The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child details how the needs of children become their rights. We are helping children and communities to meet their basic human needs by providing food, clothing, toys, soap, and other essential items that they would otherwise go without.
We provide a hot, nutritious meal for all children who attend our weekly Kids Club activities at each of our centres. We also provide a daily meal for every child attending our Education Project. Food parcels are given to the neediest families, who struggle to feed themselves and their children.
Clothing and Shoes
For children in Uganda, receiving new clothes is a great luxury and a very exciting opportunity. We regularly give out clothes, shoes, blankets, toys and other essential items to the children, which have been kindly donated from people all over the world.
Even when families can afford to send their children to school, students are often unable to participate fully due to a lack of essential school materials. We provide children in our communities with necessary school supplies such as exercise books, pencils and pens. This supports their learning by giving them the tools to put into practice what they have been taught and, as a result, improves their overall lesson retention.
Health and Sanitation
We regularly donate mosquito nets, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste to the children in our communities. These items are vital to help fight infections and disease that, unfortunately, come with living in the unhygienic and unsanitary conditions of Kampala’s slums.
Toys and Games
Receiving new toys and games to play with is a huge treat for the children and goes a long way to bring hope, love and joy into their lives, helping to put a smile on their faces.
