Child of Hope

We provide free education to slum kids to help lift them out of poverty.

Charity Registration No. 1136068


Having volunteered for the charity in UK for about 7 years I visited Child of Hope earlier this year. I stayed with Bex and Moses who run the school, spent time with some of the staff and met lots of children.  I was hugely impressed with the real difference they make to the lives of some of the poorest people in the world and felt inspired to do more to help. Child of Hope makes huge social impact for slum children and their families from its school in Eastern Uganda – by providing free education, healthcare, welfare, food and clothing to kids from the poorest and most vulnerable families. Even setting up mums in their own start-up business.It all takes place in the Namatala slum near Mbale, where survivors from years of strife in the north struggle to make ends meet. Up to 30,000 live there, around half of which are school age. But poverty prevents most of them going to school.
