven with a Board of Directors and a growing community of dedicated and caring supporters. In Uganda, there is a committee that comprises of experienced teachers, social workers, church leaders and local leaders who are very dedicated and willing to do whatever it takes to enable this chance of providing a quality education to many orphans and poor children of Uganda thrive.

With your generous support, we are willing and ready to work hard and bring hope and light to the children of Uganda, through who change will come to the nations.
