Carrying out research means that we are continuously looking to deepen our understanding and knowledge so that we can improve our programmes and ensure that more children are able to stop calling the street their home.

We have focused a lot of our recent research on the issue of drug addiction for children on the streets and how we could offer the best rehabilitation service possible to help them recover.

Head counting research


In 2023 we conducted head counting research to better understand the number of children living and working on the streets of Jinja, Uganda, and key trends in their behaviour to inform our services.

Drug rehabilitation research

Drug addiction is a major problem amongst children living on the streets in Jinja, and across the whole of Uganda. Our research has looked into the reasons children might end up addicted to drugs, and how best we can help them break free.

Community mapping

Our community mapping highlights organisations, schools and vocational centres in 3 areas; Bugembe, Mafubira and Masese so that we can refer people who we are not able to support to an organisation or educational institution that might be able to help them.

Please note we are in the process of publishing a lot of our practice based research from Uganda, so please check back if you are interested to learn more.

Also please do get in touch if you have some relevant research you would like to share with us or you are interested in doing research with us in the future. As a small charity we are not able to honour all research requests, but we will try our best to help where we can:
