Welcome to Help Africa
WHO WE ARE
Help Africa is an indigenous NGO founded by Kim Madsen in 2009 and registered in 2011 with the National Board for Non Government Organisations under the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD) in Uganda.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
Uganda has a population of 45 million people of which 56% are children, 11.5% are orphans and 38% are vulnerable children.
Help Africa works with utmost transparency, impartiality and passion towards transforming lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda through provision of education, health care and other essential basic necessities in life.
We mainly operate in the city slums i.e Katanga slum being the biggest and areas outside Kampala.
The Organisation works closely with the local authorities in indentifying the neediest children for the program. Registration for sponsorship is free of charge and Accountability is our key value.
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.
