Past PROJECTS

Child Protection

 

There are very big numbers of separated children, unaccompanied children and minors in Kyangwali refugee settlement. Other children live with foster families, guardians and good Samaritans. These children are highly exposed to various forms of abuse ranging from hard labour, defilement, rape, denying them food as a form of punishment, no education, no medical care, harsh punishments and torture among others.

Women and girls football competition

Women and girls in most African societies are marginalized and discriminated against on various fronts of society. Women and girls in Kyangwali refugee settlement face various challenges including but not limited to SGBV, discrimination in decision making in their homes and the community wellbeing, and economic deprivation among others. Uniting these people with a common problem can give them the unifying voice that they need to protect and promote their own rights.

OVC VOCATIONAL SKILLS AND AGRICULTURAL SUPPORT PROJECT

The stinging levels of unemployment and poverty among Uganda’s rural communities have brought misery to all kind people including girls, women and the youth in the rural areas. OVC households in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement and the host community have been hit most by the ever increasing levels of unemployment and poverty. OVC households lack a means of livelihood and skills to fend for themselves in the hard economic times.

HIV/AIDS Awareness, Dramas and Music Projects

In Uganda, Close to 1.6 million people live with HIV out of whom 96,000 are children below 14 years. Orphans due to Aids are estimated to be 660,000 yet the country loses 28,000 people to Aids annually according to the study by UNAIDS. Kyangwali refugee settlement is a multi-cultural area that needs multi-cultural approach to solve the problem of HIV/AIDS.

In light of the above situation, P4T organized educative music, dramas and plays and VCT to create awareness and test the community members to know their HIV status.
