Get involved!


If your interest is CSR, strategic philanthropy, or social investment, you’ll want your charity involvement to have enormous social impact. Well, here’s a young and expanding charity with a big vision to build and manage high-quality schools and vocational facilities in slums, providing free education to the most vulnerable children in Uganda.

Our social impact is huge… reaching past the child to his/her whole family and wider into the community. Please see our social impact page for more detail. By providing a quality education, welfare service, healthcare, clothing and food – all free – these children can avoid the most likely outcomes of slum-dwelling – which are abject poverty, scavenging on rubbish tips, ill-health, corruption, crime and prostitution.

Instead, the enhanced potential for our children is vast:
• they can confidently enter work and the business world with IT and practical skills,
• they will be fully trained in literacy and numeracy, speaking/writing fluent English (the business language of Uganda),
• they will be fully-trained in our ethos of integrity.

You can engage with Child of Hope at all kinds of level from one-off donations to regular support and a working partnership. From capital projects like construction work for new schools… through sponsoring teachers or welfare workers… to donating to food and welfare provision or tools for a vocational training. Your involvement can be at any level you like, but here are three suggestions:

Involvement 1: 

Donate equipment or money to further children’s education – so that they have the best chance of having an economic impact on their local area. We can arrange all the logistics for you. 

Involvement 2: 

Become a programme sponsor and choose one to fund that best matches the values of your organisation:
  1. Capital projects; building safe & sustainable schools.
  2. Education; developing people to become the best they can be. 
  3. Health and food; ensuring equality.
  4. Welfare; providing the best possible service.
  5. Income generation for families; enhancing the local economy. 

Involvement 3: 

We can tailor-make a programme in UK or Uganda that will match your employees’ skills to help those in need. For management development, volunteering and team-building placements in Uganda, we will arrange all logistics and it will have defined outcomes to up-skill your employees. 

 

Please contact our director Phil Dowding if you would like a no-commitment discussion about a potential involvement… call him on (01202) 697201 or drop him an e-mail. Or in Ireland, please e-mail our Dublin teamThanks!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Current programmes you could sponsor:

Health

By sponsoring our health programme you can directly impact children’s BMI, reduce infectious diseases, improve hygiene and sanitation, increase attendance records… and in many cases, save their lives.

Welfare

Our locally-employed, fully qualified welfare team visits children at home who are under threat of neglect. This is a vital and unique part of our programme that ensures each CoH child has the best chance for the future. Sponsor this project and impact the lives of the most vulnerable. 

Family income generating activities

We want parents to be able to support their children at home, so we provide small start-up grants and business advice to parents that have shown they are capable of running their own small businesses. Sponsor this project and directly impact the local economy of each family and of Namatala. 

CoH's income generating activities

We are keen to start businesses of our own, from which profits will go towards sustaining our child-focussed programmes. For example, we currently grow and harvest rice from a donation we received to purchase land, and from another donation we hire out three taxi motorcycles to raise an income. We have other ideas for business which can be sponsored… let’s talk!
