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

member

Kasa Programme is a fully Registered Non Profit and Non Governmental Community based Organisation under Registration Number 2332 at the district level and 80020000472573 at the National level in Uganda,East Africa. We help the street kids to get off the streets of Kabale town. On the streets of Kabale Town in the morning hours, lunch time and evenings and at night you can not fail to see street children especially boys between the ages of 6 and 13 years who roam the streets in groups.
They walk from one rubbish bin to another searching for something to eat because this is their only source of food . They wear dirty and torn clothes as a result of their habitation which is usuall trenches,culverts,bushes,verandahs and unfinished building structures.They are addicted to sniffing glue or petrol , drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana and frequently fight among themselves. They even steal passersby by making some areas of the town dangerous for visitors and residents alike. This state of affairs prompted the Director who is a social worker by profession to intervene.The current caretaker, being a qualified social worker, met and socialized with street kids of all walks of life. Of the over 20 street kids engaged, 4 who were less hostile were offered accommodation at the Director's residence.The rest would have meals at the director's residence and go back to the street.They were brought to her place of abode to receive the basics of a home, or at least to have a homely environment in fairly good measure. As the kids numbers swelled,a good samaritan offered to rent a bigger home for the kids thus KASA was able to have a center in 2010

Children receive scholastic materials to use at school.




AGRICULTURE

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.

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.

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.


HOME VISITATION

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.
