Orphan Rescue and Care

Community Network For Orphans Uganda (CNFOUG) works with members of the community and other stakeholders like the police to identify orphans, abandoned and abused children in need of care and protection.

With support of the community, we identify orphans, abused and abandoned children in need of care and protection. We place the children with trained foster parents in a single family home. The children receive basic necessities, food, education, health care and mental health support.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Families

Community Network For Orphans Uganda focuses on strengthening our foster families - both financially and economically. We provide business capital, tools, skills training, personal financial management, budgeting and marketing for their products and services. Our cooperative business programs expand access to diverse skills training by recruiting diverse business mentors. We offer in home business training services to those foster parents who cannot otherwise attend group training at our community center.

This strategy is an “impact-first” financing model where adoptive parents continue to receive resources based on how engaged they are across program key objectives.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Caregivers

Community Network For Orphans Uganda runs a free community library open to all at risk community members, children and youth of all ages. The library is a free community resource that offers free tutor sessions, reading books, reference materials, reading tablets, group games, arts/crafts, music as therapy, dance, and drama.

During school breaks the library runs a feeding program and a safe space for children to receive age appropriate literacy support to avoid loss of reading skills and knowledge. This is done to encourage children to develop a reading culture.
