Meet the Children

The children of Kassanda Children’s Aid (KCA) and those who attend Kassanda Seed School (KSS) are those who come from poor, broken families and all of them have lost at least one parent, often to HIV/AIDS. Getting an education is beyond their reach because of lack of resources or land, because there are no job opportunities for their parent or guardian or because their guardian is too sick to work. Public education is not free in Uganda and if children try to go to school without paying school fees, having supplies and a uniform, they are driven away from the school in shame and left to endless days with no hope to get out of poverty. Please take some time to read their stories and let their reality sink in. We can provide HOPE for these children. It’s that simple.
