We currently provide 250,000 meals each year for malnourished children, access to education for 700 children, sustainable income generation projects for 250 women, and children's activities and social support for up to 4000 children across 18 disadvantaged communities in Uganda.

Challenge

Kampala's slums are notorious for drug and alcohol abuse and violent crime, poor sanitation and abject poverty. Families survive on just one meal per day and cannot afford to send their children to school. Out-of-school children are left unsupervised during the day whilst their parents try to make a living, and without a daily purpose or safe space to go these children become even more at risk. Many of the children that we work with have been abused, neglected, orphaned or simply abandoned.

Solution

Kids Club Kampala provides children with a safe place to go to and the chance to play and enjoy being children, alongside receiving an education and having their basic needs met. Our numerous child empowerment programmes provide children from the slums with a safe and loving environment in which to they can play and have fun, develop skills, talk about their struggles or worries and receive love and attention, away from the challenges and difficulties of their everyday lives.

Long-Term Impact

We are having a large impact in the 18 communities that we work in and are supporting over 4000 vulnerable children. Our programmes not only help children to feel empowered, gain skills and a basic education, but also provide children with a safe environment and sense of community, away from the dangers of slum life. Through running these projects, we are also able to identify children who are at risk or in need of emergency help. We are empowering children and reducing poverty across Uganda.
