Support Orphans & Street Children in Uganda

OVC Economic Empowerment Program

Uganda orphansThe ultimate goal of this program is to reinforce the capacity of caregivers and societies to address the financial issues to ensure Northern Uganda vulnerable children are able to access vital services, including safety, healthcare, education, and other basic needs.

We work hand in hand with parents and guardians of Northern Uganda orphans, special needs children, community and local community leaders to advocate and support them in every way possible.

Under FoTN’s OEE program the following are addressed;

Financial education:

Friends of The Nations offers financial education to enable local communities make wise financial decisions. It teaches Northern Ugandan poor communities to save more, spend less, borrow sensibly, and manage debt with discipline services, from money transfers to insurance.

Income-generating activity:

FoTN trains its local communities in our target areas to carry out law-abiding activities that can enhance household income and living standards, including backyard agricultural/livestock production, brick making, micro- enterprises, handicrafts, briquettes making etc.

Vocational Skills Training:

We engage our children into productive vocational skill classes where they are trained with variety of income generating skills such as crafts, paper match, soap making, tailoring, sweater knitting and other life skills that greatly empower these children to live independent lives.

Village savings and loans:

FoTN advocates and support local savings & loan group formation. Members pool savings and provide loans with interest to each other. We train loan group leaders on useful leadership & loan management skills to better serve the purpose for which the money was borrowed.

Join us in our cause as we transform the lives of the vulnerable Ugandan children.
