The idea of forming Crib of Hope was conceived in 2008 in response to the large numbers of children living and working on the streets of Kampala city. Its formation was driven by a young, passionate and devoted girl (Patience Kezabu Saazi, now 14 years old) whose heart has always been broken seeing the suffering of children on street and those in other contexts. At the age of 5 years, she developed the love to help such children in need starting with the provision of food to street children in the neighborhood. As this nascent desire grew, so was her belief that there is someone responsible for the suffering of children. Her conviction is that these children should not suffer but rather should be supported, accepted in society and enabled to live a better life. As the years went by, Patience joined a boarding school in Kenya but on her return to Kampala she realized that street kids were not as many as she left them. Her desire to find them and adopt them to her home prompted the parent’s involvement and hence the beginning of several visits to the nearby remand homes and this was the genesis of Crib of Hope to fulfill Kezaabu’s dream.
