Summary

This project will build a residential home for up to 15 orphaned, vulnerable or abandoned children in need of immediate care, support and protection living in the village of Kassanda, Uganda. This home will also have a guest room to house volunteers that come in support of assisting these children or KCA and will provide needed resources to continue and develop or expand new programs.

Challenge

Lack of government support services leaves 1 million orphaned children in Uganda without necessities such as food, water, medical care or adequate housing. HIV/AIDS and chronic illness of parents, coupled with lack of adequate medical treatment increases abandoned or orphaned children. It also leaves many to be raised by aging grandparents who have little or no source of income to provide for them.

Solution

KCA's purpose is to help assist vulnerable children including housing. Many in the village come to KCA as we are the only help available within walking distance. This home's vision is to provide emergency, safe shelter as situations arise. Assessments will be made and every effort made to transition children back to family members. Residential care in small, family-style environments has proven ideal for the emotional and physical development of children.

Long-Term Impact

The realized impact for a vulnerable child has many effects. Giving peace and security so their emotional and spiritual needs are met will reduce behavioral and emotional problems. Having their health needs met reduces malnutrition, injury or mortality and early sexual activity. Their academic achievement is better as chronic stress impacts their ability to learn and education is at very core to break the cycle of poverty.
