We work to keep families together and children out of orphanages
Over 80% of the children living in orphanages in Uganda have at least one living parent. These children are being raised away from their families because of poverty, not because they are unloved or unwanted. At Abide we believe children grow best in families and so we fight everyday to help families go from barely surviving to thriving and to prevent family separation.
We use a holistic model that empowers our families to become independent through small business start ups. Over 79% of the business we help start are successful.
