Awakening Smiles Initiative

Awakening Smiles Initiative is a Non- Government Organization to play an active role in the reduction of extreme child suffering , hunger through development of socio-economic lives and to promote health with emphasis to primary health care, maternal health and infant mortality, protection and promotion of the dignity and community welfare. and developmental assistance to children and mothers in Uganda.

Realizing that the responsibility to protect the status of the human life and dignity lies on our shoulders, there arose a need of taking care of vulnerable children and women..

The HIV/AIDS pandemic,the prolonged civil wars in some parts of our country, abject poverty in the rural communities, domestic violence, continued child abuse, sexual harassment to the girl child, gender discrimination, forced marriages, unwanted teenage pregnancies, drug abuse, child trafficking and many other problems have led to an increased number of neglected children in our communities and many desperate women and children.

The wide spread epidemic of HIV/AIDS has also left disadvantaged orphans who desperately need help, some of them have HIV/AIDS as well as lacking the basic needs of life, like food, clothing, education, healthcare, beddings etc.  One in six children in Uganda is an orphan.  As in much of Africa, the main cause is HIV/AIDS.  HIV remains prevalent and poverty can, itself, increase the spread of HIV as individuals adopt risky survival strategies, such as exchanging sex for food or money or involvement in crime, drug abuse, or child labour, and child trafficking
