Summary

Children belong in families. In Uganda, if a child is born with special needs, it is quite likely they will be abandoned. Families living in poverty struggle to afford basic needs, now compounded by additional care needed for children with special needs. This project will provide appropriately-sized cloth diapers for children living with their families through Ekisa Ministries Community Care Program. When we partner with families to meet basic needs, we can empower families to stay together.

Challenge

Children living with special needs deserve having their basic hygiene needs met. This project will provide 100% diaper coverage to children living with families through Ekisa Ministries Community Care program. When basic hygiene needs are met, dignity, sanitation, hygiene and quality of life are drastically improved for both child and caregiver.

Solution

We provide cloth diapers to children in poverty, whose caregivers have to choose between food, diapers, and medical care.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, medical procedures to increase adoption opportunity for the orphan, special needs children, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.
