What We Do
Breaking Barriers, Opening Doors

Fighting Poverty
One of our goals is to ensure that the most vulnerable and at-risk groups in the uganda are safe and have their basic needs taken care of. With your generous donations and volunteering efforts, you have the capacity to help us in our endeavour of Fighting Poverty.

Feeding Children
Being hungry impacts everything in people’s lives. When they can’t cover this basic need, families struggle to find a way out of poverty. It’s harder to take advantage of economic opportunities or get involved in community actions. Kids who are hungry don’t do as well in school — if they are able to go at all. Babies who don’t get the right nutrition early in life may never reach their full potential as adults.

Watar
Water+ is about more than just handwashing and clean drinking water. Water+ is about linking water to other activities so that we can make the biggest impact possible.It is about water for agriculture, for livelihoods, for nutrition, for keeping girls in schools, for helping women to be leaders, for preventing disease outbreaks, and more. Water+ helps us achieve more with less and respond to the complicated needs of the people we work with.
Water+ approaches mean that we work with others whenever possible. This means that we do not stop at ensuring wells and promoting soap, but also work on making sure that water services have good governance, maintenance, and financing that will keep them going. We look at the connections between water and nutrition, water and agriculture, and water and education.


Agriculture
Our programs build on and are inspired by the vital roles that women play in smallholder agriculture around the world: meeting the food needs of their households, contributing to the development and growth of livelihoods, and working toward sustainable futures for their households and communitiesBeyond the resource gap, women farmers are routinely paid less than men for their agricultural labor; carry a disproportionate share of household workloads; are often excluded from agricultural decision-making; and are under-represented in agricultural organizations. The net impact of these barriers is a systematic gap between women’s potential contributions to food security and household resilience and what they are able to achieve today. By failing to close the gender gap in agriculture, the world is paying dearly

Health
Every day, about 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.

We goes beyond providing health services and works to address the barriers that prevent the most vulnerable people from accessing quality, equitable health care. We use our signature approaches like Social Analysis and Action (which helps people transform social norms) and the Community Score Card(a citizen-driven accountability approach that facilitates access to quality services).

With communities at the center, we are working to support more effective and motivated health workers. We also increase health systems’ ability to serve the people who are hardest to reach and to respond to crisis. We know local communities are experts on their own situations and working together is the best way to build strong, self-sustaining, and equitable health systems.

Education
Education and the right to work are the most powerful tools in overcoming extreme poverty.



Our programs provide tailored solutions to students facing multiple barriers to education to acquire relevant skills, creating opportunities for positive transitions to all schools and dignified livelihoods. Our integrated approach is based on extensive research on what works to increase marginalized children’ learning outcomes, retention, and wellbeing.
We put all kids at the center of our programs and build a supportive environment for them in the community and at school. At the individual level, we help to develop their academic competencies alongside leadership and life skills, raising their confidence and voices. At the community level, we work with parents and traditional and religious leaders to shift negative gender and social norms affecting education outcomes, increasing support for their’ education and active participation in school. We work with Ministries of Education and school staff to improve the quality of teaching, strengthen supervisory capacity, and develop gender-transformative and inclusive policies and budgeting


Climate
Changes in temperature and precipitation may influence reproductive goals (e.g., the desire for another child, ideal family size) and behaviors (e.g., contraceptive use, childbearing) through multiple pathways. For example, climate-induced changes in household resources may lead to intentional decisions to increase or decrease family size. If children are viewed as net consumers of resources, climate-induced resource constraints, such as diminished agricultural output or income, may lead to a reduction in family size. The opposite may occur if children are viewed as net producers (e.g., a source of labor). Climatic changes may also spur shifts in fertility by decreasing children’s health and survival, which may lead women to have additional children in anticipation of increased mortality risks (“insurance effects”) or in response to an actual child death (“replacement effects”).

Helping orphans


We are dedicated to providing long-term, consistent support to orphan children and their families in need. Our teams are here to ensure the children in our care will grow and develop in their confidence over time and have a chance for a better and brighter future.

As one of the first charities in the world dedicated to caring for orphans and providing child sponsorship, our work has made a difference to young lives that may have been lost. We work with some of the poorest communities in Uganda and provide for the innocent lives.

1:SOLAR POWER.
Many villages in Africa are still not connected to the electricity grid. Low-income households as well as public institutions meet their energy needs with health and environmentally-damaging energy sources such as kerosene lamps.We choose solar panels because they are designed to be easy to use and work as a 'plug and play' system. The panels are installed and maintained by qualified and certified technicians so that no hazards occur due to improper installation. People are given an introduction by the technicians on how to use the panels. The maintenance of the system in the first three years is guaranteed and potential issues are resolved within 48 hours by qualified service personnel.

2Against HIV/AIDS
over a million children and about 20 percent of adults are infected with HIV. Nowadays, mostly young people contract HIV. We have to provide education about prevention of HIV/AIDS from an early age.

Who We Are and What We Do
We Make It Easy to Help Others


We are a small association with great ambitions and great love for these children. We cannot change Uganda and help all the children in need, but we want to make a difference in the lives of every child we come into contact with. We want to help these children and their families overcome the obstacles posed by poverty, violence, illness and discrimination.
We are giving these children and community members a brighter future through disease prevention, access to clean water, access to healthcare, nutritious food, hygiene awareness, HIV/AIDS care, education, literacy classes, community events, weekend clubs, and some joy in their lives!.
