The Health and Nutrition programme strives to contribute to the attainment of MDGs 4 and in line with women and children’s rights to survival, development and health. Aim Home care Uganda’s runs campaign of contributing towards the survival of children through high impact programs on newborn and maternal health.
The Education programme is aimed at supporting the Government of Uganda to achieve Millennium Development Goal number 2 (universal, free and compulsory primary education for all children by 2015). To this end, program activities contribute to the achievement of access to free and compulsory primary education of good quality for all children in Uganda, in a safe and protective school and community environment.
There are approximately 2000 qualified advocates for the 36 million Ugandans, making it difficult for many to access legal assistance, resulting in many unresolved disputes or resolved using crude methods like mob justice.
The right to legal aid is well entrenched in the International and Regional human rights treaty framework to most of which Uganda is a state party. The provision of legal aid to the indigent has emerged as a dominant intervention in enhancing access to justice for the poor. Legal aid services address the concerns of the poor and vulnerable by focusing on challenges arising from: affordability of user costs, lack of legal representation, and alienation due to technicalities, language and ignorance of legal rights.
Aim Home care Uganda has the potential not only to enable these vulnerable groups resolve their disputes at the family and community level, but to enhance awareness of legal and human rights, empower them to claim their rights and advocate for social, policy and legal change at community and national level.
While Aim Home care Uganda interventions may not in principle transform the poverty situation of the recipients of services, they greatly contribute to the empowerment of individuals and communities – a key ingredient of poverty reduction efforts.
Financial literacy and education
Aim Home care Uganda has discovered the tremendous potential of financial literacy initiatives to bring about positive change in the lives of its society in Kamwenge District. Although NGOs have diverse objectives, the positive impacts of financial literacy interventions are garnering attention across the entire financial sector because these programs are accomplishing a few critical goals especially regarding poverty alleviation.
OVC and Rehabilitation
Aim Home care Uganda continues to be cognizant of the existing situations of orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda. This area of focus is highly embraced through our programming due to the outcomes it may bring if not attended to with strategic planning and support with feasible resources. As a result, we are thus able to;
Improve the quality of life of Orphans & Vulnerable Children affected and infected by HIV/AIDS through access to educational opportunities including sponsorship, vocational skills and apprenticeship training.
Provide psychosocial care and economic support to Orphans & Vulnerable Children and caregivers for improved livelihoods.
