Child of Hope is a Christian charity producing huge social impact for slum children and their families in Eastern Uganda through free education, healthcare and welfare. All donations go to our work in the Namatala slum district of Mbale and get straight to work improving lives and communities.

We provide safety, hope, love, education, protection and inner healing to children who have lost their homes, been sexually abused, orphaned due to AIDS/HIV and those living in abject poverty. Everything we do is for children and their families. We offer answers to some of the difficulties they face and, as you will see in this website, our activities are varied and expanding!

We have built our own three-level, awesome school in the heart of the slum – and now provide free education, healthcare, food and clothing (and a lot more) to 500 pupils of nursery and primary age from the poorest and most vulnerable families in the slum. And we continue to support children as they move up to local secondary schools.

Plus... we offer their families free social care, healthcare and numeracy/literacy training, business training and start-up grants – all designed to help them break the cycle of poverty in their lives.

You can sponsor a child at our school for just £15 per month – and receive letters, photos and school reports!
