Kids Club Kampala works to overcome the lack of hope and self-esteem of children living in situations of extreme poverty by empowering communities to bring about sustainable changes. We work in partnership with our team in Uganda who passionately lead and implement our projects which are a life line to some of the most vulnerable children in the world. The children that we are working with come from extremely poor households and the conditions in Kampala’s slums are shocking. The slums are notorious for drug and alcohol abuse, violent crime and abject poverty. People face problems of overcrowding, poor sanitation, insufficient shelter and food insecurity on a daily basis. Many children have been orphaned, neglected or simply abandoned as a result of poverty or sickness. We are passionate about empowering these children and communities, letting them know they are loved and helping them to overcome their situations of poverty.
We support vulnerable kids in Uganda by providing for both their immediate needs and strengthening their futures through educating, feeding, protecting, and skilling. Over the last 10 years we have provided 1.5 million hot meals to hungry children; free education for 1,000 children; counselling for 3,000 vulnerable young people; vital skills training for 700 women; rescued 100 children from abandonment and reunited 60 children back with loving families. Our vision is to see children’s lives transformed, communities empowered and poverty reduced throughout Uganda.
