OUR INTERVENTIONS
1. Children Foster Home 🏡

WHY CHILDREN FOSTER HOME?
It is ideal that all children below the age of 18 still be accorded right care, protection and provision of needs and yet many children have either been abandoned by parents or chased away from home due to child torture, child neglect, poverty and effects of broken families especially during COVID-19 Pandemic. This has led to the increase of children living on streets to be within 800 to 1000 children in Iganga district taking on streets as home. This project is an important intervention in tracking down accounts of these children, provide shelter, care, protection, rehabilitation and reintegrate them back to their families so that they can enjoy their ideal life as required of the plight of children

ABOUT CHILDREN FOSTER HOME
Children at WFL children’s home come from a variety of difficult backgrounds. Many were abandoned and rejected by their parents due to poverty and some lost their parents to diseases and/or during birth. In our children’s home, they receive well rounded care that addresses their physical social, mental and spiritual needs. Modeled after a typical family environment, the home allows the children to experience all that it means to have a family.

THE COMMUNITY WE OPERATE IN
“IGANGA DISTRICT”
Iganga is a district in eastern Uganda. Like other Ugandan districts, it is named after its 'chief town'. It has a population of 716.311. The district is located in Central Uganda, about 25 km (16 miles) to the north of Lake Victoria. Iganga lies at an altitude of 1,138 m (3,732 ft.) above sea level and just north of the Equator. Iganga lies on the main road through East Africa from Kenya to the Ugandan capital Kampala. It lies within the Busoga tribal region, with the traditional Lusoga language still extensively used.

Iganga is a rural district, and the chief town is not a tourist destination yet as is Jinja to the west. The majority of people in Iganga are farmers. The main commercial crops grown include maize, sugarcane, coffee, tea, and soybeans.

Iganga district is one of the most impoverished districts in Uganda, which is significantly affecting the children. The life-threatening impacts children in Iganga face every day include malnutrition, health assistance deprivation, access to education, shelter deprivation and exposure to crime.
