OUR CORE VALUES
- Service beyond self
Archangel Children’s Home leads the rest in ensuring that the disadvantaged children of today can be supported to become independent citizens that can contribute to the social, political and economic development of Uganda. Archangel Children’s Home provides basic needs, offer basic education and build vocational skills for orphaned children, which would relive their physical suffering and psychological stress, uplift their livelihood and also impart skills that can be used to earn a living and live independently in the future.
Archangel Children’s Home operates on a de-institutionalization model which makes it unique and different from the traditional orphanages. In this model, the orphaned children with an existing social structure are supported to lead a normal life within the existing social set-up, while those without any social support are nurtured in the homes away from home at identified homes within the community. With this set-up, the orphaned child is able to lead a life similar to that of other children in the community. The children can also attend normal school through the Archangel Education Partnerships with private or public schools or gain skills from Vocational Apprenticeships that will give them an independent future.
Archangel Children’s Home is run on a robust administrative and financial structure with clear institutional pillars and core values that are strictly adhered too so as to realize its vision of restoring hope and ensuring a meaningful independent future for orphaned children in Uganda. The vision is realized through a clear mission of providing basic needs, offering basic education and building vocational skills for an independent future.The Home operates on a clear admission policy that ensures that the care reaches those that really need and deserve it. This is done through ensuring that all referrals to the Home are done through the local authorities and each child is accompanied with the necessary documentation. All efforts are made to verify and authenticate the orphan status and the social support structure for all children picked from the streets with the help of the local authorities where the child claims to come from. This also serves to re-unit the children with their extended families and be supported in a non-institutional setting.
