Providing for the Very Neediest
The Peace Centre provides for orphaned children, situated in Bukinda, south west Uganda. We only support children who are genuinely needy, and go through a rigorous background checking process to ensure this. The vast majority of our children are double orphans who have no immediate family. Typically their parents have died of AIDS, and most of our children are two or more years behind in school because they have not been able to afford the fees.
The needs of different children vary, and we run two programmes, one focused specifically on the provision of education, and the other, for those who have nowhere left to turn, is a residential programme with children living full-time at The Peace Centre.
The PEACE Programme
Providing Education and Community Empowerment
1-to-1 Peace Centre Sponsorship
Providing full care for extreme cases where children are abandoned, with no caregivers to look after them
Education for All
Each of our children attends primary and secondary school, as well as receiving vocational training in practical life skills
Our children receive filling and healthy meals each day, with great emphasis placed on their physical and mental wellbeing
A Caring Community
Our children develop a genuine sense of belonging as part of a community that looks out for and supports one another
I am happy to be at The Peace Centre because there is electricity. Before I came here I had no electricity and it was dark and scary at night.
Everything we do revolves around building caring relationships. Our children commit to make a meaningful contribution, giving back to Bukinda's community.
