STAFF’S SERVICE TO THE CHILDREN

 Another Hope Children’s Ministries (AHCM), envisions an improved quality of life for the children. It has done this through the availability of consistent, caring and diligent staff which includes Directors, caretakers, social workers, administrators, education officers, among others. The social service workforce can be broadly defined as a variety of workers-paid and unpaid.  These child advocates work at multiple levels of the system and work across different sectors such as Health, Education, and Justice to provide more integrated, comprehensive services. Services include family support and early intervention, child education, child protection to address abuse and neglect, and alternative care for children separated from their family of origin. Their tireless presence and quick response to these children’s needs has created an enormous change in all aspects of the children’s lives.Their health has greatly improved, they have become enlightened, and they now possess a strong sense of autonomy since they’re self-esteem has grown. Importantly, the sponsorship that comes from our kind-hearted and generous sponsors helps us hire workers that aid in reaching the above services to the children.

Your sponsorship helps these children have a sustainable life.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. It also includes having access to drinking water, healthy foods and beverages, clean and safe environment, appropriate clothes, healthcare, mental stimulation, access to the outdoors, and loving relationships.

  Beneficiaries telling their story

 I am very excited and overjoyed by the Christmas package delivered to me by AHCM staff. This has showed great love between our sponsors and us that they thought of us and sent us such gifts in order to pass through the Christmas festival happily with our families. I thank our dear sponsors and Directors plus the staff for caring for us

 I am one of the young girls and among the luckiest who got an opportunity of being added to the AHCM scholarship program. I had lost hope of going back to school because my mother is jobless since one of her hands was amputated after a fire accident. She didn’t have any hope of getting money again to take me to school, and I was saddened by the fact that most of my mates were going back to school and I was at home. I am very grateful for this new opportunity granted to me. AHCM has provided for my scholastic materials and tuition. This is a great chance for me to study and complete. I thank our dear sponsors and Directors plus the staff for their efforts for this to work out.

A BED THAT GIVES  COMFORT

As Another Hope Children’s Ministries (AHCM), we want to see an improved quality of life for the children. One of the ways we do this is through provision of accommodation. With accommodation comes a bed children rest on at night. Given their situations, it has to be so comfortable that it makes children forget all their worries. A bed is a possession one can have thus it makes our children feel that they have their own space.

In addition to that, our children are taught how to take good care of their beds and spaces so they grow into being responsible adults who respect what they are given. They know it is not a right but rather a privilege that many children don’t have access to.

In September, we were blessed with new beddings as the old ones were worn out. Many of our youngest children received new mattresses and are so happy about it.

Your sponsorship helps AHCM give hope to children as their needs are met, and they are shown that their future is bright.

Beneficiary tells a story

I am one of the young boys and among the luckiest who got a new mattresses and covers for our beds. I had an old and torn mattress which could give me sleepless nights, and I admired other children’s beds. I love my new bed. I can now sleep well and I when Iwake up, my body is all fine; it does not ache anymore in the morning. I thank our dear sponsors and Directors plus the staff for taking care of us.

I personally was not given a new mattress because mine is still in good condition, but I am so happy for those that received one. Weeks ago, some girls used to come to my bed because it was more comfortable than theirs, and they wanted us to share it. This limited my own space and theirs too. Having gotten new mattresses of their own; it is giving them a sense of owning something- a comfortable bed and their own space.

The beddings do not only give comfort to children but also give a sense of ownership.

Thanks so much sponsors for your continued love and care for the children

Because we believe every life matters, we give a child shelter in times of need even when our resources are limited. Most times we find ourselves with abandoned children that we hadn’t planned for in our custody, because protection of children from worst forms of abuse is our core value at Another Hope Children’s Ministries. Whenever we are called upon by government officials, we respond positively in such instances. We take them into temporary custody as we search for their parents/relatives. From January to May 2021 we registered six (2 boys and 4 girls) .So far efforts to locate their families have been fruitless. The children are between 2 to 17 years old. Different circumstances forced these children into the children’s home. Some of the reasons why children end up in children’s homes are security, child labor rescue, abandonment (most common), disagreements between parents, and getting lost. Because of the sponsorship that provides another hope project a 2 year old boy who had been abandoned by his mum was enrolled onto Another Hope Children’s support. This young boy was abandoned by the mother at a friend’s home when he was only about 10months old. A friend to this boy’s biological mother reported it. She said the mother told her she was going to the shop to buy some milk for the baby but she never came back. Through the PSWO of Nansana, this child was referred to us, and we kept him. . Now he has grown into a healthy boy and has learnt how to speak. The availability of other young ones has made it possible for him to catch up as he plays and associates with them. We believe he will be able to join school when the kindergartens open. • In another situation, we received an 11 year old girl in April. She was recorded as a missing child, in a town called Naluvuule in Wakiso District. She says she was leaving with her uncle and always inside the fenced compound and when she went out to move around, she got lost and didn’t know the name of the village. She was brought to the police by an old woman, and then was referred to Another Hope Children’s Ministries. We are still keeping her as we look for her family. So far she has been a good child, and we have hopes of finding her family to resettle her. Thanks so much for your support towards sponsorship that provides another hope. So much has been achieved. Without your support, many children would fail to have a place to stay, to eat, and to get medical care.

MAKING ANOTHER HOPE CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES SUSTAINABLE THROUGH LIVESTOCK AND POULTRY FARMING.

Sustainability is an ongoing process that involves the interaction between different strategic, organizational, programmatic, social and financial elements. Prioritizing sustainability guarantees the future generations a habitable world that they can enjoy. A self-sustaining system is one that can maintain its self by independent efforts. Experience tells us that financial sustainability is key for the long-term survival and effectiveness of institutions in the fields of serving communities and meeting their visions but the challenge is how to achieve such levels of financial sustainability. Financial sustainability of an NGO depends on its ability to diversify income and access new funds.

At another Hope Children’s Ministries, we target becoming sustainable through livestock and poultry farming among others. Livestock farming can be described as the economic activity which involves the raising of domestic animals for human consumption and obtaining meat, milk among others. Livestock farming is considered more dependable because it involves raring of small ruminants with high rates of reproduction and growth and these can provide regular sources of income from sales. Fifty-eight percent of households in Uganda depend on livestock for their livelihood and because it is not seasonal, it is one of the push factors for us to take it on.

Another Hope Children’s Ministries has different animals being reared which include: cows, goats and rabbits. We also have a poultry farm with 598-layer hens which haven’t yet started laying eggs. Emphasis is put on livestock farming and poultry farming because we believe they is much productivity and the children gain skills of looking after them which skills they can use in their lives after Another Hope Children’s Ministries. Training have been held engaging the staff and children in poultry care and goats looking forward for more.

We are also looking forward to making the farm a demonstration farm where trainees and interns will be charged to access the farm and be trained. This will still bring income to the organization hence getting us to the plan of being sustainable.

We apparently have three on site, one bull and two heifers which conceived and one will be giving birth in March 2021. The cow will start producing milk which will help to improve on the consumption of nutritious meals by the children. The excess milk will be sold and the income helps to meet other needs like the medical bills for the children.

Rabbits and Goats.

There are five rabbits on site being taken care of by children assisted by the farm assistants. Because rabbits give birth in a very short period of time, they accumulate very fast and the raising numbers can be sold off to bring in money which can meet other needs.

The goats on site are five and two of them are expect, two female youth which are ready for meting and one male to serve the females. We shall have the goats accumulate in numbers as well very fast.

Poultry Farm.

 Efforts have been put in the poultry farm to ensure that there is productivity when the time for laying eggs comes. 608 birds where brought in on the 08th/01/2021 and apparently, they are 598 in a very good and promising condition. These will be providing eggs for a minimum of one and half years which will be sold and bring in income to meet the costs of the organization and feed the children as well.

We have some poultry that has been laying eggs that we have sold off and now these poultry have become off layers and we are apparently selling them as we hope for the new poultry to start laying eggs.

All this would not have been possible of we did not have your support. Thanks so much for the great support rendered to us.
