The aim of Kids Club Kampala is to bring hope and love to vulnerable children and to transform poor communities in Uganda. Founded in 2009, Kids Club Kampala was set up to overcome the lack of hope and self-esteem of children living in situations of extreme poverty, and works to bring about sustainable changes through various development projects and supporting basic needs.
Kids Club Kampala works with some of the most vulnerable and poor communities in the urban slums in and surrounding Kampala, Uganda, currently reaching over 4000 children and their families every week. The children that we are working with come from extremely poor households and the conditions in Kampala’s slums are shocking. People face problems of overcrowding, poor sanitation, insufficient shelter and food insecurity on a daily basis. Many families survive on just one meal per day and cannot afford to send their children to school. In addition to this many children have been orphaned, neglected or simply abandoned as a result of poverty or sickness.
Currently working in 18 communities across Uganda, Kids Club Kampala is making a huge difference in the lives of so many children and individuals. We are passionate about empowering these children and communities, letting them know they are loved and are worth something, and helping them to overcome their situations of poverty.
