Amazing Children Uganda

We provide educational scholarships for street children in schools in Uganda, and help the children to become self supporting and have the best chance in life.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    --We give street children in Uganda the chance to lift themselves out of poverty by providing opportunities for education.

    The children seize these opportunities with hard work and commitment, and are achieving amazing results. The first girl taking A levels achieved excellent grades and is now in the second year of a university Law degree course, just a few years after being destitute on the streets of Kampala.

    --We look for sponsors and donors to fund their education, holiday accommodation and food, school uniforms/books, and medical care.

    --The children, aged from 4 to 18, have had traumatic lives, many being orphans. We aim to give them the skills to become self supporting and also to help their communities.

    --We also prepare more children for school, when more sponsors and donors can be found, through literacy, numeracy, arts , choir , and sports programmes.

    --We are run entirely by volunteers, and we take great care to listen to the children, to inspect the schools, and ensure the money goes directly to helping the children.

    --We are a registered charity, independently examined, and are members of the Consortium for Street Children, a development partner with A4iD, a legal charity.
