We finally graduated the first group of 18 residents at the Amasiko Halfway house in a colourful function that was presided over by the child protection and welfare officer of the Uganda Police. It was a jovial mood and the excitement from parents and children was just something worth jubilating.

We are so proud of the children that have been under our care and we believe that they are going to be successful in the world. Our children are great mechanics, welders and tailors equipped with literacy and numeracy skills too!

We appreciate everyone that has supported us and we call upon you to support us even more as we are going to take on another group in the month of December. Remember, for us, "Its opportunities, not aid"

Volunteer Opportunities

– Give the gift of your time and skills.
There are many ways to provide opportunities to those that we walk alongside in Africa, one of the most valuable is to physically walk alongside those who have so little, offering the gift of your time and skills.

Alongside Africa has two volunteer programs; Volunteering in Uganda or UK.
