Amatsiko Organisation

Amatsiko Organisation | Ugandan Children's Organisation Amatsiko to Construct Purpose Built Orphanage, Launch Funding Appeal | Scoop.it

A charity that supports orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda.

Alex Atuheire's insight:

Our mission is to provide quality education and affordable health care and to ensure that the orphans and vulnerable children are given equal rights, helping to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) around the Lake Bunyonyi region.


We believe that all children are born with potential; the potential to influence the future, the economy and even perhaps contribute something great to the world. However, children born in the village often don’t get the opportunity of going on to higher education due to poverty and a lack of guidance and motivation.

 

Amatsiko has been established to help improve the situation. Our general objectives are:

To help orphans and vulnerable children meet their basic needs in terms of nutrition and health careTo teach these children and their families about basic hygiene and the importance of good sanitation.To emphasise the importance of educating orphans and vulnerable children at all levelsTo support these children through educationTo educate community members about the rights and needs of orphans and vulnerable children.To encourage the moral and spiritual development of these childrenTo give guidance and counselling to orphans, vulnerable children and their families.

Children that have been registered with the project have already shown improvements in both their academic and personal lives. However this is just the beginning, our vision takes us much further. In the future we want to take a greater role in creating a better community. We want to see our children blossom spiritually, socially and economically and eventually be able to help improve their community in turn.

Alex Atuheire's insight:

We are a community based organisation. Amatsiko means Hope in Rukiga, the language of the Bakiga, the local tribe in Kabale district, south west Uganda. 


We are a community based organisation (CBO) operating from Bufuka village on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi, in Kabale district. Our mission is to respond to the needs of orphans and vulnerable children based around the lake, many of whom have lost their parents after the HIV/AIDS virus was brought to the area by a Ugandan Railway construction worker.


We aim to provide health care, quality education and basic resources in order to improve the lives of the children we help.

Our mission is to provide quality education and affordable health care and to ensure that the orphans and vulnerable children are given equal rights, helping to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) around the Lake Bunyonyi region. We believe that all children are born with potential; the potential to influence the future, the economy and even perhaps contribute something great to the world. However, children born in the village often don’t get the opportunity of going on to higher education due to poverty and a lack of guidance and motivation. The likelihood of children going on to reach their potential is further reduced when they are vulnerable or orphaned.
