Caring For Communities At Home And Abroad
Child Hope Ministries
Child Hope Ministries is a not-for-profit community-based organisation that was formed by local people with a vision to support, unite and promote community development in vulnerable communities in Jinja, Uganda, and neighbouring districts. Its goal is to promote community empowerment by building facilities to house HIV/AIDS prevention programmes, care services, income generating activities and education.
How are we helping?
In 2014, we donated funds to build a classroom in the grounds of the Child Hope Ministries orphanage, enabling the charity to educate more of its resident children. In 2016, DCW purchased the roof for an expanded children’s home on the site, and we pay the home’s rent each month to enable the charity’s limited funds to stretch further.
Our Work In Kibera
Only three miles from the affluent city of Nairobi, Kibera is one of Africa’s largest slums which houses approximately one million people in squalid conditions. One in five children in Kibera don’t survive beyond the age of five due to the lack of sanitation and the associated prevalence of vermin. DCW has partnered with a local charity, Riziki, to help manage the waste in Kibera.
How are we helping?
We employed four young men who first carried out a major village-wide clean-up around an area of 500 homes during which all waste was removed. They now operate an effective sack collection service for general waste, food waste and recycling. The recycling is sold to traders, the food waste is composted to be sold to local farmers, and the general waste goes to landfill. We also appointed a local manager with an existing commercial waste collection service. We equipped him with a 12-tonne refuse truck to replace his hand cart. This has allowed him to expand his commercial waste rounds to other areas of Nairobi, which in turn subsidises collections in Kibera for those who cannot pay. The project is now self-funding and expanding every year, creating jobs, improving sanitation and engendering more respect for the people that collect the waste.
