Child Sponsorship

Bukanga Baptist’s child sponsorship program focus on improving the well-being of children in need, especially the most vulnerable. We are uniquely equipped to go to the community’s most broken, heart-wrenching places. Places where it’s hard to be a child. Places where other child sponsorship endeavours haven’t gone.

We take a holistic approach, working alongside communities to tackle the root causes of poverty and create sustainable change. For every child sponsored through Bukanga’s Child Development Center, another 4 children will also benefit. That’s because we work to strengthen the whole community, so all children can thrive.

Child sponsorship is the most cost-effective way to end child poverty. It not only addresses a child’s immediate physical needs, it also builds self-esteem and self-respect.

Education/Vocational Training

One of the biggest contributors to global poverty is lack of access to education. When you sponsor a child, your sponsorship will provide resources for school fees, uniforms, books and supplies – without which, your child might not be able to attend school. Your money will also provide basic necessities for the family.

 

With 53% of school enrolment being girls, these children are at greater risk for exploitation, child marriage, and lower income-earning potential. We address barriers to education and work with communities and local governments to improve the quality of education children receive.

Feeding & Nutrition

Proper nutrition is a powerful good: people who are well nourished are more likely to be healthy, productive and able to learn. Good nutrition benefits families, their communities in Luuka district.
Undernutrition is, by the same logic, devastating. It blunts the intellect, saps the productivity of everyone it touches and perpetuates poverty.

Stunting – or low height for age – traps people into a lifelong cycle of poor nutrition, illness, poverty and inequity. The damage to physical and cognitive development, especially during the first two years of a child’s life, is largely irreversible.

A child’s poorer school performance results in future income reductions of up to 22 per cent on average. As adults, they are also at increased risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Every child has the right to survive and thrive Bukanga CDC has helped reduce child mortality all over the world by working to reach the most vulnerable children, everywhere.

Health & Reproductive Health Training

All children have the right to survive and thrive. Yet, children and adolescents still face significant challenges surviving past infancy and developing to their full potential. We focus on ensuring child and maternal health by promoting health and nutrition practices and preventing major causes of disease.

Reproductive Health focuses on all aspects of human reproduction dedicated to adolescent health, female fertility and midwifery and all content is open access. Reproductive health is defined as a state of physical, mental, and social well-being in all matters relating to the reproductive system, at all stages of life.

A situation that threatens the health, lives, safety, security, livelihoods and well-being of large numbers of a population and causes a serious disruption of the functioning of a society, creating widespread human, material or environmental losses which exceed the ability of the society to cope using its own resources.

Child Protection

Across the nation, children are trapped by violence, war, child labor, and trafficking. Bukanga CDC protects children by looking out for their well-being: ensuring that communities are actively working to identify and support children in need; advocating for children’s rights; and providing for immediate needs, such as emergency shelter and essential care.

HIV/AIDS

In the global effort to end HIV and AIDS, children and adolescents continue to fall behind. New cases of infection still occur at birth, during breastfeeding and in adolescence; and not enough children and adolescents living with HIV have access to testing and life-saving treatment. As a result, hundreds die every day.

Discipleship Training

Leadership Training is not just another word for discipleship. Discipleship places the emphases on our spiritual growth, learning the Word and the disciplines and doctrines of the faith, which is paramount for all Christians. Training is the growth and learning in the area of a task that needs to be accomplished in the church to further the kingdom of God, such as a program, service or need.

Advocacy

We mobilise, amplify and harness voices – especially those of children – across the world to call for what is right, what is fair and what is just. We want to change the way the world works for children and create lasting, sustainable impact. We believe all children should be valued, listened to, included and nurtured within peaceful, reconciled and equal families, communities and societies.
