about







Starlight Family is a UK based charity, in partnership with Starlight Family Kiboga Uganda, dedicated to raise funds to support orphans and vulnerable children and adults in Nasuuna and Nakassagazi villages, Kiboga, Uganda. Starlight Family’s young founder in Uganda, Lukyamuzi James was himself an orphan and street child and knows the difficult conditions faced by many living in his local area today. His charismatic and selfless attitude has nurtured the organisation since 2010 reaching out to those who are in need of practical and emotional support living in places often too remote to receive support from other aid agencies.

Visit to Starlight Family 2014


During our visit to distribute financial and material donations in December 2014 we observed
the levels of poverty in the area and the lack of infrastructure and funding. It was apparent how even a little of our help can make a big difference in their lives and so we decided to continue to help.Currently donations are helping with food, clothing, shelter, medicinal and educational needs of the beneficiaries. In the long term we aim to undertake projects that will raise standards of living and help Starlight Family Kiboga to become self supporting.





Overview of projects


Thanks to the kindness of people and the hard work of Lukyamuzi James we have been able to touch the lives of many and make a real difference to them. To read about some of our recent achievements please click here.
We request your continued support so that we can sustain what has been achieved already. Also there are urgent and long term  projects that we are seeking to fund some of which are listed below.

Urgent Projects

Renovation of community water source.


Renovation of the local spring well that supplies water for three villages is urgently needed to avoid health issues that are associated with stagnant water which has previously led to illness and death in the community. Uganda is currently experiencing a drought which makes it even more urgent to upgrade the water facility so that it can provide water that is both plentiful and safe.

Developing the Farm

Thanks to our supporters we have been able to fence the farm enabling us to be able to use it to grow crops, providing food and income for our charity school, orphans and to help support the local community. Thanks to another kind donation Lukyamuzi James, director of Starlight Family will be able to be trained in organic gardening so the farm can become an organic training center for the region. We are looking for people to help support us further and provide much needed items to help us achieve our vision and move closer to becoming self supporting. We are looking to fund the following:
A reservoir for water storage
Sheds for tool storage and facilitating organic workshops
Gardening tools
Plants and seeds
