In the Ngogwe community in central Uganda, families typically grow their own food. However, harvests often fail due to infertile soil and ineffective farming methods and nearly half of the population struggle to have enough food to eat year-round. 

Child protection is a significant problem in Ngogwe. There is a high incidence of child abuse, neglect and child marriage in the community.


 

Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Ngogwe community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Ngogwe community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

Together, we are tackling the hard problems, such as changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We're focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for the children of Ngogwe community.
