Exploring Shule's Street Boys Outreach Program!
It all starts on the streets…
At Shule Foundation, we are committed to making a meaningful impact on the lives of street boys in Kampala's slums. Our dedicated teams hit the streets every day, engaging with these boys, building connections, and inviting them to join our transformative programs at the drop-in center.
Our Daily Walks: Connecting with Lives
Every day, the dedicated Shule team takes to the streets of various slums in Kampala, engaging with boys facing the harsh realities of street life. These interactions form the backbone of our outreach program, allowing us to extend a lifeline to those in need.
* Engaging Conversations: Our teams engage in genuine conversations, understanding the challenges these boys face and offering a lifeline to a better future.
* Drop-In Center Invitations: Boys are warmly invited to our drop-in center, where they can access a range of life-changing programs.
* Swift Intervention: Identifying new arrivals is a top priority. Swift action is taken to get them off the streets quickly, ensuring their safety and well-being.
* Immediate Medical Care: Recognizing urgent needs, we provide immediate medical care to those requiring attention, fostering a healthier start to their journey.
Monthly Mega Outreaches: Amplifying Impact
Once a month, our Drop-In Center hosts mega outreaches, bringing together medical teams to conduct tests for HIV, malaria, typhoid, and providing essential wound care. These gatherings can reach up to 300-400 boys. Timely medical intervention is crucial for their well-being.
Holidays of Hope: Spreading Joy Throughout the Year - During festive seasons like Christmas, New Year, EID, Ramadan, and Easter, our larger outreaches become a beacon of hope. We provide medical care, nourishment, bathing facilities, clothes washing, games, music, and crucial counseling sessions.
Holistic Support: Beyond medical care, our outreaches offer food, bathing and clothes-washing facilities, games, music, and counseling sessions – providing holistic support for their physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.
