Develop a Child Africa Ministries (DACAM) is a Christian NGO (non-profit organisation) based in Kampala,Uganda which started in 2011. 9 years later, in 2019, we are working with 200 families, including 500 children in three locations: Katoogo a slum in the outskirts Kampala in Gaba, Kyagwe Mukono across lake Victoria from Gaba and Lugazi Kasokoso, an undeveloped community just 80kms east of Kampala.
Our long term goal is to develop a self-sustainable Christ-centered community in Lugazi and Kyagwe for the people currently living in Katogo slum.
The slum lands are government owned and the people are living on them illegally. With our Fifteen staff members and three volunteers, we are able to provide: school fees, urgent medical needs, food, clothing, skills, business training, and Christian counseling. As we empower each family, we expect to see change within the community. We believe that these families will have the ability to support themselves, send their children to school, and eventually relocate from the slums to better homes and able to take care of their families.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
Create self-sustaining Christ-centered communities by developing vulnerable children and families.
