MAIN ACTIVITIES

Since its inception the project has been running its child welfare programs by taking advantage of the rich culture practiced throughout the Ugandan society.  This is a system whereby orphans and childcare is interacted in the extended families of widowed mothers, aunts and uncles, grandparents and in rare cases close family friends.  This method of community childcare avoids dismantling the social, cultural network that exists within the Uganda society.

The program is run under two major departments:  Child Welfare, and AIDS affected children and family support programme.

(1)    Child Welfare Department

The child Welfare Department coordinates all activities related to the total needs of the children.  Areas of emphasis include to care for the needs of children, cover educational sponsorship, primary health care, medical welfare, family support, spiritual counseling, career and moral guidance, as well as school and village church outreach through music, dance and drama also video shows.

AIDS affected children and Family Support Program

The Organization has intensions to launch  the AIDS children and family support program responsible to the outcry of the community towards the dreadful disease AIDS. It is claiming hundreds and some children due to AIDS background have been recruited in as ongoing child welfare program.  At the same time AIDS awareness seminars are being held in schools, villages and religious institutions for preventive purposes and producing behavioural change among the children.          

(2)    Finance and Administration Department

The Finance and Administration Department coordinates secretarial services, central store keeping, cash receipts, payments and financial management issues.  It exists for the smooth running of the organization.
