Children

Uganda has been called the 'youngest nation'  due to the fact that approximately half the population is under the age of 18.

Because of the impact of HIV/AIDS, many children are also orphans. We do not run orphanages but focus on strengthening families as they care for orphans.

We do this through -

  • Ante-natal care and immunisation - we take these services into village settings so that all children can benefit and begin their lives in a healthy way. 
  • Treatment when sick - we run an out-patient clinic five days a week where children and adults can be treated for an affordable fee. Read More
  • We also have a programme called Child Educational Sponsorship, to enable orphans and vulnerable children go to school. Read more
