Katuba CarePoint

Katuba CarePoint is located in Mukono District, roughly 22 km from Uganda’s capital city, Kampala. It is a semi-urban area, where subsistence farming is the dominant source of food and income in the area.

However, many families do not have enough food to last between harvests due to limited access to land, which has resulted in the majority of children in the area experiencing malnutrition. HIV/AIDS continues to be a significant challenge in the area. This has resulted in a large number of children being cared for by their grandparents, who struggle to provide for them. Katuba CarePoint works alongside Reach One Touch One (ROTOM) Ministries to provide support for the community. The focus of ROTOM is to support the elderly in the community while HopeChest cares for the orphaned and vulnerable children. Partnership with HopeChest lessens the financial burden on the elderly.

With the partnership of Haven Reformed Church, the children at Katuba CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Haven Reformed Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Katuba

Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.

Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.

A fundraiser for Katuba CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.

When our staff visit CarePoints, the most common question they get from children is how their sponsors are doing. They LOVE hearing from you!
