Summary

STREET KIDS AND ALL THE CHALLENGES THEY GO THROUGH. They are usually dirty, they eat leftovers on dust bin, and they wear torn clothes and usually smell. We call them "ABAANA BOKUNGUDO", while foreigners call them Street Kids. No one ever wants to associate with them in anyway. When foreigners or tourists come to the country, they are transported like bags of potatoes and hidden because they bring shame. How embarrassing is it to treat street children without dignity and respect?

Challenge

When the people in the community are not interested or cannot afford to take in a child without a family? A saying that a children's home is not necessary does not apply to every vulnerable child, there are those who are left on the side of the road shortly after they are born and larger poorer communities will have a higher number of orphans without a parent or family. Not needing an orphanage would certainly be best, but we can't deny that their presence is better than nothing.

Solution

ONE MEAL AT A TIME, That's where I start: When all you know is hunger it becomes all you know of life. it hollows out your body, weakening your immune system and leading to disease. Most of us are fortunate_we don't know what it's like to be that hungry. Cissy children's outreach is a program under Taasa orphan program which gives a meal to abandoned children at-least once at a time.

Long-Term Impact

We raise children who are orphaned and unwanted, who would otherwise scream at this moment to survive in the dangerous streets of Kampala, We take them up with open loving arms, which give them a decent education and a house of love. The idea is to give them access to the best available settings until the Taasa Orphan Program is able to build some of our own. Up to now, we have had tremendous success in caring for and shaping the lives of many talented young people from the street to family life
