How the project is Managed
KASA programme has a board responsible for monitoring the progress of KASA programmes, guiding, advising, and giving directions. It approves all the programmes of the unit.
The programme is headed by Director, who is a social worker responsible for monitoring and supervising staff members, volunteers, and supervises all programme activities.
Staff members and volunteers are responsible for running day to day programme activities and give report to the director for scrutiny.
Currently, 48 children are benefiting from this programme and other children have been re-united with their relatives because their parents are not alive.
KASA programme rescue children from the streets and bring them to KASA for counselling and advice on behavioural matters. KASA supports orphans whose parents died because of HIV/AIDS, accidents, and other related diseases. Others are most vulnerable children. They are fed, clothed, sheltered, given medication, and given chance to acquire Education.
We do some out-reaches to visit street kids who are still on the streets, home visitations and community sensitisation. Our children are in boarding schools, others study while staying at KASA. Please kindly support KASA in one of these programmes for the well being of KASA children in Kabale, Uganda.
Welcome To KASA
KASA programme gives a chance to every street kid and other vulnerable children through provision of school fees, school necessities, and personal
needs at school
KASA kids acquire education through sponsorship scheme.
Sponsor a child at KASA programme now in primary, secondary, vocational college or university and give him or her chance to be a child again and be self sufficient.
PROVISION OF SCHOLASTIC MATERIALS.
KASA staff provides scholastic materials to all KASA children regardless of their sex, religion and culture so long as the kid is identified to be a beneficiary of KASA programme.
Children receive scholastic materials to use at school.
KASA kids and staff do some agricultural activities as an effective intervention programme for street children for purposes of having food security at KASA.
This is done on a rented land which is used for growing sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, green vegetables and beans. We use our local tools like hoes and pangas as the cheapest means of farming system in our culture. Support KASA kids or come to volunteer and experience our cultures.
CYCLE REPAIRS (reassembling)
Our children are trained in repairing bicycles and cars as part of development skills with intention of imparting skills for self sufficiency to earn a living.
SAND PLAY THERAPY TRAINING
It was an excitement when Sand play therapy was introduced in KASA programme for the first time. Our children are interested and committed to learning sand play. They have began to practice sand play on their own.
Shawn is a 5 year old boy. He likes to perfom sand play and toys too and to discover new things; he is so innovative and creative in nature.
GAMES AND SPORTS
KASA kids and volunteers participate in different types of games and sports with other children from other organisations. They like foot ball matches, netball and other interesting games; they also play with toys too. We do these as a way of gaining their trust, physical health and preparing these children to start schooling.
GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING
KASA programme has qualified and committed social workers with skills in guidance and counselling children.
Volunteers train our children in life development skills, life skills like knowing and living with one self, skills of knowing and living with others, and skills of making useful and effective decisions. We do these to help traumatised children who will eventually regain belonging and shed off the street child mindset. Please partner with us and we help this young generation.
We also do reconciliation between the children and their relatives to bring back their relationships in the families after tracing where children originate.
This helps re-uniting the children and their relatives. Children receive packages from the director and one the staff members in presence of their relatives in their home.
This Programme helps identify schools for these children basing on the childrens behaviour,age and aptitude. and we do this through
→Literacy and numeracy
→Soliciting for school fees,scholastic materials and sponsorship
→After the primary education ,the children proceed to secondary schools ,vocational institutions according to their ability and availabilty of resources.
→If they are sufficiently rehabiliiated they can be re-united with their relatives and community.
