Child Care in Africa

Lumu Community Based Africa Child Care Center is a pre-primary school center for orphan and poor children, low income families and youth programs in the Nansana area of Wakiso District of Kampala – Central Uganda . The focus of the school is to provide quality education and health care programs to students of disadvantaged families, students who ordinarily would become victims of poverty.

Lumu Community Based Africa Child Care Center currently caters for 140 children, who attend classes from Monday to Friday. The center has 7 staff members (4 teachers, 1 cook, 1 security personnel and the Project Director). Through donor funding and tuition (where possible), the school plans to expand its program to include youth and adult literacy and primary education in the future.

Lumu Community Based Africa Child Care Center recommends that volunteers apply for a CTA visa and offers free transportation. Please contact your host, Jimmy, for more information about these practicalities
