Protect Vulnerable Refugee Children in Kampala

by People for Peace and Defence of Rights

Summary

This project seeks to be an alternative solution to protect vulnerable refugee children in Kampala in particular and in Uganda in general. The international community has been active in refugee issues through the presence of the UNHCR which developed a policy for urban refugees in 2009 but which is lacking practical activities on the ground. Access to education is the best way to help these children and make this policy fruitful and meaningful to refugees children in urban areas in Uganda.

Challenge

As Uganda continue receiving the influx of refugees from many countries, there has been a problem of their social development, local integration and helping to access services. The Uganda government came up with the Refugee Act 2006 which is the new law on refugees and the UNHCR put the 2009 policy on urban refugees. These legal frame works have not yet been implemented on ground and this has exposed refugees to numerous human rights abuses and the most vulnerable are the refugee children.

Solution

It will create awareness about refugee children rights in Kampala and the necessity of a collective responses for the protection of refugee children especially young girls. This project will provide primary education to 250 refugee each year which we believe is one among the best way to protect them. It will set up a parliament for children to make them have a voice during the decision making process by the government and the UNHCR, provide shelter, food and medical care to them.

Long-Term Impact

A sense a community responsibility to solve the problems by the community itself as it will show that the community members have to be pro active, think about what they can do to respond positively to the needs of the community instead of complaining and being non active. It will solve the most problem affecting members of the community especially women who are worried about the future of their children if they don't access education in this world of today.
