Our Purpose

Child Crisis Center Uganda, (CCCU) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operating out of both Uganda and the United States. The organization was founded in 2017 in the state of Pennsylvania, US.  Our efforts have led us to concentrate on  Magooli, Uganda which is located along the Equator in the Namayingo District in Eastern Uganda. 


The goal of Child Crisis Center Uganda is to execute relief for the poor, the distressed and the underprivileged by providing opportunities to support education and hope for children in Uganda. Our mission is to improve the lives of orphaned children, and help desperate women who have lost husbands due to war, malaria or AIDS.


Children in Uganda face day to day struggles that Child Crisis Center Uganda strives to alleviate.

UM News published an article about CCCU and Vice President/Director Zalambi Joseph.  The journalist interviews a father of four whose children attend CCCU's School Magooli Academy for Children Namayingo (MACN).  Here is an excerpt from the article: 

"Nine years ago, 34-year-old James Barasa, a father of four, was diagnosed with Kaposi’s sarcoma. Since then, he’s been in and out of the hospital, leaving his family financially unstable. [...]

 Barasa, a resident of Namake village in the Namayingo District of eastern Uganda, said the family has been struggling to keep the children in school. However, recently, Magooli Academy for Children, based in the district, enrolled his 5-year-old daughter into preschool. [...]

 'I’m relieved and happy that my daughter is among the lucky children to be selected to study at the academy,” Barasa said. “It has highly qualified and competent teachers, provides fees, scholastic materials, meals for the less-privileged children. My daughter will get a strong education foundation.' "
