There is something quite special about Komamboga. Komamboga is an approved Children’s Home in Kampala and for over 25 years it has been ‘home’ for children who have been rescued from many desperate situations. They are cared for in a family environment, by local ladies, who have become mothers to the children. Each child is supported through education and they are happy, healthy and safe.
Now it’s time for change at Komamboga as the process of settling each child in a family of their own, is taking place. Working with a very experienced charity in Uganda, the Director Tom, and Shivan the KCH social worker, have been endeavouring to find suitable and trusted families for the children.
The process of placement is robust and children will continue to be supervised in their new families to make sure that both children and carers are happy. Children will also continue to be supported through education.
In line with the family ethos at Komamboga, children will continue to meet up for reunions in the holidays and the annual Christmas party.
The Ugandan Government has developed new policies and directives concerning the care of children and the use of Children’s Homes. The Government is now determined to see all children placed into families and has set about ensuring this happens as soon as possible. Although Komamboga has always been seen by the Government as a model home for children, they nonetheless expect the Home to follow the new policy.
