For the Children

Rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration of street children with their families are CRO's prime activities and so adopted as a long-term strategy and "good practice" with a lasting impact.

cro 2016 supportThe children attend the rehabilitation program, primary and secondary schools, informal and formal vocational training, University and tertiary institutions.

Some of the young people have completed vocational training and college education and are now gainfully employed.

cro approach

 CRO works in line with government policy and hence does not institutionalize children but assists them to get rehabilitated, educated and reintegrated within their extended family lines as a long-term strategy.

This has proved to be a “good practice” for the street children because the children have to take their own decisions to quit the streets. This usually has a lasting impact on the street children.

CRO’s 23 years experience of working with street children is enriched by experienced staff and modest structures to enable street children access rehabilitation and education and finally transform their lives into productive persons in society.

why street childrenChildren run away or are forced to leave homes mainly due to;

• Poor parenting habits,

• Domestic violence,
• The HIV/AIDS scourge resulting into death of parents and guardians of children,
• Civil strife in the North and North-eastern Uganda leading to displaced families,
• Famine, draught and cattle rustling activities in the Karamoja area,
• Poverty,
• Floods and landslides,
• Peer pressure from other children,
•  and Child Neglect

Our goal is to contribute to the rehabilitation, education and reintegration of street children into families and the enhanced capacities of the People’s Institutions for improved livelihood and civic responsibility.”
