We change the future for vulnerable children

Upright Kids Foundation has been operating in Bukavu since 2017, the number of children who are losing parental care remains distressingly high. Our organization has been intensifying its efforts to help and strengthen children a chance to stay with and grow up in their family.

We work hard to find and support solutions for vulnerable children or those without adequate care who can’t find a home. The need to find solutions for vulnerable children remains immense. We would like to light a small candle, a glimmer of hope. Reduce poverty and inequality in rural settlements.

Education of children

Through our social center, we seek to strengthen vulnerable children in Bukavu to become self-sufficient; through small loans, by offering training that will enhance vital skills, or by providing food. By providing kindergarten and schooling for the children, we enable poor parents to attend their work knowing that their children are well cared for.
