Above is single mother who is dumb with nine children each child with a different father.Men always take advantage of her being dumb, sexually harass her, they impregnate her after they run and abandon her with the children, she lives in a small single room in the slums of Lungujja-Kosovo in Uganda which was donated to her by the community, when it heavily rain the house is always filled up with rain water which put the lives of the children and mother at stake, whatever she has in the house get spoiled for example; Clothes, beddings, utensils, food among others. Katika Child Africa (KCA) through its Empower the children, youth and women initiative started for her a small daily income business of selling fruits and vegetables which could help her get some money to sustain the basic needs of life for herself and children. she was doing well because people were buying and supporting her, unfortunately it was short lived due to the heavy rain that came one day and swept away everything she was selling from the toll yet she was not saving all the profit she could make on the daily basis were used on feeding the children and other emergency needs. KCA mobilised the Village Health Team (VHT) to educate her about family planning and its importance so she understood the concept and agreed to using family planning to help her avoid unwanted pregnancies.

An old grandmother lives with six grandchildren who were abandoned by their mothers due to the lack of child support from fathers. One of her sons (father) was arrested, imprisoned and the other died and she was left with the grand children alone in a rented house

Through Katika Child Africa “Empower Children, Youth and women in Urban Slums” (ECYWUS) project we have tried to respond to the problem of poverty especially among the disadvantaged slum children, youth and women, other problems are school drop outs,  Increased rate of Crimes and  Imprisonment of the bread winners in homes. However KCA can’t do much to solves all the problems in the community because the organisation is also limited by the resources to touch the lives of everyone in the community.
