Shule Outreaches

It all starts on the streets…

In Uganda, over 15,500 children live on the streets, their innocent faces reflecting the harsh realities of life. But there is hope. Shule Foundation, a nonprofit organization, is dedicated to breaking the cycle of street life and transforming the futures of these boys.

Our journey begins with weekly outreaches. Our passionate volunteers devote their time to building relationships with the boys living in Kampala and Mbale. They walk the streets, reaching out to these vulnerable children and creating connections that can change lives.

Weekly Outreach

During our weekly outreaches at our Skills Training and Drop-In Center, we engage with the boys on a personal level. We listen to their stories, their dreams, and their fears. Through one-on-one interactions, we offer counseling and guidance, providing a safe space where they can express themselves freely.

We also believe in empowering these children with knowledge and understanding of their rights. We engage in meaningful discussions about children's rights, ensuring they know their entitlements and can advocate for themselves.

But our support doesn't end there. We provide urgent medical care to address their immediate health needs. We understand that a healthy body and mind are essential for these boys to embark on a brighter future. We offer showers and provide food to nourish their bodies and souls.

Monthly Outreach

Our commitment goes beyond weekly outreaches. Once a month, we join hands with other organizations and corporations to create a day filled with joy, laughter and hope for these children. This monthly outreach brings together a wide range of activities and services.

The day starts with registration, ensuring that every child is welcomed and included. We distribute clothes to provide them with the basic necessities they deserve. Through counseling and workshops, we equip them with the tools to navigate their journey away from the streets.

Personal hygiene is essential, so we provide showers and haircuts, allowing them to feel refreshed and confident. We believe that every child deserves a healthy start, which is why we offer HIV testing, TB screening, deworming, and other medical care to ensure their well-being.

But it's not all seriousness; we believe in the power of joy and connection. Food, beverages, music, dancing, and games create an atmosphere of celebration where these children can experience the simple pleasures every child should have.
