Who we are

Kids of Uganda
”We believe in sustainable investments for long-term change”
OUR MISSION

Kids of Ugandas mission is to give vulnerable children a brighter and safer future. We do so by supporting the local community with self-help tools and opportunities to create long-term change, and thus create a stable, safe environment for the children to grow up in.

The organisation focuses on a family support program, aiming to give families the tools needed to make sustainable investments that secure a long-term income. Additionally, we organise workshops and carry out specific projects to benefit the local community.

Our values

Long-term focus

We help develop the local society in a sustainable way by giving vulnerable families basic, fixed-term support. Our staff provides education and advice to ensure that the families use the grant to investments that remain. With our help people are transforming into successful entrepreneurs that can sustain a safe family economy.

Responsible support

All work we do is done in consultation with key people in the local community. We always hire local companies and buy locally produced goods from local traders. We want to support the Ugandan economy, not slow it down by, for example, bringing in donated goods from abroad that compete with and harm local trade.

Children’s rights first

Promoting children’s rights is a key part of our work. Meaning we always consider the best interests of the child in order to give them security, love and a brighter future. By ensuring that all children we support go to school, we help them grow up to become successful, strong individuals.

THE FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM

A LOVING FAMILY

Our main goal is to give vulnerable children a loving and safe upbringing. The foundation of that is making sure that the children stay with family or relatives who love and care for them.

 

EDUCATION AND ADVISORY

Our staff give parents education and coaching to make sustainable, long-term investments (e.g. start a restaurant, open a shop or invest in cattle). However, the families decide for themselves where the money goes, which allows them to develop into successful entrepreneurs and thus contribute to a healthy financial development locally. Additionally, we arrange workshops in e.g. health care, HIV, female empowerment and personal finance.

 

A FIVE YEAR PLAN

The family support program is set to five years, with financial support during the first two. During this time the families get the tools and help to find and create an everyday that ensures a long-term, sustainable source of income. After the first two years the support continues in the shape of home visits and coaching.
