The Problem

THE PROBLEMS 
These children need your support , prayers and chance to Education

Cloth an African child today
    Uganda is one of the countries that has been infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and war for over 20 years.  
As you might imagine, this has tremendously increased the number of orphans in our country.  It is estimated that in Uganda they are over 5 million orphans due to HIV/AIDS.  It is expected that over the next ten years, this number it is likely to double. 
 Many orphans are children of primary school age; these orphans have lost one or both of their parents. They usually live alone or with one or with their extended family. 
This means that it is not uncommon in Uganda that there is typically an orphan living with a large majority of families.


      Many children have been and continue to be traumatized by the loss of their parents.  In Uganda it’s the order of the day to find grandparents surrounded by a fleet of grandchildren, families headed by adolescents, dying adults being nursed by their children, and children scattered among relatives.

YOUR SUPPORT GOES DIRECTLY SUCH CHILDREN
          As a result, many people are considered to be living in poverty, and most of these people are below the age of eighteen.  Poverty has a direct effect on peoples lives, as poor people have little access to health services, education, clean water and many other very important things.


HIS SELLING JACK FRUIT TO GET SCHOLASTIC MATERIALS 
Major obstacles to child survival, development, protection and participation in Uganda include lack of food, water, shelter, health care and education. The UN convention on the Rights of Children contain rights relating to every aspect of children’s lives, including the right to survival, development, and protection and participation in choices relating to their lives.



Orphans need care, including  Feeding,  Health and Sanitation , Vocational trainings and Life skills,  Emotional/psychosocial support, Counseling, Recreation, Religious support, Scholastic materials, Beddings, Utensils, Transport to health units, A roof over their head and of course education  that work as a safety net in the childs life. 
With out supporting and empowering orphans, in the future they will live as beggars on the streets.



 Primary Education

Currently, the government of Uganda has adopted a program called Universal Primary Education (UPE). UPE provides for 3 children per family to attend primary education, up to Grade Seven.  However the average family size has at least 7 or more children. Also, many families take in extra children who have been orphaned or displaced.

(AVUSC)   Uganda  supports primary education for children in Wakiso and  Kiboga districts, who are in need of financial  help to attend school such as uniforms and supplies.
