How do we help in these areas?

Community Placement of Orphaned Children

 

As we identify children that have lost their parents, we trace the next of kin to try and place them there, so as to keep that unique semblance of familial attachment going. In the absence of relatives, we identify families with the capacity to absorb one or two extra children and then place them there.

These families are expected to treat the orphans as though they are their own children, by providing them with whatever their families would: food, shelter, medical care, education, clothing, but above all, love without peripheral qualifications.

Wama children of Uganda now visits these homes twice every month to supervise and ascertain compliance to Wama children of Uganda’s child placement standards.

 

WAMA Children’s Home

In the absence of a suitable home for orphaned and vulnerable children, WAMA provides a home to care for them as they can meet that need.

Children’s needs are complex and require physical, social, developmental, and spiritual care to raise them with a sense of self confidence and self worth.

WAMA Children’s Home currently 50 Orphans children.

 

Widows Economic Empowerment Projects

In most cases we find, it is women who assume much of the responsibility for orphaned children ultimately.

The income generating capacity of these households is profoundly constrained by numerous dependent children; lack of opportunity to accumulate productive resources like cattle, goats, and farming implements and difficulty in gaining access to credit.

They are further constrained by limited education and training which limits their employability.

 

Water source project

We are seeking an on going programme of safe water supply, by making a bore hole in the village, to prevent them from the water born diseases.

 

Health project/Hospital

We are having land where we need support to build a mega hospital for the village people,so we can deal away with the problem of moving long distances from village through a 25 kilometers to where the hospitals are

 

Education project

We are trying to build a wama new hope preparatory school, of which it is going to help 400 orphans with in 3 villages, that are hit with illiterate and ignorance.
