Background

About usThe Uganda Martyrs Orphans’ Project (UMOP) is an indigenous nonprofit, started in 1990 by a young girl called Margaret Anyokorit Angoye. Margaret, completed her first College degree and soon joined the religious congregation of the daughters of St. Paul. She was forced to leave the congregation before she took the vows as a novice because she was discovered to be infected with HIV the virus that causes AIDS. At that time, the world had just come to know of the virus and everybody was scared of it.
