Our aim is to design and build a specialist transitional care centre in Kampala, Uganda to provide life saving care to abandoned babies.
We plan to recruit and train a team of Ugandan social workers, and set up a fostering and adoption service. Our goal is to either reunite these children with their natural family or place them with loving foster or adoptive families, eradicating the need for them to remain in long-term childcare institutions.
Child’s i Foundation will connect supporters to our work in Uganda in real time. Through emails, blogs and videos, people will be able to see exactly where their money is going, and we will have the opportunity to appeal directly for additional help should we need it.
Members of the community can be involved on many levels, from community fundraising, making donations and suggestions to actively volunteering at the Home in Uganda.
Interaction and mass collaboration we believe are the keys to building the charity and achieving our goals.
We are creating a “Web 2.0″ version of a letter from a sponsored child and hopefully a new way of giving. (See our FAQs for an explanation of Web 2.0)
Why are we doing this?
Without the Child’s i Foundation, babies may perish. The ones who do survive are likely to send up either living on the streets, or if they are lucky, in an institution where many become just another orphan statistic.
Child’s i Foundation plans to tackle the root cause of abandonment. We aim to support mothers who have no choice but to abandon their children.
