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.

major departments: Child
Welfare, and AIDS affected children and family support programme.
