The Sprout Care Foundation is a community based and child focused organization which works with hundreds of vulnerable and underprivileged children from various parts of the Rakai District of Uganda. In addition to our work with children, we provide adult education in various subjects and other community development projects with the aim to improve the lives of the people in our area.
SCF strives to ensure greater support for orphans and vulnerable households so that all those in need may receive the help they need. This is done through mobilization of resources to promote equal access to education, improved security, health and psycho-social well being of orphans and vulnerable children in our district. We also aim to empower the adults of the community with tools to raise their children well and improve the lives of the family and the entire community.
