The war in Northern Uganda brought about an influx of street children in Kampala. Today, many street children (girls) under the age of 18 are raped and impregnated if not infected with HIV. They teach their babies to beg as early as 8 months.The sight of these scenes is very heart breaking. The boys either become robbers or drug addicts. Majority don't even know what a tooth brush is.
"A number of them we have talked to are willing to go to school"
We have identified a school that can habour them regardless of their social stature.The principal has assured us that during the holidays, they can stay at school and utilise the school dormitories since they have no homes. If only we can raise some money to get a number of them into decent schools where they can socialize with the right people, their lives will change forever. Lets do this together for humanities sake.
