Tampon tax? Try using rags!

Girls living in the slums of Kampala have limited access to clean water and have nowhere safe and private to wash. This means that girls have no privacy from family members or neighbours. They also do not have private toilets and must pay to use public long drops within the slum. This means that girls are literally choosing between feeding themselves and paying for sanitary items and the use of a toilet during their time of month.

Winter Ball Auction Prizes!

On Friday 11th November we are holding our first ever black tie Winter Ball. As part of this night we will be having an auction of exclusive items available to bid on, and all money raised goes directly to supporting the work of Kids Club Kampala in Uganda. If you aren't able to make it to the Winter Ball yourself, you can place your bids on our various lots by emailing info@kidsclubkampala.org. 

Rethinking Child Abandonment in Uganda

Research conducted by Jessica Peppiate for Kids Club Kampala looking into local attitudes towards childcare interventions in Uganda, showed that local communities viewed childcare institutions negatively. Reasons for this included not receiving feedback on the child, the child being separated from their family, the potential for corrupt practices and lack of proper care for children.

Our Ewafe Children Need Your Help!

We believe that children ultimately belong in families and we are working hard to reunite children with their families or provide them with loving foster care. We need to hire more social workers, take trips into far off villages to search for families, recruit and train foster families and provide ongoing support. Without your help these children may not have the chance to be part of a family again.
