Mbale, Jinja, Lira and Masaka, Oeganda

These (street)children are prepared to get back in regular education. Approximately 690 (street)children between 5 and 18 years old are helped here.

 

In recent years the numer of (street)children is still increasing. One of the reasons why the children end up on the street is poverty, deceased parents by HIV/Aids or during the civil war. The families of the children are involved and encouraged to form self-help groups. They are helped to come to loans through credit groups to start income generating activities.

 

This project put a permanent change with young people.
