Helping children leave the streets

Street Outreach

Our Street Outreach programme provides vital services for children living on the streets of Uganda so they can access medical care, food and counselling. Our aim is to build trust with the children so that we can help them to leave the streets. Our Street Outreach programme includes various elements such as our Drop in Centres, Street Walks and Street Sports. Click to learn more about this programme.

Halfway Homes

Our Halfway Homes provide a temporary, safe place to be for children who have been living on the streets of Uganda before they are reunited with their families. Whilst a child is staying at one of our Halfway Homes, they are provided with love, care, support, counselling, and education. All this helps to prepare them for returning to normal life at home with their families. Click to find out more and learn about the history of our Halfway Homes.


Drug Rehabilitation

Drugs are a huge problem for children who are living on the streets in Uganda, since they are often cheaper than food. Addiction is a big factor in children staying on the streets for even longer. S.A.L.V.E. International opened our innovative Drug Rehabilitation centre in 2017. This centre offers a safe place where children can overcome their addictions and start to rebuild their lives.

Home Tracing and Resettlement

Our Home Tracing programme involves our dedicated social workers accompanying a child who has been living on the streets back to their home. This could be anywhere in Uganda, or beyond. There we meet with their family members to try and understand how the child ended up living on the streets. S.A.L.V.E. aims to resettle children back into a safe family home so they never need to return to life on the streets again.
