Help for Children in Uganda – known as HUG – is a non-political, non-religious, independent UK Registered Charity that is also registered in Uganda with the NGO Board.

Run entirely by volunteers, we care for and provide access to education for children of the Ssese Islands in the northwestern corner of Lake Victoria, Uganda, a remote and hard-to-reach group of 84 islands in the second-largest freshwater lake in the world.

Working in these remote islands HUG gives hope to extremely needy children through a child sponsorship and guardianship programme helping to provide access to education until they reach financial independence.

We support the children by:

  • Provision of daily lunch, exercise books, pens and pencils to day pupils

  • Boarding fees for those who need to board away from home

  • Provision of school uniforms, shoes, bedding, basins, cups, plates to the most needy

  • Payment of fees and requirements post primary to secondary school or vocational training

  • Provision of holiday care for children with no relatives to care for them

  • Provision of mosquito nets to all children

  • Annual health checks and access to basic health education

  • Provision of land to grow crops for the children

  • In cases of extreme poverty we provide a total package of requirements.
