Florence For Youth In Action

Many people are born Humanitarian and to make a difference in the world and Penny Leon is one of them. Born and raised in Uganda her parents were able to feed them but she saw many kids with  no food to eat and clothes to wear.

Inspired by her mother Florence, who raised 20 kids six of her own and fourteen from the neighborhood and family friends. She said to her mother at 9 years that when she grows up , she will not have children of her own. Instead  she will take care of those orphans who needs help. After she finished  school, she moved to United States.

 opened an Organization in 2011, that helps orphans in Uganda. She named her organization Florence For Youth In Action in honor of her  mother and is helping many kids around Uganda, by providing them with free education food, and medical services.

She has raised and become a parent to five orphaned girls which three  of them have now finished university. Penny is a member of Woodland Hills Rotary Club ,CA. She joined the Club because she believed in what they stand for, Service Above Self, and what they do in our communities and around the world.

Penny has surrendered her life for others  as great  calling  from  our God. She has the qualities of love and Marcy as a gift from God. She has a gift of sensing hurting people and then responding to them in unique way to bring compassionate love. She invites you to join her in this journey of faith,courage in serving others.


She has become a voice to the voiceless, and strength to the weak.

Praise God that he crowns us with his love and favor!
