S.A.L.V.E. is a small UK and Ugandan charity working hard to reduce the number of young people on the streets of Jinja, Uganda through education. We support children on the streets to return to their families (or another loving family) and to re-enter education.

We believe that:

  • No young person should have to live or work on the street.
  • Young people who have lived on the street deserve the chance to fulfil their potential.
  • Young people on the street should have trustworthy supportive adults around them.

We have successfully resettled 44 children to a safe family home in the last 12 months. Where it is not possible to arrange for the child to be resettled home straight away, we provide a caring place for the child at the S.A.L.V.E. Rehabilitation Home and support the child’s education whilst working towards their future family resettlement.

We run a street outreach and drop in service in Jinja town which is accessed by up to 50 of the 1000 + children on the streets daily. This allows our staff to build trusting relationships with the young people and to assist them to take the first steps in accessing our services and the child’s eventual move home. 

We run skills development projects for the families of children under S.A.L.V.E. sponsorship to help them increase incomes and to support their children at home. Participants of our Enterprise Programmes who we have helped to set up their own enterprises have enjoyed increases of up to twenty six times more than their previous household incomes. 

With your help, S.A.L.V.E. wants to build a better future for the next generation.

Thank you for your support.
