Family Care Uganda

Family Care Uganda is a team of full-time, non-salaried volunteers. FCU has been registered in Uganda for 10 years and their main focus is establishing a fully self-sustained project for orphans in Gulu who were born to child soldiers during the war. They are developing a horticultural farm, building housing and a school for the children, and hope to bring alternative ideas for poverty eradication to the local communities in the area.

FCU is developing a fully self-sustainable project by building a farm into the school in order to help the school become economically self-reliant. In addition to academic training and sports, the students will also be taught animal husbandry and farming - allowing them to contribute to the sucess of the school and broaden their skill set.

Vicky is 12 and lives alone with her younger sister, with no relatives or parents to help them. Since having the opportunity to join the school, she has blossomed into the most earnest of students, so extremely grateful to have this chance to study and learn life-skills.

RadioActive Productions and Family Care Uganda (NGO) have been set up to work towards bringing God’s love to the Ugandan people through radio and charity work. Our syndicated show, ‘Nu Beat’ has been played weekly on 8 different radio stations covering the whole of Uganda even out in the far reaching villages where here, if people have not much else, they have a radio! Aside from this we have a live 3-hour show, called ‘Get Activated’ on the largest vernacular station here.
