In many African societies Children occupy a very unique and privileged position and that for the full harmonious development of their personality; the child should grow up in a family Environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love, guidance and understanding! The loss of parents confronts a child with immerse psychological and social problems reducing the child’s chance of starting, continuing or completing school. They require care in regard to physical, mental, moral and social development.
Rural parts of Uganda have got large number of orphans than urban centres because people living in rural areas are not so sensitized on prevention methods of HIV/AIDS. The age of orphans, however, is fairly consistent across parts of the country.
Despite of the efforts by the government and non government organisations to improve the lives of the children, social indicators continue to show a decline in social and economic welfare of children. Also low levels of education among the whole population of the community has also been attributed to the increasing number of Orphan children as a result of HIV and AIDS scourge, poverty and poor health conditions. Uganda is now with over two million orphans living at risk according to UORDP-the orphanage programme.
There is then, a great need of working to create sustainable change by proving the quality of life for the children in desperate need for the proper growth of this nation.
How we want to solve the problem.
We have been working with four orphans and we have identified a number of orphans & street children with a great need for food, shelter and education facilities. We are arranging for a bigger home, teaching facilities in nearby schools & providing home tuitions, health checkup, medicines, cosmetics and other needs for 30 children for the start?

They will get love & affection as if their parents provides. Their confidence level will increase & become good asset to the community. They are developed physically & psychologically & made as good & productive citizens. Other expected outcomes are:
30 orphans and vulnerable children counselled, educated and stabilized psychologically. They will be inspired and show humanity towards the community.

Once we secure the funds we plan to build a permanent home for these children. We hope in the next years to come we shall set a learning facility to accommodate about 500 disadvantaged children.
