The Project Shelter Wakadogo mission is to create a safe, stimulating environment for the intellectual, creative and physical development of the children of Acholiland.
About PROJECT SHELTER WAKADOGO
We believe that education is the most powerful and effective way to change lives. Wakadogo is a nursery and primary school for over 300 students in a remote village in Gulu, northern Uganda. The name Wakadogo means “for the little ones” in Swahili, the language of East Africa.
We provide our students with a nutritious school meal every day so that they can learn on full stomachs. We also provide a free health care facility to treat common diseases like malaria.
Putting the children at the heart of everything that we do has been our guiding principle from the very beginning. We work closely with the local community to ensure that this child-cantered approach is valued and practiced.
The charity was founded in 2005 and serves children and an entire community rebuilding their lives after 23 years of war. Together, we’re making a big difference to these children’s lives. We can do even more with your help.
