Special Feeding Program
Responding to Food Insecurities
The shortage of food is a common reality in all the locations where we serve. With the help of our ministry collaborators on the ground, CARITAS is dedicated to long-term strategies to tackle this issue.
The Special Feeding Program is a way to fund Food Management and Development. Fish farms, agricultural farms, chickens, and other livestock lead to local empowerment, self-reliance, and lasting resources for the community.
CARITAS for Children is dedicated to meeting the local needs, while encouraging participation, building skills, investing in agricultural initiatives, and creating a growing and renewable source of food for the poorest of the poor, especially abandoned, orphaned, and vulnerable children.
Responding to Emergency Situations
This fund is also used when food relief is desperately needed. These may be during times of drought, epidemics, locusts, mudslides, earthquakes – and other serious natural disasters.
Literacy Program in Uganda
Schools in Uganda have limited and/or no resources for books.
OUR SOLUTION is to offer a mobile library, utilizing the primary method of local transportation in rural Uganda—the Boda Boda.
OUR GOAL is to optimize literacy rates, reduce dropout rates, and create stronger and more peaceful communities.
WE PROVIDE books, insights, and literary support, while interfacing with local Ugandan educational partners.
ADDITIONAL INITIATIVES we’ve created include school vegetable gardens, a soccer and netball sports league, an outreach program for girls who have dropped out of school, and initiatives to assist teen mothers.
All of these activities utilize literacy for social change.

Water Filtration Systems For Uganda
Illness, hunger, and absenteeism from school are a child’s reality when clean water is not available. With your donation of $100 to the Water Filtration Program a Ugandan family in need will receive an H2MicrO bucket filter from Stonehouse Water Technologies that will provide them with a quick, easy method of making sure their water is safe and clean. Together we can ensure a child has clean water!
