Challenge

Child abandonment. Which is mainly a result of children losing their parents due to illnesses such as (HIV/AIDS and/or malaria) or the result of poverty associated with single parenthood related to the commercial sex trade. Mubende district, being a transit point going up to DR. Congo, has many sex workers along the roads, who are making a living from prostitution and often do not have the necessary resources to raise their children. Hence leaving them on the streets.

Solution

This project will help to establish a "Home of Hope" a safe environment and shelter for abandoned, vulnerable children by securing children's well being. In an environment with care and support from staff, infants and children will develop trust and healthy bonds with peers and adults. The Home will focus on receiving children who lost their parents during infancy due to illness, or who were abandoned by their parents, or who were born to vulnerable mothers ie those with disabilities.

Long-Term Impact

The home will provide infant care and serve as a transition shelter for the children until we can determine their immediate relatives, family members, legal guardian and secure the safe living environment for them. When foster families are not found, children will stay with us for a period no longer than 6 years. Children who fail to get foster/adoption parents by age of 5, will be assisted to get further education through a network with the government and other partnered organizations.
