Street Children Rehabilitation
Based on the recent study done by Government, there are 5000+ children who live in the streets of Kampala. Some children live together while some live on their own. These children have limited access to food, shelter, protection, and health; and they don’t have a chance to go to formal school. That’s why 2Hands Education/ Health programs will give the street children a chance to learn basic education etc. through our Educators and care takers.
With your help we hope to use this donation help a total of 200 children living on the street and alone in slums. Rehabilitation of these children is an extremely challenging task, as they are habituated to a life of instability and no one to look after them. A right atmosphere, active engagement and relevant education needs to be provided in the new home, or else they will easily run away to their old life on the streets.
The Educators are the primary care givers and serve as role models and change agents. Each one is chosen and trained to establish and sustain relationships with these children, singly or in groups, in their current environment. They facilitate sessions on basic education, alternative and values education, life skills and life goals, child rights, the effects of drug abuse, protection from sexual abuse, primary health care and nutrition and among others from Monday to Friday.
This generous donation will help fund these specific expenses:
• An Educator: These children need a teacher who can adjust to their unique educational needs. Education is one of the primary focuses, so please help them keep it that way!
• Food: Food is basic human right, and no one, especially not children, should be denied a meal.
• Medical and psychological assistance: 2Hands will take in these children and place them in a home that raises them 24/7, so good healthcare is a necessity. This campaign is going to help make sure the children stay happy and healthy.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about 2Hands! Hope you join the mission to help them succeed and follow the campaign on all our social media platforms.
The street children & their families as well as the communities will benefit from this project since most of the street children will have better direction in life and will no longer be engaged in illegal and unproductive activities but will be worthy and productive citizens of their community. These children will have the opportunity to develop life goals and to have a better future by motivating other children to engage in service skills training.
This project will not only help equality in education but improve community cohesion and the acceptance of the often-stigmatized former street children.
