Who we are

Our vision, mission and core values are at the heart of everything we do to help vulnerable children
in Uganda. 

About Uganda

Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world,  with 42% of the population living below the poverty line. Over half of the total population of Uganda are food insecure, and over 30% of adults have never accessed education.  Uganda also has one of the youngest populations in the world, with an average age of 16. 

Over 5 million people live in Uganda’s slums. Life isn’t easy here; there are very high rates of unemployment, predominantly among young people and women. Household incomes are unstable, and many families survive on just one meal a day. 80% of Kampala’s slum dwellers don’t have access to a toilet. Eight million children in Uganda are vulnerable to harm and are at risk of abuse and abandonment as a result of poverty.

About us

Our vital projects provide for both children and their family's immediate needs and strengthen their futures through feeding, protecting, educating and skilling. We work in partnership with our passionate team in Uganda, who lead and implement projects that are a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable children in the world. We are currently supporting over 300,000 people throughout 12 slum communities across Kampala, the capital of Uganda. But the global cost of living crisis means our vital services have never been more needed. 

We are passionate about empowering children and families and helping them to survive and thrive!

passionately care about our beneficiaries, our supporters, our team and the work that we do. We take time to celebrate our achievements and to focus on the positive.



We have big plans and big dreams for the  children, young people, families and communities we are supporting. We are not afraid to set ambitious targets and work hard to deliver results. We aim to build teams that are motivated, engaged and passionate, delivering the absolute best they can.



We strive to make our money work hard. We evaluate effectiveness, implement best practices and present results to ensure transparency while delivering the most we can with the resources available. We are honest, open, reliable and communicate clearly.



We are flexible, adaptable and open to change. We listen and respond quickly to our communities needs when they arise, pivoting our programming to where it is most needed. We value all feedback as a means of evaluating our performance, and constantly seek to do things better.

Guiding principals



Kids Club Kampala is an organisation founded on Christian beliefs and values. It’s our faith that motivates us to love all people and to serve the poor. Everything we do is not for personal gain, but for the benefit of those living in poverty that we support. We seek to work with like-minded people to help vulnerable children achieve their God-given potential.



We value all children and uphold the rights of the child in all that we do. All of our programmes and projects focus on bringing hope, love and positive outcomes for vulnerable children’s lives. We strive to help all vulnerable children regardless of religion, ethnicity, gender or background.


Community led

We empower local people to be active in their own development and to make a difference in their own communities. We believe in asking people what their needs are and how best we can help them, and giving people the space to come up with creative solutions themselves.


Family based

We believe that the best place for a child is to be within a loving family. We passionately advocate for family based care. We do not support the institutionalisation of children in any way. We speak up for those who can't, giving a voice to the voiceless. To do this, we must be communicating and engaging at all levels - from telling individual stories to advocating on behalf of those we represent.



We let children to just be children, through having fun and creating a positive environment while keeping them safe. We commit to only sharing positive stories of change in our external marketing and communications. We take a positive ‘can do’ approach to our work. Our staff and volunteers take the time to have fun and socialise together.
