Irene Gleeson Foundation
Transforming, Liberating, and Empowering Uganda Communities to Care for their children, providing a future and a hope through Christ
In 1991, Mama Irene Gleeson sold her beachside home in Australia and founded a school for orphans and destitute children. She bought a caravan and towed it into a warzone in north Uganda. She began to teach 50 war traumatised children under a tree. Twenty years later 7000+ children are daily educated, fed, medicated in IGF schools. 400 Ugandan staff, many IGF graduates, are building a new generation, rescuing destitute children from the ashes of war.
