Challenge

There are over 50 million orphaned or abandoned children in Africa, and in Uganda, as in all of Africa, children make up more than half the population. Many of these children are disillusioned and disenfranchised, yet they also carry great hope. Through three, sub-basic, residential homes and basic educational services, with little to no financial aid or help, Mama Africa helps children as young as one through young adulthood develop their potential so they can lead fulfilling lives.

Solution

This project will shelter over 150 former street children. It will include a community medical clinic, psychosocial support and activities such as sports, arts, and a nature club. In addition to academic and vocational programs, Mama Africa provides education and training in entrepreneurship and life skills. It will be a Christian 'home' to many children now and in the future, enabling us to adequately equip the present and future generations for the good of Uganda!

Long-Term Impact

Mama Africa is collaborating with individuals, friends, organizations, churches, the private sector and universities to develop effective, sustainable models for the care and education of street-dwelling children so they can be healthy, productive members of their communities.
