Live for a child initiative (LIFCHILD)

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Live for a child initiative (LIFCHILD) is a not-profit Non-governmental, none denominational organization registered in Uganda. working with the most marginalized, ostracized and vulnerable groups of children i.e. orphans, the needy, CWDs.

Children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and those considered to be products of socially immorality hence abandonment often lack people who care enough to provide basic needs and adult guidance, as most guardians to whom these children are left happen to be old people who are illiterate to value their grand children’s education needs and could not assist them even if they wanted to. They are also impoverished and physically weak to engage in serious agriculture activities. This leaves these vulnerable children at a risk of poorer health and nutritional status together with low enrollment in schools than other children. All LIFCHILD programs and services are geared towards providing a holistic solution to the problems that affect children and factors that work in correlation with the social and economic status of parents to affect children.

LIFCHILD’s program of constructing a school(s) in different names, aims at providing quality education to orphans and vulnerable children in the communities irrespective of their physical, social or religious status. Under this program and campaign named “Education for life “. LIFCHILD fundraises for funds to build the schools and the facilitation of teachers plus other administrative costs of the school, is catered for by community students who are not orphans or vulnerable but are attracted by the quality of education services offered by the schools. These other community students will enroll in the day and the boarding sections of the school and will strictly constitute to 40% of the students population leaving the orphans and vulnerable children who are the mainly targeted at 60%.
An entire school for 1,200 children costs $300,000 and the school runs sustainably after it has been built, and the 1,200 places created continue to educate children year after year.
