About Us in Child Africa

We are a non-profit organization, since 1991 dedicated to help disadvantaged children in East Africa to enhance their lives through education. With support from sponsor parents we help hundreds of children in Uganda, Africa, with food, clothing, medicine, education and sometimes even homes. With support from sponsor parents around the world, we hope we will help many thousands of children in the years to come.

If you receive a call from a lady called Hunley Smith (or others) about buying land in East Africa, that it is an attempt of FRAUD and has nothing to do with Child Africa. PLEASE BE AWARE!

Child Africa Charity Organization Staff

Julie Solberg
Julie Solberg
Founder and Managing Director

Julie Solberg is a successful business woman as well as in the fulfillment of her dreams. She has managed different companies in Africa over the years and is now at the helm of Child Africa charity organization in Uganda and Kenya. It is during her frequent trips to Africa that she started visualizing her mission - a burning desire to help the children of this continent. Her vision became reality in 1991 when she and her husband Rino founded "Solberg Children's Help Organization", now renamed Child Africa and registered as a non-profit organization. In Child Africa Julie can perform the work that touches her heart the most - giving unfortunate children the key to a brighter future through education.

Julie’s simple message to you:
"It takes so little to reach out and touch the soul of a child. So if you are reading about us right now, just reach out your hand and touch one tiny soul."
