Community Work

Feeding Programme

The community surrounding the orphanage relies on growing their own crops to provide food for their families and to make ends meet. When the harvest fails, as a result of a lack of rain, there is a severe lack of food resulting in starvation and, sometimes, death.

The local diet is not elaborate � the staple food is pocho made from maize flour and water. Another relatively inexpensive staple is matooke (made from banana).

ALLHIM aims to raise funds to feed those children in the orphanage who are not sponsored, as well as the needy in the community.

Only at Christmas (and possibly Easter) will the children have a change to their diet when they enjoy a meal of chicken and rice. This, however, is only possible by the generous donations received.

Family Support

The Charity supports the extended family of the pupils by providing food parcels and other types of essential aid as and when needed. An example of this is a visit made at Christmas 2009 to deliver a food parcel to a local family. On arriving, it was found that the front wall of the widow�s house had completely collapsed. As well as offering food, the Charity supported the rebuild of the damaged section of the house.

This work is only possible through regular donations to the general fund.

Action for Children and Young People Uganda (ACYP)

In partnership with Micheal Mwebaza (Founder of Action for Children and Young People Uganda (ACYP)), ALLHIM is reaching out to the poor in the community.

For those living in extreme poverty, ACYP provides training in the skills villagers need to support themselves and live a much healthier lifestyle, thus reducing susceptibility to diseases prevalent in the area. One very simple solution is to provide a pig or goat for the family to rear. In so doing, the animal�s litter can be sold, providing a regular income. Over a short period of time (1-2 years) it is hoped families will be able to support themselves and take them out of the poverty trap.

ALLHIM is excited to be part of this work, which will empower young people and their families to become self-sufficient.
