Dear GYCA members,
I take pleasure in introducing you to and requesting
support for the Baveeko Basome project which means “to get off and
let them learn” in Luganda a local dialect.
Our goal is to improve the health, welfare and quality of life of street children, former street children, orphans and Other Vulnerable Children.
This initiative advocates, promotes and protects the rights of street children and other vulnerable children (OVC) which fits in well with your organisation’s guidelines, goals and areas of interest for funding.
Our organisation, established in 2001, will serve initially two divisions of Kampala city, the capital of Uganda i.e Rubaga and Central with these services. Getting children off the streets, reunification with families, life skills in reproductive health, vocational education (ICT’s) and general welfare. The mission of the Baveeko Basome is to build the capacity of disadvantaged children (street children, former street children, orphans and OVC) through provision of quality social services in
areas of ICT, Reproductive and other social economic services. In 2005, the
Project Director was selected among 20 international fellows by the Youth
Action Net/ IYF youth leading change around the world. We have also registered
the project as an NGO Reg No. LUB/442.
The project for which we are
requesting funds will make a difference in the lives of street children, former
street children, orphans and OVC in the following ways: appointment and
training of staff, identification of street children and former street children,
counseling, reunification with families, food and clothes, health checkups and
treatment, recreation facilities, drop – in center and vocational training
precisely ICT’s. Some sources have estimated the number of orphans at 1 (one)
million. Consortium for Street Children reports that out of an estimated
8,000 Street Children in Uganda around 4,000 children live on the streets of
Kampala, the Ugandan capital. Many are war or AIDS orphans and some are HIV
BAVEEKO BASOME believes that long term
sustainable change in individual children’s lives and wider structural change
fulfilling their rights can be achieved by various benefits.
