Kids Club Kampala (KCK) is a children's charity working to bring hope and love to vulnerable children and to transform poor communities in the slums of Kampala, Uganda. Founded in 2009, Kids Club Kampala was set up to overcome the lack of hope and self-esteem of children living in situations of extreme poverty, and works to empower children, women and whole communities to bring about sustainable changes through different development projects and supporting their basic needs. The vision is to see lives transformed, children and communities empowered and poverty reduced throughout the areas that we work in and further afield. Kids Club Kampala works with some of the most vulnerable and poor communities in the urban slums in and surrounding Kampala, Uganda, reaching over 4000 children and their families every week. We currently provide 250,000 meals each year for malnourished children, access to education for 700 children, sustainable income generation projects for 250 women, and children's activities and social support for up to 4000 children across 18 disadvantaged communities in Uganda. The objectives of Kids Club Kampala are: The prevention and/or relief of poverty in the slums of Kampala, Uganda through providing education, training, recreational activities and income generation projects To bring hope and love to vulnerable children To transform poor communities in Uganda To advance in life and relieve the needs of young people providing support and activities which develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals. To be community led and community driven To uphold the rights of the child Kampala's slums are notorious for drug and alcohol abuse and violent crime, poor sanitation and abject poverty. Many families often survive on just one meal per day and cannot afford to send their children to school. Out-of-school children are left unsupervised during the day whilst their parents try to make a living, and without a daily purpose or safe space to go these children become even more at risk. Many of the children that Kids Club Kampala work with have been abused, neglected, orphaned, street workers or simply abandoned. Kids Club Kampala has a proven track record of having a large impact in the communities that we work in. We are making a big difference by bringing hope and love into the lives of many vulnerable children in Kampala, and through changing the situations in which they live. The vision of Kids Club Kampala is to see lives transformed, children and communities empowered and poverty reduced throughout the areas we work in and further afield, and we are passionate about empowering these children and communities, letting them know they are loved and are worth something, and helping them to overcome their situations and poverty.
