WHO ARE WHERE?
Good Care Uganda Foundation (GCUF) is a not-for-profit — Non Governmental Organization (NGO). It was established in 2000 as Community Based Organisation and is legally incorporated and registered under the laws of the Government of Uganda (GOU).
Good Care Uganda Foundation partners with organizations to help meet basic needs of the population in Uganda with a focus on communities which are home to some of the world’s most economically vulnerable persons.
This work includes providing education, food security and nutrition, medical care, socio-economic empowerment, psycho-social support and capacity building. We are passionate about creating positive change in our communities.
The organisation believes in the inherent potential in human beings that we ensure effective delivery of health, nutrition, education and social services as vehicles of social change.
Most children from surrounding high density suburbs and informal settlements are exposed to crammed living conditions, (indecent accommodation), poor sanitary conditions, inadequate food and rampant drug and alcohol abuse. The majority of these children are orphaned and vulnerable living in single parent headed, grandparent headed or child headed households.
Our community development approach aims at addressing historical imbalances through collective empowerment, facilitating processes that help the poor, vulnerable and marginalized to regain control over their lives.
