Victory Child Care Project – Ty Cariad

Victory Child Care Project – Ty Cariad Children‘ Home (VCCP) is the main project that Tŷ Cariad Africa supports, and is the reason that Tŷ Cariad Africa was established.

The Victory Child Care Project – Ty Cariad children’s home is in Namugongo, and was established in 2003 following a visit by Paul Thomas (Chaplain to South Wales Fire and Rescue Service).  VCCP – Ty Cariad’s children’s home is run by Victory Christian Centre, Uganda.

The home works in accordance with the rules and regulations as set out by Ugandan law, including the National Framework for Alternative Care and the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) which requires that institutional care is considered as a last resort for children in need of care.  Its team of social workers investigate the background of each child within its care, which includes tracing, re-linking and resettlement.  If it is not possible for a child to be resettled with their family, other options are explored including placement with wider family members, fostering or adoption within Uganda.  Decisions are made based on what is in the best interest of each and every child.

The home is also a transitional centre providing temporary care as an emergency response for children who need care and protection.  This can be for a lost child, an abused child, or children rescued from child traffickers or child abuse.  This care should not exceed six months from the time of admission.  Since the beginning of 2015, the project has provided temporary care for over 50 children. 

As a charity, we partner with VCCP and other organisations that promote tracing, re-linking and resettlement of children in their families and extended communities wherever possible. Further information regarding resettlement and temporary care including an in depth question and answer interview with key personnel working in Uganda can be found by clicking on this sentence.

As a charity, Tŷ Cariad Africa also supports other organisations who support orphans and vulnerable children in Sub-Saharan Africa. Each year we give at least 10% of our unrestricted funds to support these organisations.  Details of these other projects can be found by clicking here
