Situation

Due to the 20 year insurgence in North Uganda which has resulted in a lost generation of children it is imperative that communities are supported in designing and implementing strategies for taking care of vulnerable members of their community. Due to returning child soldiers, and people leaving DPC camps there is a huge need for educational support for children who cannot attend school e.g. child-headed households, HIV/AIDS, disability and trauma, and addressing the high mortality rate of OVC’s

Solution

Dignity’s emphasis directed at developing family and community capacity building, by working closely with the village leaders, community committees, Gov. Depts., and extension workers. The programme will be delivered from within a training centre. This will be used for training, teachers, and caregivers both in private and government sectors of childcare. Trained outreach workers which include parents and elected members of the community will establish a 2 classroom CBCC in each village.
