About Us

Shule Foundation launched the Watoto Mtaani (street kids in Swahili) Project in Uganda to break the cycle of street life and mentor street-connected boys into becoming gentlemen.

Boys living on its streets are some of the most marginalized globally. Abhorred and mistreated, they are vulnerable to physical, mental, and sexual abuse, and many turn to sniffing (a combination of airplane fuel and industrial glue) to dull the pain and, put, "to forget." These invisible children sleep on the ground under makeshift shelters, eat only what they can scavenge, and lack access to even the most basic services — including showers, which cost money.

Shule conducts outreaches, runs a drop-in-center, operates a halfway house, and has a farm.

At our drop-in-center we provide the boys a place to shower, wash their clothes, eat nutritious meals get medical care. We offer skills training workshops, English, math, computer, and chess lessons. In addition, the boys participate in sports, dance, arts, and craft activities, along with group and one-on-one counseling.

The halfway house acts as an interim home for boys serious about leaving street life behind.

For the boys who successfully graduate from our rehabilitation program, we reunite them with their families and sponsor their education - formal or vocational.
