UgandaKids e.V. is a non profit organisation – confessionally and politically independent.
We have made it our challenge to support vulnerable children in Uganda to open up opportunities for their own future with their own aims.
The boarding section which opened up in the beginning of 2014 offers a lot more than a place to stay. Apart from housing 120 boys and girls from grades 6 to 7 (60 in each of the two buildings), it has also become a place of shelter for a few younger girls. The sad fact is that their well-being is not guaranteed in all of the foster-parents’ homes where they live. In order to protect these particular girls from domestic violence Hilda and the responsible municipal authorities decided to keep them at the boarding section also during school holidays. They are being taken care of by the matron.
The atmosphere is as pleasant as in the school. The children take the chance to play but also do their laundry and ironing during these pastime hours.
