From work directly with communities in Uganda to advocacy at the international level, Joy for Children acts as a Bridge providing project implementation & services for international organizations who require local knowledge & expertise from a trusted Partner who also understands & works in the global development arena.

Our Ugandan staff know well local customs, traditions, and cultures and how to successfully navigate them ~ and they are at ease in front of the media & at international conferences.  We maintain excellent relationships with a cross-section of Ugandan civil society & government. Years of engaging & building communities has taught us the power of inclusivity & the strength of diversity to build effective coalitions.

We also have a rich history of creating our own Projects that rely on innovative approaches to solving long-standing, entrenched social & economic problems.  We believe that problems are best solved with compassionate listening to those directly living the issues, and in building action-oriented partnerships based on trust and mutual cooperation to achieve new goals.

As an organization we have served as leaders on a number of societal issues that impact the children, and relish a challenge to change out-dated paradigms & usher in new ways that benefit & elevate all.

We are proud of our strong work ethic, our compassionate dedication to children & communities, and our “can-do” spirit.  We deliver high quality work in an efficient and well-organized manner that is effective ~ and results oriented.  Our guiding principles are honesty, transparency, and service.

We welcome your Partnership ~ whether it is to fulfill your Project needs or to Support us in our own uniquely designed Programs – together as One we can Create Change for the Better.
