Neema Child Project was founded in January 2016 and exists as a Christian faith-based volunteer program within DevXchange, a registered Canadian charity. Uganda is a country where over half the population is under the age of sixteen. This means that the next few years are a critical time in Uganda’s history. Neema wants to do its part to ensure that thousands of children not only have the basic necessities needed for survival but also the chance to flourish and grow through education. Through education, we believe that a child’s life can be positively impacted and that hope can be created. We believe that well educated children with hope and inspiration can and will develop into community leaders who will further perpetuate positive change and develop ways to lead their people and their country out of poverty.
Our recently established relationship with DevXchange is a major step forward for Neema Child Project. As a program within DevXchange, Neema Child Project can fundraise through donations and have tax receipts issued to our supporters for their contributions. We have multiple initiatives that run throughout the year. Initiatives include Cultural Exchange/Travel, Naioth Children’s Home (Orphanage), Masunkwe Sustainability Project and Neema Christmas Festival. Our implementing partner Kingdom Child Project executes the initiatives and Neema Child Project works on raising funds and awareness.
Since DevXchange, Neema Child Project and Kingdom Child Project are operated in large part by volunteers, the cost of administration is kept to a minimum, ensuring that a high percentage of donations are allocated toward programs that benefit the children.
