Children and students at the Precious Children’s Centre in Kawempe Division, Kampala are very comfortable in class, as they no longer have to worry about getting enough to eat. Thanks to RMF’s support, the school provides students with a nutritious breakfast and lunch. Teachers are also paid on time, so they remain encouraged and motivated in their work.
Founded by Kawempe Division native and OPM officer Robert Baryamwesiga in 2011, the Precious Children’s Centre provides food, shelter, rehabilitation, and primary education to orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) and former street children. Real Medicine Foundation began supporting the Precious Children’s Centre in 2015, providing funds for nutritious food, which has improved the children’s health and concentration and stabilized operations at the Precious Children’s Centre.
