OUR VISION, MISSION AND VALUES.
To provide a framework for the enjoyment of rights and fulfilment of responsibities to the orphans and other vulnerable children to change their lives for the best.
A society where all orphans and the other vulnerable children live to their full potential as their rights and aspirations are fully fulfilled.
To extend love and compassion towards the orphans and other vulnerable children with utmost Transparency, Unity and Integrity.
What We Do
Education plays a big role in the elimination of poverty in Uganda; it increases chances to a better life thus transforming lives of the orphans and vulnerable children. Before sponsorship, these children attend poor schools in the slums and others are school dropouts due to lack of school fees. After sponsorship, the children attain a good stable education at our partner boarding schools with all the basic school requirements.
A year has 3 school terms and the sponsor families receive Report cards of their sponsor children for a follow up on the performance and conduct. Our sponsorship program starts from Nursery to University level for those sponsors who would love to provide a complete education to the sponsor children for good employment opportunities.
Practical and social skills play a big role in the children’s personal development through promotion of their skills and talents.
Our children take part in exciting cultural dances with colourful traditional costumes, traditional instrumentation and Original Western gospel and African songs. We have managed to realize our children’s potential, personalities and talents through Music, Dance, Drama, Chess, Art and Craft.
Help Africa imparts the children with computer skills in the use of internet and networking platforms, Ms-Word, PowerPoint, Excel and typing to create problem solvers who can compete in the job market after education.
