What We Do
Amazing Children Uganda gives street children in Uganda the chance to free themselves from poverty and transform their lives by providing opportunities for education.
Our vision for each child entering our programme is that they will become:
Our approach is simple...
The children we support
Our initial project is centred on a community of 200 children in Kampala. They all share the experience of living or working on the street. Most of them are double or single orphans and some of them are affected by HIV/AIDS. Many of them come onto the streets to escape conflict. Their common experience is extreme poverty and even for those who have some education it has been very fragmented.
Under the guidance of our partner, Jaguza Child Care Mission, the children have come together as a distinct community who know and care for each other. Through patient encouragement and dedication, our partner has built the children's trust and developed their basic skills and capacities to engage/re-engage in school.
