Another Hope Children's Ministries

Organization Description: 

Another Hope Children’s Ministries (ACHM) began in 2005 but officially registered in October 2006 as a CBO; Reg.NO: WCBO/579/2006. ACHM is renting a home in Nansana East Zone where it gathers children who have no home. Also this I where the offices are.

After a careful assessment of the increasing number of orphaned, street children and children from impoverished families in Nansana, Wakiso district and around due to HIV/Aids, the war in the Northern part of the country and poverty, we realized numerous problems encountered by these children on one hand, and denied rights due to the inadequate arrangements to rehabilitate them from streets. We formed AHCM to bring hope to the orphaned, street children and children from impoverished families by providing love and care in a Christian environment. AHCM is a community based organization dedicated to bringing hope through its educational, health, basic needs and Vocational training school programs, aimed at 1,500 children. AHCM is an organization that is committed to child development, advocacy and strength-based holistic approach in responding to the problems that face vulnerable children of Nansana and the surrounding areas.

Since its establishment, AHCM has grown to support 47 orphaned, street children and children from impoverished families-32 stay at the home and 15 in the community boys.

Below are the categories into which AHCM 47 beneficiaries fall.

‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚• After the death of both parents and the sibling are distributed among relatives

‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚• After the death of the father and the mother fails to take care of the family

‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚• After the death of the father and the mother leaves home, leaving the children with relatives

‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚• After the death of the father and the mother takes responsibility for the family

‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚• When a family has several orphans to care for

‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚• When the household is extremely impoverished

‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚• Street children

Problem Statement

More than 90% of the world‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚’s HIV/Aids orphans reside in sub-Sahara Africa. Current estimates are 12 millions more children are expected to be orphaned in the years to come. These children, whose trauma begins long before their parents die, are often robbed of their family of origin and many also robbed of their livelihoods, education and future hope, which is a similar case with the war affected children and those from impoverished families. Uganda being one of the countries found in sub-Saharan Africa, it has a number of orphans because of HIV/Aids, scourge. Again many children end up on the streets of Kampala because of the war in the Northern part of Uganda and due to poverty Uganda has a good percentage of children from impoverished families. NGO‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚’s and Government are trying to help these children.

Some orphans have none of their relatives surviving and those with some relatives surviving are not well catered for. Uganda is a country where per capita income is less than US$1,000.

Many orphans, street children and children from impoverished families are still hopeless because the organizations that are in both Kampala and Wakiso districts can‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚’t accommodate all the of them.

It‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚’s with this background that Another Hope Children‚‚‚‚‚‚‚‚’s Ministries was established to bring hope to vulnerable children who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS, street children and children from impoverished families.
