About Us

About the Community Hive Organization:
Community Hive Organization abbreviated (CHO) is an independent youth led Community Based not for profit development Organization with its offices in Wakiso District in the Central Region of Uganda. CHO was established in December 2010 by a group of two qualified social workers with wide knowledge and experience in community development to provide support services for the general wellbeing and
maintenance of the most marginalized older persons, Orphans and Vulnerable Children under their care.

CHO is committed to improving the general wellbeing of older persons, Orphans and Vulnerable Children under their care. This is a legally registered entity with the Directorate of Community Based Services, Wakiso District and acquired a CBO status with Registration Number.WCBO/1031/10. However after the renewal, CHO acquired
a new Registration Number. N.OWCBO/628/14.

CHO establishment was based on our history and experience as people who grew up under the care and guidance of our grandparents despite their historical vulnerability to socio-economic constraints, abuse and neglect. CHO offices are situated on
Zirobwe –Namulonge road within Kiwenda town in Busukuma Sub County.
Community Hive Organization was established to undertake socio-economic, education and health care interventions that reduce vulnerability to poverty, communicable and Non Communicable diseases, hunger, stigma and discrimination and other situations, and to contribute to creation of community social network
systems that promote teamwork building, community strengths/ ability identification,towards improving the general wellbeing of marginalized older persons, Orphans and other Vulnerable Children under their care.

Our portfolio of work is based on the values of Christianity and older persons’ motivation and obligation towards building the ability of individuals and communities to draw on a range of assets to effect change, particularly in rural areas where livelihoods of older persons depend entirely on subsistence agriculture mainly using rudimentary technology. Sighting on various researches conducted by the
Government of the Republic of Uganda and NGOs, it is reported that access to socioeconomic opportunities, good hygiene and proper environmental sanitation practices, basic education, health care, HIV/AIDS services including other social services is almost impossible for older persons in rural areas of Uganda. We believe that communities and older persons understand the dynamics and trends of their challenges; they have the abilities and strengths but only need empowerment to respond to such concerns as they wait for additional assistance.

Mission: We are committed to provide support for the welfare and maintenance of older persons and their families.
