Challenge

One of every five children in Uganda is in especially difficult circumstances and many are between 5 and 15 years of age. Communities and households are finding it too difficult to give the care and support to the over whelming number of Orphans and other Vulnerable children. This is due to poverty, Natural calamities like drought and floods that regularly destroy crops and leave communities in famine, killer diseases like HIV/AIDS and malaria that cause high death rates in Uganda.

Solution

We provide Scholarships, Scholastic materials, Nutrition, medicines and Healthcare to starving children living in remote villages of Eastern Uganda. Older vulnerable children are enrolled in non formal education/Vocational. Children care takers are trained in nutrition, primary health care and the importance of education in the life of a Vulnerable child. We link children to Health centers and hospitals for management of complications notably epilepsy, vision impairness and physical disability.

Long-Term Impact

Educated 1,000 children will increase literacy level and in the long run, reducing poverty and death rates that are related with illiteracy. Vocational training will reduce unemployment and its associated problems like poverty. Healthcare, treatment of diseases and nutrition will reduce deaths caused by curable diseases like malaria and malnutrition. HIV/AIDS care and treatment will control stigma and provide physical and psychological support to children and families affected by the scourge.
