Child of Hope makes huge social impact for the poorest and most vulnerable slum children and their families from its schools in Eastern Uganda. Please click below to find out more...
Where do we work?
Our work takes place in the Namatala slum near Mbale, where we have built our nursery/primary school and secondary school. Up to 30,000 people live there, many are internally displaced people (IDPs) from the north. Around half the population is school age but poverty prevents most of them going to school.
In 2022, we started a new nursery school in the poverty-stricken region of Karamoja, Northern Uganda. It commenced in a borrowed building with 60 children who have all received uniforms. A Karamojong teacher – whom we put through study in Mbale and trained at Child of Hope School – is now teaching them and two assistant teachers accompany him.
How do we raise funds?
We offer a range of sponsorship schemes and one-off donation opportunities, along with emergency and project appeals. We are supported by individuals, churches, trusts, schools and businesses. As a UK-registered charity, we are also able to reclaim gift aid on eligible donations.
Who are we?
Child of Hope Outreach Uganda is a registered Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Uganda (reg no. S-5914/7717). The nursery schools, primary school, secondary school and the family support team are supported by administrative and management departments. The executive director, assisted by the strategy and programmes advisors and supported by the operations and finance managers, oversees the organisation as a whole. The schools, founded and owned by CoH Outreach Uganda, are governed by their own management committees and are overseen by a board of directors.
In the UK, a team supports the Ugandan operation through the Christian registered charity Child of Hope (England and Wales reg no.1136068). That team consists of a board of trustees, four part-time paid roles and a small group of dedicated volunteers.
