We are delighted to announce that we have adopted Kids Club Kampala as our Charity of the Year.
The charity originally ran clubs on Saturdays for the children of slum communities in Kampala, Uganda. Over the years further work with children means that they support education for the poorest chldren, as well as feeding. More fun comes from music and football projects. One of the effects is that children are in a safe place.
Uganda has a large number of children separated from their parents (for a variety of reasons) and Kids Club Kampala’s Ewafe project works to reintroduce them safely to their families. This in a country with few social workers.
Other projects work with women and teens, including on subjects such as HIV prevention.
This is not one of those “fat cat” charities, and the head office is run on a shoestring. Importantly, it is community led, so it is not a case of the rich West patronising Africa.
One of the needs the charity has is for regular funding, and one of the best ways to help is by regular monthly giving. For further information, see http://www.kidsclubkampala.org/projects/
