Malnutrition and Hunger

Despite significant progress over recent decades, poor nutrition remains a colossal and universal problem with one with one in three people on the planet affected by some form of malnutrition.

Education

Many young children have failed to get any sort of education and a big percentage in Uganda have dropped out of school due to a number of factors. Katika Child Africa programs for education comes hand in hand with corporate partners to narrow up the gap.

Health

Our Success lies in our partnerships, whether we implement multi-tasked actions as part of a large scale targeted social impact plan run by an international development organization, join forces with other national civil society organizations to affect outcomes in Uganda society or collaborate with our own self designed programs with individuals and groups who wish to uplift lives. We welcome all challenges in a spirit of cooperation and achievement.

Hands on Skills

Youth empowerment programming looks at youth economic empowerment,Youth leadership training and development, financial inclusion of women and business toolkit.

Child Protection

Girl child programs have been in place with the help of Action Aid Uganda and other government bodies. Little female children have been sexually harassed and at times sold of as dowry to mature men hence leading to early marriages.

Clean Water

Spring wells have played a major role in providing clean water but if built well with good materials and care, many lives benefit from such developments.

Agriculture

In Uganda, youth unemployment is growing: Each year, 400,000 youth enter the labor market and compete for only 80,000 formal jobs. 75 percent of the workforce and 55 percent of youth in Uganda are engaged in the agriculture sector, and Uganda is addressing youth unemployment, in part, by creating more opportunities for rural youth to become involved in the sector. Katika Child Africa is connecting youth to these opportunities. The activity’s goal is to increase economic opportunities for approximately 350,000 Ugandan youth between the ages of 10 and 35. Supporting their endeavors in agriculture-related fields, the activity is dedicated to increasing their incomes and building their entrepreneurship, leadership, and workforce-readiness skills. The activity also collaborates with the private sector, workforce institutions, national organizations, and Ugandan leaders to change perceptions of youth.

Project Goals

• Increase the incomes of youth working in agricultural value chains
• Improve the development of skills (e.g., entrepreneurship, employability, leadership, and life skills) through formal and non-formal education and training organizations
