EDUCATION SPONSORSHIPS

It is extremely difficult for poor families in Uganda to afford to send their children to school and as a result  many children miss out on a vital education. At CCFU we believe that education is a basic human right and is essential to breaking the cycle of poverty, and that all children deserve the chance to learn and to have a bright future.

This is the reason why we decided to help such children to be able to access education through getting education sponsorships. If you are interested to sponsor a child (ren) just get in touch and we connect you with the children of your choice.

ENSONGA PROJECT

Girls worldwide are less likely to complete their education than boys. Girls are more likely to earn less, have poor health, and live in poverty. Girls are often overlooked and are often less empowered to fulfil their potential.

Ensonga Project focuses on adolescent and young girls in schools. We give them accurate information about Menstrual Hygiene Management, about their Reproductive Health and Rights, Behavior changes among other topics that can help them reach their full potential. We also give them Re-usable Sanitary Pads because its so difficult for girls in rural areas to access sanitary pads which makes them miss school days because menstruation hence affecting their performance and some time leads to school droup out!

 

‘Ensonga Project’ also include working with teenage boys as well as girls. We provide counseling for girls and boys who have been abused, neglected or need support in any way. We give teens a safe space to discuss ideas, ask difficult questions, and receive emotional support, advice and practical help. We also run an annual Teens Conference to empower and support these young people.

CCFU aims to educate and build the confidence of children, youth and women through our holistic education, engagement and empowerment in Masaka, Uganda. There is a HUGE need and demand for our programs to address the specific challenges faced by young people and women in urban slums and rural areas of Masaka region and in Uganda atlarge.

We believe that in order to help vulnerable children it is vital to empower mothers too. Our Women’s Initiatives bring together women from a community to work as a group to help each other overcome their situations of poverty through saving groups.

For the young women in our community, especially young mothers, CCFU tackles the cycle of poverty that leaves women economically dependent on men. The Young Women’s Economic Empowerment Program targeting disadvantaged young women so that they can become economically empowered through business trainings, financial skills, small start-up capital, and the facilitation of a savings group.

Adolescents & Youth

This project is targeting the out of school communities of young people ages between 14-24 who are vulnerable to STDs, HIV/AIDS, Child Marriage, Teenage Pregnancy, Gender Based Violence and all related issues caused by limited or no access to their Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights (SRHR) information and services. 

Empowering young people to exercise their Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights and help them make better informed choices. We also empower them through developmental life skills.

Activities focus on youth-led media, youth rights, and youth involvement in community decision-making, and other methods.

CHILD RIGHTS PROJECT

The project is taking place in Masaka district in two sub counties of Buwunga and Mukungwe sub counties in six parishes including: Bulando, Sserinya, Kanywa, Ssamaliya, Kitenga and Kayunga. We are working with other stake holders icluding local leaders, schools, parents and government authorities to advocate for children's rights and work together to End Child Violence. We do this through setting Community  Child Protection Committees (CCPC's) who work as change agent in villages and setting up school child rights clubs where we pass our information to the students.
