Our Projects section does emphasize on both our current projects (sustainability projects) and future prospects under the section Projects which contains proposals of the projects we wish to attain/achieve.
Jeje Hearts charity fundation has acquired 4 acres of land on the outskirts of the town of Semuto kapeeka, in Luwero, Uganda. The land is lush and fertile, which will provide us with excellent conditions to make our home as self-sustainable as possible.
We plan to build a children’s home on our land. The home will shelter up to 400 children (boys and girls) and a house nanny to take care of them. The home will comprise of male and female bed and bathrooms, a bedroom for the house nanny,3 big living areas,big dining room space, kitchen, store and laundry.
After the home has been established, we hope to build storey community centre with training classrooms, a big library for everyone, computer room, TV/DVD room and a medical clinic/store downstairs and an office and volunteer wing upstairs. Eventually we would like to run educational classes not only for our children and staff, but for the surrounding community as well.
There will also be a large playing field, a small poultry farm with animals and a communal farm with crops such as maize, cabbage, spinach, potatoes, carrots, bananas, and avocado and mango trees. As time progress, we would like to manage and sell our crops and eggs to provide us with more funding, We would also need help of installation of solar energy resulting from resulting from the problem that our home is located in deep rural areas where there is no electricity supply. Places which have electricity connections are also antagonized by regular load-shedding.
Covid 19 Project
Covid was a general setback to almost every one and since Uganda is a third word developing country, this was a major backslide both financially and socially.So in this project we try to offer the society most especially the mothers and children with items they can no longer afford because of the setback in their businesses.
Items like Food, Sanitary pads, clothes, face masks and health services where possible. So we call upon you to donate towards this very important cause for the betterment of their lives.
We improve access to quality learning, by training teachers, building infrastructure, providing equipment and promoting inclusive education. We also run early learning programmes for children under six and help older children who dropped out of school to return to education.
We support rural clinics to improve maternal and newborn health, by providing equipment, medicine and training. We run feeding programmes for malnourished children and mothers, promote breastfeeding, and provide sexual and reproductive health information to adolescents.
The Health project intends also to provide treatment to women, adolescents (boys and girls) at the age of (15-49), children of immunisable age years to cover areas of maternal health, child health, communicable and non-communicable diseases.
The problem of women and children is vital to creating a healthy world. Despite great progress, there are still too many mothers and children dying- mostly from causes that could have been prevented. . According to (CDC) center for disease control and prevention global health, every day, approximately 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries. In 2012, 6.6million children died before age, 5-5million of them in the year of life. Therefore were seeking for resources to help improve health standards through provision of health clinics, carrying out family life education and counseling.
Below is pictorial View of our proposed health center
Child Protection & Child Rights Governance
We support children to know and demand their rights, and to raise their voices to people in power. We help strengthen local and national child protection systems, make schools and other facilities safer, and provide safe spaces for the most vulnerable children.
Youth Livelihoods & Child Poverty
We help families escape the cycle of poverty, through a range of vocational training and equipping youth with the skills they need to earn a sustainable income. We support community savings and loans groups to invest for the future and set up small businesses.
Many nationals and refugees in the country are living under poor housing structures as a result of low incomes especially in the rural areas of the districts. Some of these districts are prone to strong rains that result to mud slides and landslides leading to loss of lives and property. Our organization has a number of programs that aim at improving the housing structures for the less privileged families.
