Omushana, Sunshine for Children
is a charity set up by friends from both Uganda and the UK who share
goals to change lives of children, and contribute to conservation
through education, in the areas around the mountain gorilla reserves in
The essence of Omushana is to
make a positive contribution to children’s lives by improving their
educational opportunities, welfare, confidence and enjoyment. They
achieve this by providing and delivering equipment and grants to
schools and groups working to support children (particularly orphans)
in the Mgahinga and Bwindi areas of Uganda.

Pens For Kids UK gave some pens, pencils, erasers and rulers notepads to Omushana, who
transported them to schools in Uganda.
Some of the photos of the items being distributed are shown to the
