Kids Club Kampala is a UK charity working to bring hope and love to vulnerable children in the slums of Uganda. We aim to overcome the lack of hope and self-esteem of children living in situations of extreme poverty by empowering communities to bring about sustainable changes. Our vision is to see children’s lives transformed, communities empowered and poverty reduced throughout Uganda’s slums.
Working in partnership with our team in Uganda, we focus on providing access to education, keeping children safe, meeting basic needs and strengthening families. Through lots of fundraising and hard work over the last 10 years we have provided 1.5 million hot nutritious meals to hungry children; given free education to over 1000 children; facilitated counselling sessions for over 3000 vulnerable young people; provided vital skills training to over 700 vulnerable women; and reunited almost 100 children back with loving families through our Ewafe project.
During the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown in Uganda, we adapted their work to support the most vulnerable families with food to ensure that they did not starve. As a result, over the past 4 months we have given out over 1 million food parcels to over 150,000 individuals in desperate need.
We launched an emergency fundraising appeal which has so far raised over £46,000, enabling us to scale up and adapt our work to respond to the increase in poverty and hunger in Uganda’s slums. This has had a huge impact and provided over 30,000 households with over 1 million food parcels in less than 4 months.
infoodle has helped us to raise these vital funds by segmenting our data, enabling us to tailor email asks and automate thank you emails, keep track of donations coming in and communicate our impact to our supporters.
