Rebuilding the lives of street children in Uganda



The project provides 850 street children with the emotional, physical, spiritual, educational and economic needs to facilitate their transition off the streets and back into the community.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are around 5,000 children between the ages of 7 and 20 living on the streets of Kampala, Uganda. Many are orphaned or have been abandoned or abused. By building trust and an understanding of each boy's circumstances and character, staff can facilitate a process by which children feel valued, gain confidence and accept support in equipping themselves with the social and educational tools they require to overcome the past, reintegrate into society and take the future into their own hands.

How will this project solve this problem?

The children Retrak work with benefit from a comprehensive set of services that includes a sports program, feeding and emergency refuge, medical care, a learning center, counseling, resettlement, foster care and microenterprise development.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will encourage 850 children currently living on the streets to realize their potential and make a transition from the streets back to family and community life.
