Lydia is the Chairperson of Masese I Child Protection Team in Uganda. She is also a ‘Lead Storyteller’ for her community. She'd like to introduce Nakimuli Scovia, who benefited from our education loan programme.
In Uganda, we work in partnership with six slum communities in and around Jinja to ensure that children are safer and better protected. Through this work with local communities, children are able to have a better start in life and their prospects for the future are greatly improved.
We now support six Child Protection Teams in six different communities (Loco, Masese I, Masese II, Masese III, Mafubira and Wandago) who serve to protect children living in their local areas. These teams of volunteers, trained and supported by our sister organisation Children on the Edge Africa, make a huge positive difference, not just to the children, but to the whole community.
