C.C.U., a non-profit organization, was founded October 2018 in Gulu, Uganda with the aim to support children without hope, e.g. orphans, homeless and children with disabilities to fight for a better future.
Uganda is a country in East Africa, which has suffered from war for over 25 years. Because of this many families were disunited and traumatized.
The founder Charlie (Odongo Fredrico) from Gulu, Uganda, volunteered for 8 years by himself to support the children, who are living on the street – just himself and on his own costs. 2018 he got to know Mimi (Miriam Öttinger) who was volunteering for the 4th time in an orphanage in Gulu.
The educator and special need teacher is, since then, supporting his project and together they founded the organization „Children Care Uganda“.
Together with friends, all on volunteer base, they are putting all effort to build up an organization which is a blessing to the community of Gulu and to improve the situation for children and their families in need.
We are registered as a Community Based Organization (C.B.O.)
and member of the NGO Forum, Gulu, Uganda.
We are in the progress to open an association "Children Care Uganda Deutschland e.V." in Germany,
which shall support the aims of CCU and make us possible to register as an international NGO.
