Guidance and Counselling about HIV/AIDS, psychological concerns and others

We give hope by providing reassurance to the vulnerable, that despite all the circumstances surrounding their very existence, God loves and cares for them.

Counseling is mainly done during our weekly Saturday clubs and family visits where we get to interact with the children and their care givers. During these sessions, we bring Child-centered perspectives into the issues that the communities are faced with.

Rescue and Rehabilitation

High levels of poverty and gender-based violence experienced both in rural and urban areas in Uganda often force children out of their homes at a very young age to fend for themselves. Some children have families that are unable to support them, while some are abandoned. On the streets, not only are these children unable to meet their basic needs for food and shelter, but they are exposed to unimaginable circumstances including drug trafficking, degradation, violence and disease.

Over the years, we have rescued children mainly from streets in Kampala, slums and other areas. The rescued children, most of whom are Karamajongs, are provided with food and shelter, as well as medical, psychological and educational support, allowing them to integrate into the school system in a smooth manner.

 

Agricultural Support

The dry Northeastern region of Karamoja has suffered chronic food insecurity punctuated by acute drought shocks and a prolonged conflict resulting in recurrent emergency-level food needs for many decades. Karamoja is classified as one of the world’s poorest areas, with high rates of malnutrition and a disproportionate number (61%) of its 1.2 million people, living in absolute poverty.

Since 2015, we have been implementing a project in the Napak District of Karamoja aiming to avert the hunger and food insecurity problem in the region.

Advocacy for social and economic rights

Social and economic rights; including the right to health, education, access to clean water and sanitation, housing and work (or labor) are considered to be more of privileges than rights in the Ugandan context. This is reflected in the inadequate legal protection for these rights at the domestic level, as well as the attitude of government officials who continue to look at the limited instances where positive steps have been taken to implement social and economic rights as political gifts for which the benefiting community must be grateful.

Our Advocacy campaigns mainly include; fighting against gender-based violence, Advocating for rights of Persons with Albinism (PWAs), Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) and other vulnerable groups.

We have researched and published media articles in various areas including albinism, food insecurity in Karamoja, depression, youth empowerment and so on
