Children are at risk of separation

COVID-19 has had a detrimental effect on children and families in Uganda, many of them forced to give up their children to orphanages in the hope of a better life.

 

These families are extremely vulnerable, marginalised and at a very high risk of abuse, neglect and isolation.

 

Without appropriate support, children are at risk of being placed in an orphanage, even though they have a family. Those children currently living in orphanages are condemned to a life with no community and a greatly reduced chance to fulfil their potential.

But we have a solution

With your help, we can support families at risk to stay together by providing them with food, housing, education and livelihoods support. 

 

You can help us train a network of community volunteers to keep these families protected.

 

Community volunteers are local champions, ensuring families know about and get referred to services available to them locally.

 

We can work together with local orphanages to reintegrate children and young people back into their biological families and, when that’s not possible or safe, Child’s i trained and approved foster and Ugandan adoptive families.

We need your help

Help us raise £15,000 this December to make sure no child is placed in an orphanage this Christmas. The campaign will launch on the Giving Tuesday, 30 November. 

All donations made between 30 November and 7 December will be doubled until we exhaust our matching pot of £7,500. 

 

Make your gift go twice as far this Christmas. Donate to the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Reintegrate 25 children into families

We work with local orphanages in Makindye division, Mpigi and Tororo districts to reintegrate children from orphanages back into their biological families and, when that’s not possible or safe, Child’s i trained and approved foster and Ugandan adoptive families.

Joy was returned to her aunt after spending 2 years in an orphanage after her mother passed away and maternal grandmother was not able to care for her. We are currently working with 9 orphanages across Uganda to reintegrate children into families.

Train 50 community volunteers

We train local champions to be our eyes in the community, act as gatekeepers to ensure children are safe, and refer any children or families in need of support to our team of social workers.

Community volunteers like Ali support families by delivering food and health supplies.  As a father of 5, Ali says he would like to see children in his community grow up with their families.

“I have been educating families on how to keep safe and encouraging children to stay at home and wash their hands to prevent catching the virus”, he shares.

Support 15 families at risk of separation

Our team of trained social workers regularly visit families.

We support their livelihoods, ensure children are in education, help them building and re-building family and social relationships, support housing and provide medical assistance, as well as ensure they can build sustainable livelihoods to thrive. 

This approach allows us to support mothers like Carol and her baby Luke to receive medical help and receive food packages and milk supplies to keep them safe and healthy during the pandemic.
