CARE FOR THOSE THAT NEED IT THE MOST!
A Few Words About Us
Byakatonda Care Foundation was founded in 2019 to provide care and access to basic necessities to the most destitute members of Mulama village [mainly the elderly and children]. In 2020, Our benefactors and operations were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent lock downs that wrecked a lot of livelihoods and families allover the country just like the beneficiaries of our services. By 2022, it was prevalent that the problems we had previously set out to solve had grown exponentially- with the pandemic came other issues that did not leave Ugandan society the same; a huge spike in the cases of child abuse & neglect, domestic violence, teenage pregnancies & school dropouts etc. At this point it was as clear as day that only a concerted effort can alleviate and eventually change this situation not just in Mulama village but allover the country and with some success in mobilizing and fundraising, Byakatonda Care foundation was then officially registered in 2022 by the National Bereau of NGO’s; registration number 6149.

A two pronged strategy: alleviation and Root cause focused problem solving
The root cause or major factor that most undermines human dignity or exacerbates the risk of child abuse & neglect, elderly neglect, gender based violence, early marriage, tennage pregnancies, malnutrition, high STI & HIV prevalence and disintergration of families is poverty.
To make an impact now and in the future, our team devised a two pronged strategy that alleviates the suffering of those most in need[living in abject poverty] to improve their quality of life while simultaneously attacking poverty at it’s root to reduce the risk of poverty and the challenges it breeds in the future
Those most in need[destitute] are supported with immediate basic needs like food,mattresses, medication while those at are at high risk[vulnerable] are supported through our skilling and tooling programs [tailoring, hair styling etc coupled with computer skills and acquiring of necessary equipment] to help them enter the money economy able to generate household incomes to support them and their families.
