Who We Are
AMEA Foundation is a Community-Based Organization (CBO) fully registered and licensed under The Non-Governmental Organizations Registration Act, CAP.113, with registration number 12892. We are also registered with the Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB), holding registration number 80020000125794.
AMEA Foundation operates in the Wakiso District, Kakiri, Uganda, with a primary focus on supporting underprivileged children, single mothers, and individuals affected by HIV/AIDS. Our organization is committed to addressing the multiple dimensions of poverty and social inequality by providing comprehensive care and support to over 150 children, including orphans, street kids, neglected children, and those living with HIV/AIDS.
Through our programs, we aim to provide these children with shelter, nutritious food, quality education, healthcare, and scholastic materials. We firmly believe that education is a powerful tool in breaking the cycle of poverty and empowering children to build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
Climate Change Initiative:
AMEA Foundation recognizes that climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time, with severe implications for vulnerable communities. In response, we have initiated a comprehensive Climate Change Initiative that complements our work in supporting underprivileged children, single mothers, and individuals affected by HIV/AIDS.
Through our Climate Change Initiative, we aim to raise awareness about the impacts of climate change and promote sustainable practices within the communities we serve. We believe that addressing climate change is not only essential for the long-term well-being of our beneficiaries but also for the overall sustainability and resilience of the region.
Key Features of our Climate Change Initiative:
Advocacy and Education: We actively engage with local communities, schools, and stakeholders to raise awareness about climate change, its causes, and potential solutions. We conduct workshops, seminars, and awareness campaigns to foster a deeper understanding of climate-related issues and encourage behavioral changes towards environmental sustainability.
Sustainable Practices: We promote and implement sustainable practices within our organization and the communities we work with. This includes promoting energy efficiency, waste management, and responsible consumption. We encourage the use of renewable energy sources, such as solar power, and promote sustainable agriculture techniques that mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
Climate Resilience and Adaptation: Recognizing the vulnerability of communities to climate-related disasters, we actively work towards building resilience and enhancing adaptive capacities. This involves supporting communities in developing and implementing climate resilience strategies, such as early warning systems, disaster preparedness plans, and sustainable land management practices.
Relief and Rehabilitation: In response to climate-related disasters, such as floods and landslides, we provide immediate relief and rehabilitation support to affected communities. This includes distributing emergency supplies, providing temporary shelter, and assisting with the restoration of homes and livelihoods.
Partnerships and Collaboration: We collaborate with local and international organizations, governmental bodies, and experts in the field of climate change to leverage resources, knowledge, and expertise. Through partnerships, we aim to maximize our impact, share best practices, and contribute to larger climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts.
Our success is indebted to the unwavering support of our well-wishers, donors, and volunteers, who generously contribute their time, resources, and expertise to help us achieve our mission. Together, we are making a profound difference in the lives of the underprivileged, empowering them to overcome adversity and create a brighter future.
