Child's i Foundation

In Uganda, the horrors of poverty, HIV/AIDS and violent conflict result in hundreds of babies as young as a few hours old being dumped by their desperate mothers in toilets, car parks, or on the roadsides of Uganda’s capital Kampala. And with all the current care homes full, life often looks bleak – and short – for these vulnerable children.
Child’s i Foundation wants to change this situation, because we believe these babies deserve and should have a better chance at life.

We want to help put an end to the endemic problem of child abandonment in Uganda by setting up our ‘Child Abandonment Project’. Developed with leading experts in social care in the UK and Uganda, this unique model has three parts: a support programme to help mothers at risk of abandoning their babies; a transitional home to provide short-term life-saving care; and a family placement programme to ensure every child grows up in a loving family.
