Caring for Children Uganda is a Community Based Organization that provides homes and basic services for orphans in Uganda Mukono Nakyeke. Key among the foundational steps is providing clean drinking water. Preserving the good health of the children and staff of this home is essential. There are multiple benefits in the installation of a rainwater collection system. One is the reduction of water collection from remote locations, carrying heavy water containers for long distances. Associated to that is the reduction on the use of wood to boil water; wood must also be carried from increasingly long distances, and it has an additional cost which cannot be afforded. The primary benefit is a safer way to prevent water born diseases like typhoid and cholera which can have life threatening effects on those affected by them. This system will reduce the logistic and financial burden it represents for those at Caring for Children Uganda and secure drinkable water for the kids. Your participation is what counts and what will make a difference, and for this, we are very thankful

The project will provide opportunities to children who seek to overcome their difficult circumstances by bringing them into the educational mainstream and offering them scholarships to attend high school, thus graduating students capable of making a positive contribution to the society.

Young people who grow up in areas of high deprivation, living below the poverty line and with complex family situations, typically suffer from unhealthy self-esteem, lack of direction & low aspirations . They are less likely to achieve healthy peer or intimate relationships, gain quality life skills, access training or development. They are at increased risk of mental health disorders, substance abuse, criminality, unemployability and homelessness.
This will in return help in the enrollment of more pupils in school and also improve the education environment in the village of Kayiini where 60% of the pupils study under trees and dilapidated houses with no or poor sanitation facilities.
This is a latrine structure no longer functioning awaiting a new structure.
The education infrastructures in Uganda especially in rural areas is so much neglected which has led to poor performances of pupils. Despite the fact that the government introduced universal education, the level of education in rural areas has still remained remote with poor or no school structures, like classrooms, sanitation facilities, poor salaries and teachers housing. This in turn has called on the NGOs to come in and give a hand to vulnerable communities to improve on the education environment.
