What we do/about us

Where do we work?

Our work started in the Namatala slum near Mbale, where we built our nursery/primary school. Up to 30,000 people live there, many are rural migrants, internally displaced people (IDPs) from the north, fleeing hunger and violence. Around half the population is school age, but poverty prevents most of them from going to school.

Since then, we have built our own secondary school in nearby Namabasa, and started a new nursery school in the poverty-stricken region of Karamoja, Northern Uganda, in a borrowed building with 60 children.

How do we raise funds?

In the UK, we offer a range of sponsorship schemes and one-off donation opportunities, along with emergency and project appeals. Individuals, churches, trusts, schools and businesses support us. As a UK-registered charity, we can also reclaim gift aid on eligible donations.

Who are we?

In the UK, Child of Hope was founded in 2008 and became a registered charity in 2010. That team consists of a board of trustees, three part-time paid roles and a group of dedicated volunteers, providing financial and operational support to our sister charity in Uganda. 

In Uganda, the schools and family support team are supported by administrative and management departments, led by the executive director overseeing the organisation as a whole. Three long-term, non-salaried UK nationals personally known to the UK trustees work on the ground as advisors.
