Our tagline at SODAC is "off the streets and on their feet." Our goal is to provide street children and vulnerable children with rehabilitation, support and resettlement services. Right now our activities are primarily in Kampala, Uganda. We have a home and center where children from all over the slums come and participate in our activities and have a chance to enjoy life as a child. Our activities include educating them, giving the shelter, teaching them how to sing dance, acrobatics and other activities that we can participate in as a family and across African Countries. Currently there are 16 boys who live and sleep in the home. There are more than 50 other children who come from the streets and slums that we help. These are children who lives on the streets with no one to take care of them and with no one to cater for his/her welfare, such children are abandoned, rejected and neglected and society considers him/her as a detriment to the community or dangerous to society. Such children might be victims of war, natural disaster, and domestic violence, parents died of HIV/AIDS or absolute poverty in the family.
SODAC is deeply concerned with the increasing number of street children and our primary objective is to instill happiness and hope to vulnerable and street children.
- Remove children from the streets
- Rehabilitate children and resettle them back with their closest family members
- Provide material support in the form of basic necessities like shelter, food, medical care and education
- Provide fun activities such as soccer, basketball, dance, drama, singing, acrobatics, etc..
- Increase awareness about the life of vulnerable and street children through social media outreach
Right now we are a registered community based organization in Uganda. In addition, we are currently in the process of setting up the non-profit in CA with federal 501(c) 3 status. We expect to be officially incorporated as a non-profit in late June. Shortly after that, we will begin accepting donations and sponsorships on behalf of these children. Please check out our face book page and blog to know more about what is going on.
These are the children we help; they need help to go to school and many others things
