Dream Children’s Ministry – Uganda is a young charity with a big vision.
“Our mandate from God is to restore hope by meeting the spiritual, physical and educational needs of HIV/AIDS orphaned, homeless, street and vulnerable children who are being left to struggle in the Ugandan district of Jinja as well as in Ugandan communities at large through the provision of education, medication, shelter, basic needs, food and spiritual growth.”
Dream children’s ministry Uganda (DCM-U) is a Community Based Organization founded on the pillars of love, hope and desire for change. DCM-U works to address the needs and aspirations of the underprivileged using a holistic approach directed specifically towards poverty reduction. The organization was started in 2013, registered in 2014 and currently working on proving support to the orphans, needy, street and vulnerable children in Wairaka Village (Kakira Sub county) and in Wairaka Town (Jinja district) where our office is located.
We focus on improving the general welfare of the rural poor through reduction of poverty by providing Education sponsorship and life skills to the children. In addition, DCM-U seeks to improve the health of the community by alleviating diseases through education and medical support.
We also strive to improve on the mental health of boys and girls affected and afflicted by HIV/AIDS, domestic violence, and teenage pregnancy, among others.
We go out to communities and provide adolescents with information about sexual reproductive health, career guidance and HIV/AIDS in order to encourage them to not only abstain from sex before marriage but also to use safer sex methods to reduce unwanted pregnancies, school dropouts and early marriages, which have provided a fertile ground for poverty and disease to thrive.
We also seek to help Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) attain education, through the offering of educational scholarships in which we provide scholastic materials and school fees. As such, we solicit and manage sponsorships of individual children, which cover their educational and personal needs and provide an avenue for relationship, if desired, between sponsors and their sponsored child.
