Christmas is coming, and of course, we’re thinking about presents. But what about children whose families are struggling to stay together? Whether through poverty, or violence or bereavement, children in Uganda in these situations most often end up in an orphanage.
For the last two years, thanks to you and Child’s i, not one child in the Ugandan district of Tororo went into an orphanage. None. Zero. No children at all.
How? Special people like Ramadan and Yusuf, that’s how.
Amazing people, who know their local communities and, with training from Child’s i Foundation, give their time day after day, to keep families together, and help them stay strong even in the toughest of times.
Community volunteers like Yusuf and Ramadan, are a big part of keeping families together. They advocate for the rights of children and encourage families to care for their children, rather than placing their children in orphanages.
