Our mission

 

The vision of this particular program is to effect the mitigation of the adverse effects of AIDS on the hapless children, through the community as ‘an army of compassion givers

MISSION
 

To support a community approach to assisting children and communities affected by AIDS through provision of access to education, food, shelter, psychosocial support and other rights and equities accruing to children.

BACKGROUND.

SSK is an independent, indigenous non-governmental organization with the prime mandate of providing an education -- formal and/or vocational -- to desperately poor, neglected and forgotten orphans whose parents have died of AIDS. SAVE STREET KIDS assists children with AIDS and widows that have lost their spouses to AIDS and most of them HIV+ themselves. The organization was started in 2003 By Timothy Allan , to address the growing need of orphans mainly due to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Though started as a community based organization SSK soon needed to upgrade to a nongovernmental organization to better handle the anticipated future characterized by abject poverty and the unending spread of HIV/AIDS. So from 2005, SSK is a fully fledged independent organization with headquarters at Mafubira, 2 kilometers from Jinja, a town in near eastern Uganda, about two hours away from Kampala the capital (and only city) of Uganda. SSK now works in the;

1. Provision of formal education for orphans and vulnerable children,
2. Orphans Placement
3. Empowering widows financially and psychologically, fighting poverty through pursuing income generating activities,
4. Community HIV/AIDS sensitization and care for communities about AIDS, people living with AIDS (PLWA),
5. Spreading the word of a caring God.

SSK operates a primary school established in Mafubira Sub County in Jinja District with 250 children and a children`s home which accommodates 67 children.
It also has a church facility that serves a community of over 10,000 people with a regular attendance of 300 members. Our activities include needy community women and households affected by HIV/AIDS empowerment. We have 40 active grass root inter-denominational community based groups, called Support Care Groups (SCG’s). Each of these groups has a leader, treasure and secretary.
SSK is headed by a competent six (6) member Board of Directors. The Executive Director is the overall management officer responsible for the three major departments that are headed by departmental heads. The executive Director is assisted by a program administrator who is the head of the management team that comprises of all departmental heads. The 30 staff member team that runs SSK program activities includes social workers, teachers, counselors, administrative and logistical staff. SSK is affiliated to Miracle center church and other NGOs and CBOs in and around Jinja District.


Past performance:
 

SSK as an organization has been relatively successful (compared against its capacity) in mobilizing and motivating the community and church to practically meet the critical needs of PLWHA in their midst. The 40 SCG’s have up to date catered for about 600 families affected by HIV/AIDS by giving them practical home based care, encouraging their families, (most of whom are children) and giving counsel about their critical needs, some of them being:
• Development and advocacy programs for the orphans.
• Economic empowerment for the widows and orphans.
• Counseling for support and AIDS education.
• Community education to reduce stigma and motivate volunteer support for PLWHA’s and orphans, especially those in child-headed households.
Indeed SSK is usually overwhelmed, due to the magnitude of the problem, and resources at its disposal. As such, SSK encourages a sense of sheer sacrifice among the SCG’s, and at times they practically walk to the homes of the sick and affected, offering the most lethal weapon in their possession, prayer. SSK relies on individual donors to fund its programs. Up until now SSK has been able to meet the enormous challenge of child education of 500 children, community empowerment of 300 households, and HIV/AIDS community sensitization and care through individual supporters. SSK has carried out the following project
