Child Care and Youth Empowerment Foundation (CCAYEF) is a registered Non- government, non-political, non-religious and not for profit Organization that was founded in January 2008 as a Community Based Organization (CBO). As a charitable Organization, CCAYEF was inspired by the large incidences of child marriages and early pregnancies leading to early parenthood; and large numbers of children who were not well catered for by any adult figure. Further more, CCAYEF’s motivation is premised on the over-growing survival needs of youth, children and their families brought about by chronic low production levels among the youth who not only lack production assets like life skills, but are also psychologically and physically immature to respond to economic challenges of the time. These are also the same groups that are prone to child abuse and neglect; child labour, sexual abuse, dropping out from school, sexual violence and many other forms of violation. On the other hand, majority of them are out of school, they are engaged in small subsistence activities or dependent on equally non-responsive adults for survival.

Our mandate covers the four districts of Mukono, Kayunga, Buvuma, and Buikwe and delivery of our service packages is guided by our mission, vision, values and strategic objectives.

Vision: CCAYEF envisions a world of well nurtured children, empowered youths, and communities committed to social justice and peace.

Mission: Improving the well-being of vulnerable children and youth through education, socio-economic interventions, nutrition and health care.

Values: Social Justice, Empowerment, Love, Integrity and Professionalism.
