Summary

Children with incarcerated parents in Uganda lack a support system. This project will empower the child, caregiver and the incarcerated parent for sustainable positive impact, interrupting the criminal behavior cycle. 47 at risk (at promise) children will be kept in school, their caregivers trained in commercial farming for sustainable livelihood, and their incarcerated parents taught parenting and craft making. Also, parent-child visitation trips will be conducted to build family cohesion.

Challenge

No formal data exists about what becomes of children whose parent/guardian is incarcerated in Uganda. The number one concern of Incarcerated parents we interviewed was the plight of their children and the request that we trace them. After the survey, we found 63 of 89 children no longer in school, 85 lived with someone struggling to provide a meal, 81 lacked basic necessities, while 11 were said to be missing. This project will generate a positive future of 47 children with incarcerated parents

Solution

The project ensures academic enrollment and supervision for the children by providing school fees, scholastic material and daily tutoring. Children also receive counseling, life skills, Family Life and Sexuality Education and lifetime individual sports. Caregivers are trained in an income generating skill and given a startup kit. Children visit their parents to build a healthy family relationship where it's safe for the child, while the parents are prepared for successful return to community

Long-Term Impact

Educated and industrious children empowered and nurtured to attain their full potential. Improved family cohesion. Caregivers that are able to support and provide for their family, thus reducing the rate of recidivism and crime. Reduced rate of child marriage and trafficking. These children's success will also lead to mindset change among community members that say crime is hereditary, thus influence community support for children with incarcerated parents. Decent work for formerly incarcerated
