Transform Lives: Help SCOPE Foundation Break the Cycle of Poverty and Suffering for Uganda’s Children with Imprisoned Parents.

Many children in Uganda have to grow up without their parents because their parents are in prison. These children struggle daily to access basic needs like education, health care, clothing, and proper feeding. They also have limited opportunities for long-term development. Moreover, they are highly vulnerable to child abuse and discrimination.

But you can make a difference!

By supporting the SCOPE Foundation, you can help provide holistic and tailored support to these children, their incarcerated parents, and their caregivers. Help today, to create a better tomorrow.

Join Us in Helping Children of Incarcerated Parents in Uganda Thrive

Every child deserves a chance to thrive, but for many children in Uganda whose parents are in prison, hope and a bright future seem like a fairy tale.

The criminal justice system in Uganda doesn’t practically cater to their needs, leaving them vulnerable to poverty, violence, abuse and deprivation. Most of them drop out of school, while many struggle to feed themselves, let alone get health care. Access to basic needs is a miracle for them. They often suffer a lot of stress and depression.

These children need help and support to overcome the challenges they face daily and unlock their potential. They need a caring hand to count on. Will you be that hand?

Help today a vulnerable child in Uganda who is facing parental incarceration. Your gift will give a child an education, a safe and supportive environment, and resilience.
