Shule's Skills Training and Drop-In-Center
Providing dignity, building relationships, and establishing a firm foundation...
Situated in the center of the Kisenyi, one of the largest slums in Kampala, the Shule Skills Training and Drop-In-Center, open daily, provides services to homeless boys to meet their basic needs - that many of us take for granted.
Every day on average, 45 street-connected boys visit our center, where we offer them two meals — breakfast and lunch — a place to shower, wash their clothes, brush their teeth, and get a haircut. Boys receive counseling and medical care.
The kids attending our programs participate in English, Math, and Computer classes and attend our various skills training workshops.
The boys enjoy gardening, running around, playing board games like chess, exercising, and watching inspirational movies. Every child that visits our center receives lots of love and encouragement.
At the center, we create trust, forge strong relationships with the boys still on the streets, and identify those ready to leave street life behind.
Building a solid foundation with the boys plays a vital role in the boys not returning to the street after moving them to our transitional home.
