Covenant Youth Home is a non-profit charitable organization registered in Uganda under the name of Rescue Mission for Street Life. We are committed to help street children move from a life of despair to one of hope and meaningfulness so that they can grow to become important citizens in society and effectively contribute to the development of their community and nation. We aim to do this through the rescue of street children from the streets, facilitation of reunification with their family (when possible), provision of safe housing, nutrition, psychological counseling, medical and legal support, and promotion of education and/or vocational training, and their natural talents. Our programs serve children living on the streets in general, but also specifically those who are victims of human trafficking and/or who are living with HIV.

Trade and Talent Cultivation Program

For boys who are too old to return to school, we help them to acquire trade skills or to cultivate their natural talents that will enable them to provide for their livelihoods. Tradesmen and talent “coaches” are identified in the community who are willing to work with and train the boys.
