Hope Drop In Centre

Hope Child Care Centre (HCCC) is a 2 ½ acre property on the outskirts of Kampala, the the capital of Uganda, that has recently been leased by United Caribbean Trust's African arm “African Bureau of Child Discipleship” (ABCD).

The HCCC is home to the currently redundant Jack & Ethel Educational Centre orphanage in Uganda. It is ideally located to establish the girls Hope Drop In Centre for the street children (girls) of Kampala.

Reports from African Network for the Prevention and Protection against Child Abuse and Neglect (ANPPCAN) indicate that the number of street children in Uganda has increased from 4000 in 1993 to over 10,000 in 2013, signifying an increase of 70 percent.

Information from Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) indicates that over 16 new children join the Kampala streets every day.

The majority are said to be orphans under the care of step mothers, or are school drop outs from very poor families, some were abandoned by their families, or subjected to abuse and also indentified to be from very large families.

According to ANPPCAN, an organization that caters for children’s rights, there are individuals and groups that are trafficking children for economic benefits. In exchange they remit a monthly fee of shs 20,000 to the sending family.

Despite the reasons that force these kids to town, they are subjected to harsh environment such as being vulnerable to physical attacks which negatively impact their lives.

Some (girls) are defiled and raped at the same time; they lack enough food, sleep in dirty places and lack health services.
