OUR PROJECTS

 

WE OPERATE A DAY CARE CENTER THAT SERVES 150 CHILDREN DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY IN ODEK SUB-COUNTY, GULU DISTRICT. THESE ARE THE LIFE-CHANGING PROGRAMS PROVIDED BY HOPE FOR HUMANS AT THIS CENTER.

At the Hope for Humans Care Center we provide the following:

  • A safe sanctuary and a day care program for 41 children from Monday through Saturday.
  • A medical clinic that administers daily medical care and dispense medicines to children.
  • Two nutritious meals and nutritional supplements per day
  • A special needs education to affected children

Wash project

  • We provide clean water to neighboring communities through drilling of boreholes at the Hope for Humans care center.

Outreach program

  • We provide home care to over 30 children who are too sick to travel to our Care Centers. Children and families are visited regularly where we conduct medical assessments, administer treatment, and monitor progress and adherence to medication. We also monitor class performance to children who are school going.

Community Development projects (Agriculture)

  • We implement Income Generating Activities (IGAs) at both the center and in the surrounding communities. IGA activities include: piggery, poultry, vegetable farming and agricultural production. This is to ensure sustainable food production and income generation from sales of the farm produce.

Capacity building trainings / Sensitization 

  • We facilitate the trainings of volunteers, care takers, nurses and special needs teachers in the management and care of children with Nodding Syndrome.
  • We facilitate community development trainings on gender based violence, domestic violence, child’s rights, and child protection.
  • Provide awareness on family planning, voluntary counseling, and testing for HIV.
  • We provide agricultural extension services to the affected households of children with Nodding Syndrome.
  • Plans are underway to introduce an adult literacy program to the parents of children with NS to bridge the communication gap and ensure awareness and knowledge on medical recommendations.

Full time admission 

  • This 2015, we are opening our first full time admission wards for severely affected children both in Odek-Gulu and Kitgum districts to house 80 children respectively.

Psychosocial and Physiotherapy support

  • We work to improve the children’s social and mental health through music and dance therapy, home visits, counseling and guidance, and love and care.

Research 

  • We support research that works to find the cause and cure for Nodding Syndrome by collaborating with international, national, and local researchers.

Education Scholarships

  • To support the entire community affected by Nodding Syndrome, we provide education scholarships to students living in these vulnerable communities in an effort to support the future and long-term growth of the country and it’s people.
