S.A.L.V.E. International is a British and Ugandan based charity which began in 2008, working to get children off the streets in the Jinja district, eastern Uganda.
S.A.L.V.E International offers children on the streets a chance to be resettled with their relatives or in another loving home environment, providing them with access to support, counseling and an all-round education.
A major part of their work is done within the wider community, with the aim of improving opportunities for education and to work to tackle some of the reasons that children come to the streets in the first place. They do this through women’s empowerment programmes, fruit tree planting in local schools and campaigning to challenge discrimination to uphold children’s rights.
