Holistic Child and Youth Programs
Sunshine Urban Foundation channels long-term aid to a holistic program including health and nutrition, protection, youth education and empowerment and early childhood development interventions. We focus particularly on the needs of the urban poor children and youth especially those living in slums.
Our goal is to ensure that all children and youth within the program enjoy their right to a protective and nurturing environment within which their normal cognitive, psychological, social and physical development can be assured.
Our specific objectives are:
- To support the development of comprehensive child and youth programs targeting poor urban communities in Uganda.
- To improve the quality of holistically delivered services through the provision of resources, capacity building and development and to increase their awareness and access to holistic programs.
- To strengthen the capacity of communities to sustainably respond to the challenges posed by poverty, illiteracy, urbanization, climate change and HIV/AIDS.
- To offer volunteer opportunities for students, interns and any professional wishing to spend time working with poor urban communities to bring about sustainable development.
