Children at SCCU

16 children are currently living at SCCU while up to 60 disadvantaged community children visit SCCU daily. The children staying with SCCU are mostly orphans without family members able to take care of them or single-parent children abandoned by their mother because she cannot afford to cater for them. The children visiting SCCU are mostly vulnerable children whose parents cannot pay for their basic welfare and schooling or children staying away from home due to mistreatment or family disputes. Some of these children are helped by SCCU to go to school while others spend most of their day in the streets collecting scrub to earn money. The children come to SCCU to have lunch during weekends, play, make homework, watch television and participate in the football, music and dance activities organized by SCCU.

Joshua is the founder of SCCU. He was 11 years old when his mother died and he had no other option than to live on the streets. He has never known his father. For three years he lived on the streets and survived by collecting plastic bottles and other scrub he could sell. At age 14 an Ugandan football player who played on the national team discovered Joshua’s talent for football. Because of his talent he was able to get a sponsorship for a boarding school to finish secondary level.



Ken is the co-founder of the organisation. Ken and Joshua met while they were both living on the streets and consider themselves brothers. Ken evaded street life when he joined a music and dance team that helped him to finish secondary level. Today Ken is working as a waiter and spends his spare time with the kids teaching them music and dance.
