Since 2008, we have been offering support to children living and working on the streets of Jinja, Uganda, giving them the opportunity to turn their lives around. Our aim is to ensure that no child ever has to live or work on the streets.
In our first 14 years, S.A.L.V.E. was able to support over 550 children to be reunited with their families and helped over 180 of those children who needed extra care to return to school. We also trained and mentored over 230 family members to start small enterprises.
We want to build on this solid foundation to ensure we are creating a world where there is ‘no street called home’ for children living and working on the streets in Uganda.
Our Dreams for the Future
We are building upon this foundation with a Strategic Plan that will run for April 2022 – March 2027.
Our plan has 4 key themes:
- Expanding specialised support for girls
- Strengthening families
- Reaching more children
- Improving our funding sustainability
Help Us Achieve Our Dreams
We cannot achieve anything we set out to do without the support of our global family. Could you help children’s lives in Uganda?
Why not play our lottery for just £3 a month and feed a street-connected child lunch for a week?
How about taking part in a fundraising challenge of your choice and raise money and awareness for us?
Why not support a street connected child to fulfil their dreams of getting an education?
Supporting us even in just a small way really does make a huge difference to children’s lives and we cannot do this without you.
