Think something new

At a fee of $30 per month, child sponsorship is very possible and with such and more we are in position to create lasting impact for a child at our orphanage home With this amount we are in position to provide education, food, clothing and medical care for the children.

Upon accepting to sponsor a child, we give you access to the children profiles so that you could choose a specific child you wish to sponsor. In the due term you always write letters to them and they too write to you

What about it? Child sponsorship

Education Child sponsorship

Child sponsorship is the most effective way to raise children out of poverty. Through our sponsorship program you can sponsor a child, sponsor a college student, or sponsor a home.

Child sponsorship allows you to witness the strength of your giving first hand. See a child rise up from an unthinkable past to a bright future because of your sponsorship.

One Dollar a day gives a child at Cherish Aid foundation the resources needed to get adequate care and an education.

Many children in Uganda have been orphaned as a result of the country’s HIV/AIDS epidemic and war in the nearby countries like Sudan and now as a result many orphans are living alone or with one of their extended family; this means that in every family there is an orphan living with them.

Some of these children are living on the streets of Kampala and other towns with no access to education, health care, shelter and feeding. As a result, many find their way into crime. That’s why initiatives like (Cherish Aid foundation) have been put into place, in order to assimilate these children into society and give the children vision, future prospects. We are making a real difference in their lives. We cannot ignore the plight of these children any more.It is time to accept our responsibility as a caring community and work to make a positive change in the lives of children

Community Sanitation & hygiene

With our community outreaches, we empower various hurting communities in the further rural areas of Uganda. Join us and help create lasting impacts.

In this project we help communities with cleaning their water facilities for a good sanitation, good health and wellbeing.

Water and sanitation are essential for life and health, but they are also essential for dignity, empowerment and prosperity. Water and sanitation are human rights, fundamental to every child and adult. But in Uganda, poor sanitation and hygiene, as well as unequal access to safe drinking water, make thousands of children very sick and at risk of death.
 
Diarrhoea alone, one of three major childhood killers in Uganda, kills 33 children every day. 

In most cases, children get the disease by drinking unsafe water or coming into contact with contaminated hands — theirs or parents or caregivers — that have not been washed with soap. 

Early childhood diarrhoea is not only deadly; it also contributes to Uganda’s high levels of stunting, which in turn affects children’s cognitive development and performance at school. In school, lack of proper sanitation facilities also leads to high absenteeism and dropouts, especially for girls.

Access to improved water and sanitation facilities does not, on its own, necessarily lead to improved health. It needs another step: there is now very clear evidence showing the importance of hygienic behaviour — especially hand washing with soap after defecating and before eating or preparing food — to health improvement. 

Another key to reducing childhood illness and death is to stop using open fields or the bush as toilets. In Uganda, nearly a tenth of the population practices open defecation, and two thirds of households do not wash with soap. 

It is poor people who carry the greatest burden of poor sanitation. The poorest 20 percent of the population is 13.5 times more likely to defecate in the open than the wealthiest 20 percent, according to the World Bank.
