SCOSP Grandmothers making beautiful baskets and beads

Amid no universal social security system for older persons, over one million seniors in Uganda live in abject poverty, loneliness and isolation. More than 2.2 million HIV/AIDS orphans in Uganda are under the care of poor and helpless elderly grandparents while others are homeless.

SCOSP is working to free orphans from the cycle of poverty

Hundreds of thousands of families in South-Western Uganda that have lost breadwinners to HIV/AIDS are stuck in systemic poverty cycles where children lack access to healthcare, education, food and shelter.

SCOSP members see a need to carry out visits directly to local villages, particularly when serving those groups impacted by HIV/AIDs and those taking care of orphans and vulnerable children. Transportation from rural villages to the city of Kabale is expensive and by conducting village outreaches SCOSP is able to ensure that group members that are unable to travel to Kabale are afforded the opportunity to receive care and support trainings and other mobile services. This direct relationship also gives SCOSP the opportunity to better listen to and meet the needs of these communities.

The most single important challenge facing girls in our communities' and Uganda at large is breaking the grip of poverty. The social situations characterized by the growing numbers of HIV/AIDS, orphans, unemployment, child labor and violence. Female youth and women of all ages still have very limited say over their lives and in particular their sexuality.
