SAVE LIFE UGANDA
Our organization is involved in numerous projects
Save Life Uganda’s work saves and improves children’s lives around the Uganda. We work to ensure children have healthcare, food and shelter, as well as learning and child protection services when children need it most. We are committed to helping all children achieve their full potential by ensuring they grow up healthy, receive a good education, and stay safe.
Securing children’s rights is the foundation of our work. Millions of children around the world are denied their rights, simply because of who they are or where they are from. We know that to ensure every child has the chance for a future their rights must be upheld.
Through our programming, emergency responses and advocacy, we put the most vulnerable children first, tackling the barriers to survival, learning and protection.
Hundreds of children in Uganda are being robbed of an education simply because of who they are or where they live. Deprived of learning because they are caught up in emergencies, face extreme poverty, or are discriminated against because of their gender, disability or ethnicity. Uganda’s most vulnerable and excluded children are missing out on education. Without a quality basic education, children are less likely to escape the cycle of poverty and may never have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.
In times of crisis, when children are at their most vulnerable, Save Life Uganda is there. We are always among the first organisations to deliver life-saving support for children and their families. We partner with local organisations wherever possible to ensure our responses are locally driven, allowing us to build trust and gain access to hard to reach communities.
To strengthen our collective capacity to handle emergencies, our organisation provides quality-assured learning for everyone.
We stand side by side with children in the world’s toughest places.
30% of Uganda’s children experience violence. Violence takes many forms, including physical and emotional abuse, sexual abuse and exploitation, and neglect or deliberate deprivation. Growing up with violence, and the threat of violence, can lead to life-long physical, emotional and mental health problems.
Children living in conflict or emergency situations, such as natural disasters or major pandemics are even more vulnerable to exploitation, abuse and violence. Children living in conflict face the threat of being killed or maimed, falling victim to sexual violence, and being recruited as child soldiers. In many cases, children are specifically targeted.
Right now, children across the Uganda are facing a perfect storm of crises. Conflict, climate change and economic instability are jeopardizing families’ access to nutritious food and threatening the lives of 1million children.
Hunger knows no borders, no boundaries and no limits. It’s a force that drains a child’s energy, silences their play, and turns their dreams to dust. They should be exploring with their friends or expanding their minds in class. Instead, too many are worrying about when their next meal will be.
With our expertise and their resilience, we can beat hunger together. Let’s break the cycle and feed children’s futures.
