Give and Change A Life In Uganda...

Our Projects

What We Do

CCFU aims to educate and build the confidence of children, youth and women through our holistic education, engagement and empowerment in Masaka, Uganda. There is a HUGE need and demand for our programs to address the specific challenges faced by young people and women in urban slums and rural areas of Masaka region and in Uganda atlarge.

EDUCATION SPONSORSHIPS

It is extremely difficult for poor families in Uganda to afford to send their children to school and as a result many children miss out on a vital education. At CCFU we believe that education is a basic human right and is essential to breaking the cycle of poverty, and that all children deserve the chance to learn and to have a bright future. This is the reason why we decided to help such children to be able to access education through getting education sponsorships. If you are interested to sponsor a child (ren) just get in touch and we connect you with the children of your choice.

CHILD RIGHTS PROJECT

The project is taking place in Masaka district in two sub counties of Buwunga and Mukungwe sub counties in six parishes including: Bulando, Sserinya, Kanywa, Ssamaliya, Kitenga and Kayunga. We are working with other stake holders icluding local leaders, schools, parents and government authorities to advocate for children's rights and work together to End Child Violence. We do this through setting Community Child Protection Committees (CCPC's) who work as change agent in villages and setting up school child rights clubs where we pass our information to the students.

CCFU WOMEN EMPOWERMENT PROJECT (WEP)

We believe that in order to help vulnerable children it is vital to empower mothers too. Our WEP bring together women from a community to work as a group to help each other overcome their situations of poverty through saving groups. For the young women in our community, especially young mothers, CCFU tackles the cycle of poverty that leaves women economically dependent on men. The Young Women’s Economic Empowerment Program targeting disadvantaged young women so that they can become economically empowered through business trainings, financial skills, small start-up capital, and the facilitation of a savings group.
