About us

Joy for Children-Uganda (JFCU) is a non-profit children’s rights centre and non-governmental (NGO) organization established in Kampala in 2005 to respond to the plight of vulnerable children in Uganda. Dedicated to working with children, families and communities to end injustice to children, JFCU attained NGO status in 2006 (registration number S. 5914/6687 under the NGO Act of 1989 of the Republic of Uganda).

Through human-rights-based initiatives designed to meet the needs of children, JFCU addresses issues that have plagued war-ravaged Uganda, such as:

• Violence against children, including neglect, abuse, exploitation and child labour
• Child marriage
• Poor education and illiteracy
• Familial conflict
• Poverty
• Poor health due to HIV/AIDS, malaria and malnutrition
• Sub-standard sanitation, water and food security
