Connecting Children to the World and the World to the Children

The Child Link Foundation- Uganda is a Community Based Organization with operations and was incepted in March 2009 by a group of 3 professional social workers who had a passion for Orphans and other vulnerable children. It was officially registered in the same year by the Ministry of Gender, Labour  and social Development under Charity  N0 MG/2009/09/13666.


The organization has offices in Mukono District, but we are operating in some selected Administrative units where we feel our support is much needed.  We work with the local Government Authorities, Local Communities, Volunteers and other civil society Organization to ensure that our help go to the target population.


Our major focus is on education support to the neediest children especially those whose parents died of HIV/AIDS and other vulnerable children in Mukono District.
Currently, we are supporting over 100 needy children mostly girls with scholastic materials.  In most cases, orphans and other vulnerable children lack the basic education support such as exercise books, pens, shoes, school uniforms and school fees and if these are not provided, they disrupt the progress of the children’s formal education.


Therefore the Child Link Foundation-Uganda seeks to address these issues affecting the children’s welfare, because we believe that investing in children’s education increases their chances of having a better tomorrow.
The majority of the children we are supporting lost their parents and are now staying with their grannies or other close relatives.  These grannies struggle to feed their grand children on top of ensuring that they go to school and get formal education. However, most of them are economically crippled and are facing poverty housing. Therefore, we are trying to help grannies start and manage viable income generating activities such as poultry, heifer projects and small retail businesses so that they may continue caring for their grand children.

In addition to education support we also carry out the following programs;
• Prevention of Mother to child HIV Transmission (PMTCT) Program
• TB and HIV/AIDS sensitization
• Nutritional support
• Micro loan Program to the HIV/AIDS patients
• Income generating activities IGAs

 

Our Mission

support all children in difficult circumstances especially orphans and other vulnerable children so that they may have a better future.
