Community Health Care

The Community Health Centre will start January 2016. It will provide quality medical treatment and  HIV/AIDS counseling and testing. The infected children, and youth will be referred to the other centre for HIV care and management. It will also provide a free primary healthcare including youth / adolescent reproductive health. The centre will triage children and youth based on the pre-determined necessary support, including; educational needs , child sponsorship for both primary and secondary, vocational enrollment and training, youth friendly services, community library, medical care and  home visits to assess the childrens’ homes, engage the youth in income generating activities (IGA).

In 2014 the Nurture Africa Health Centre provided: Free primary health care treatment to 5,000 orphans and vulnerable children. This treatment will mainly be for the biggest killer diseases to under- 18 year olds, including; immunization, malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea & vomiting, measles, malnutrition and other common infections.  400 children and youth will be screened for HIV and  their guardians will also access HIV screening, treatment and counseling support in the health centre.

Fetching water at the Youth Center 

ASOD Uganda directly supports the  educational needs of over 600 children in all levels of education (although the majority are under secondary school education). We have worked with our partners/guardians , “Lessons for Life Foundation” Waterloo Foundation and Optiver Holdings.  We are developing a holistic approach to educational support with Government schools, in which we are working with all stakeholders who impact upon a child’s education (local government, parents, all school staff and the children themselves) in order to provide a better quality of education for all children attending these schools as well as up skilling the  teaching staff.

Sustainability is the key to development. ASOD will empower parents/guardians to help themselves. Contrary to everyday understandings, more than 80% of children defined as orphans have a surviving parent or close family member that they could live with. Across sub-Saharan Africa, only very small numbers of truly orphaned children find themselves living without any resident adult/ caregiver.

However, children out of parental care have a right to protection against experiences that are harmful for them. In particular, they have a right to be protected against repeated broken attachments as a result of rapid turnover of short-term volunteers.

From our community education is given to the children and youth, training on how to start or develop an income generating activity for self support. The guardian is also given a micro finance loan in order to make their family self- sufficient and break the vicious cycle of poverty that exists in their own lives. In 2016, a total of 50 parents/guardians, adolescent girls and unemployed youth will be supported through this project.

 

Children Rights

Defilement is the most common crime committed against children standing at 57.7% for all reported child abuse cases Corporal punishment is  still practiced in nearly all schools in Uganda (ANPPCAN 2009).

In partnership with SAUTI Uganda, we believe that any child that is verbally, physically or sexually abused has the right to justice. We therefore ensure that every reported child abuse case is adequately followed up in the community until justice is achieved.
