Kagogo Orphanage Centre-Uganda (KOC) is a Church based-community
Orphanage operating under Kagogo Christian life ministries with its
activities mainly directed to help, nurture and develop orphaned
and vulnerable children to become self-sustaining and constructive
to their communities. The orphanage operates under the
Ministry’s Childcare and counseling department and run by the
senior Pastor- Victoria kaddu. It was started in 2005 due to the
growing numbers of orphaned children and their increasing
vulnerabilities, between the ages of 3-15 years of age. The Home
has registered 35 children-23 girls and 12 boys. Although the need
is high, resources always limit us. It is currently supported by
our local church-Kagogo Christian life church only. Reg. No 2629
operating in Makulubita Sub County, Luweero District in Uganda.
KOC’s activities include among others, child development
including welfare and health, Education, psychosocial Counseling,
Evangelism and community development.
Its activities are mainly directed to equip
orphaned and vulnerable Children with adequate life skills,
increase access to community care systems, basic social services
and child friendly services under Christian values to give them the
opportunity to realize their full potential through improved
quality of life.
KOC is currently operating in Luweero district, in the central
region of Uganda. Their vulnerability is high considering the
abject poverty levels, increasing dropout rates of children from
schools, increasing HIV/Aids prevalence among children and the
communities, the increasing numbers of OVC’s in the area and
the increasing immoralities in societies. Its activities are
therefore directly or indirectly give hope and ultimate comfort to
the orphaned and the vulnerable children in Luweero.
We work in collaboration with Partner churches, OVC families,
schools and other educational institutions, health facilities and
partner organizations. We among others work in collaboration with
Bowa, Waluleeta and Bbale schools and other institutions and
organizations including Trust development agency (TRUDA), etc.
The large and growing number of orphans and other vulnerable
children (OVCs) poses a daunting challenge to those with
responsibilities to children including governments, communities,
families and aid organizations across Africa and the world over.
Uganda alone estimates to have close to two (2) million Ovcs having
lost at least one parent.
This calls for increased concern and interventions to the
governments, communities, organization and religious groups to
re-double their efforts in policy, commitment and funding to
improve the situation of OVCs both locally and internationally.
