Challenge of homeless and orphaned children. . Children's homelessness is a seemingly intractable problem across East Africa, and the challenges to homeless children are unique not only due to their vulnerability but also because they are helpless, particularly in the early childhood. The drastic increase in the number of AIDS orphans has stretched the limits of traditional care requirements for orphans, forcing them into the streets and be involved in unhealthy sustenance use.
- Perform Outreach activities to identify, assist and get children off the street, left alone homeless, orphaned and settle them in care or link them foster families.
- Construction of Residential-Care shelters and the development of Transitional Programmes for the youth preparing to leave care homesteads.
- To provide early intervention programmes that empower children with access to a safe consistent space, family preservation, school attendance with collaboration with local schools, school aftercare, nutritional, life-skill development and therapeutic support services.
- To provide a drop in centre where orphans, homeless kids, street children, of even for those who just come onto the street periodically to beg, can get assistance like showers, food and formal assessment by a social worker.

We believe that one of the greatest differences we can make in Africa is providing sustainable access to clean water. Why water? Because there is a lack of clean water in most rural villages in Africa hence water-borne and water-based diseases are a primary cause of preventable illness and premature deaths in Uganda. Children are particularly the most exposed and affected ones.DONATE NOW
many people in Africa have little or no access to healthcare.Ugam closes this health care gap by connecting those who have with those who hope.

Disabled children in Uganda are often denied their right to education and opportunities for work and training, despite their great ability and desire. A multi-phase plan is being initiated by Ugam Project and the Unit School for disabled in Soroti, Uganda, to help disabled pupils acquire the skills and capital necessary to eventually provide for their own needs and contribute to the local economy with their education.DONATE NOW
