Why Uganda? Our Mission Our Solution Our Current Focus

Our Current Focus

Imagine facing insurmountable challenges at 5, 10 or only 12 years of age. In our western culture, it’s hard to image.

But this is the plight for millions of African children, left impacted by political and social strife, war or AIDS, and young lives lived in constant uncertainty.

Not only robbed of their childhood, a large number of children are without crucial support, protection, and guidance.

As a result, many are left ill-prepared to face the pressures of their world and are highly vulnerable to exploitation.

This is where ChildLife Network International starts.

Our role is to help the most vulnerable through comprehensive programs designed to mentor and educate the children of Uganda. Our goal, through our curriculum, is to help provide a springboard out of poverty and ultimately a better way of life.

Why Uganda?

We want to equip African kids for the future. Childlife Network International (CNI) envisions a world where children overcome the tragedies of war, poverty and abuse by providing better education and mentorship for the children of Uganda and neighboring countries. Uganda is our main focus because:


There are over 12,000,000 orphans due to HIV/AIDS.

7.5 million children are categorized as “orphans or vulnerable children” (OVCs). They live at risk of poverty, child labour, and the increasing threat of child abductions and trafficking.

Many orphans are unable to cope with the emotional strain put on them by the death of their parents. As a result many are abused or fall into dangerous situations

Our Mission

Our Mission is to promote healing through character education for children marginalized by HIV/AIDS, wars and child abuse in Uganda and neighboring African countries.

Our solution: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

The profound problems facing Africa can be solved only with effective and sustainable aid. We believe that such aid must be provided by a policy that emphasizes self-sufficiency rather than paternalism.
