Summary

Nafasi (NWC) is run by KHA. NWC has been providing crisis residential care for babies & children under 5 and support for their vulnerable families. However due to a change in the law, it is no longer able to offer residential facilities at NWC. Consequently KHA is adapting NWC's buildings & resources to operate as a day-care nursery and kindergarten. KHA is launching a new project so that donors can support the work of the day-care centre as soon as it opens its doors in September 2019.

Challenge

Uganda has more than two million orphaned and homeless children. There are many reasons why a child is orphaned or abandoned. Each child and every parent has his or her own unique story. The babies on the streets are in danger of illness, disease, malnutrition and human trafficking. Most young mothers live in poverty and cannot provide for themselves let alone their baby.

Solution

We provide a day-care centre where babies and young children receive much needed loving care, a healthy and balanced diet, clothing, medical care and psychological and developmental attention. We rescue them from the dangers on the streets and give them a new chance to have a normal happy childhood and hope for their future. We support, train and follow- up their mothers empowering them to care for their baby again.

Long-Term Impact

Nafasi Welfare Centre will help reduce the numbers of abandoned babies and infants on the streets of Uganda. We can support 20 children at a time, so there is a constant turnover of children receiving help. Approximately 30 children a year are resettled, followed up and supported where necessary. Our Community Support Programme will help young mothers rebuild their lives and through the training and guidance provided help them establish stable relationships within their community.
