Child Crisis Center Uganda (CCCU) is a recognized 501(C)(3) non profit organization operating out of Greentown PA USA. CCCU works to improve the lives of children that live in the poverty-stricken village of Magooli, in the Namayingo District of Eastern Uganda. Many of these children have lost one or both parents and lack basic needs such as healthcare, food and an education.
Despite having no running water or electricity, CCCU built a school and opened Magooli Academy for Children - Nayamingo (MACN) on February 4th 2019 to exclusively teach the supported children in the community. Along with the construction of the school, CCCU was able to purchase land for crops, outfit the classrooms with furniture, hire staff (teachers, nurse, cook) and construct two 8,000 gallon water tank rain collection systems. This will provide clean water to the children and villagers who once had to walk six miles for contaminated river water.
We urge you to explore the website to find more information about our cause and why this nonprofit means so much to the future of these children. See the projects we are working on now, along with the ones we have already completed. Be sure to read about the ways you are able to help out the children in Magooli and even how to spread the word to your very own community!
Goal = $5k
Dates: Always open!
Donations MUST be made through the Global Giving website (button below). If we reach our goal, we will be entered into the Global Giving database. This provides us with numerous resources as well as many opportunities for donations both corporate and private. This would be a very useful stepping stone should we be accepted, so help us out!! Share with everyone because the smallest amount does help.
Now through February, CCCU is accepting gently used clothes to send to our friends in Magooli!
Uganda has a warm tropical climate with temperatures averaging between the low 50s and the high 90s (degrees). All clothing items will be accepted, but the need is highest for summer weight clothing and light coverings.
Donations will have to be shipped to the PA, US so they can then be shipped in bulk to Uganda. Click below for details.
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to help the children of Magooli, Uganda. Together, we can make a difference by giving children access to the opportunities that they need in order to succeed at school! Any donation amount is welcomed. Help us make a difference.
