Where We Work

Uganda

For years now, Uganda has been experiencing episodes of violence perpetrated by the Lord Resistance Army. For this reason, since 2000 COOPI has been working in the country to support women and children above anything else. The purpose is two-fold: preventing sexual violence on the one hand and fighting mothers and children manlnutrition on the other.

Since 2006, we are here with child sponsorship. We are currently managing 3 child sponsorship projects in one area of the country, the capital Kampala. In this area, we guarantee the right to education to children living on the outskirts of a slum, where limited access to water, high rates of unemployment and violence make their living conditions extremely harsh. In the same slum, we provide care for children who have been orphaned or abandoned because of their mental/physical disabilities or because they are HIV positive. All these projects are managed in partnership with local organisations.
