CHILD is an acronym of Community Health Initiative & Livelihood Development a grassroots not-for-profit Organization founded and established in 2011.

“To explore, discover and harness opportunities to transform life chances of the undeserved and hard-to-reach.” 
Organization Overview
CHILD is an indigenous organization legally mandated to execute projects aimed at uplifting the welfare of people that are faced with challenges of accessing the basics of life and also delineated from the enjoyment of the universally guaranteed human rights in Uganda
CHILD exists to find solutions to the socioeconomic difficulties that women and girls find themselves in. Since 2011, CHILD has spearheaded grassroots initiatives aimed at uplifting the status of women and girls that are often excluded from the reach of basic social services. CHILD has put greater emphasis on health and education

CHILD engages girls in making paper bead jewelery from waste paper, fiber table mats, African bags, photo frames and all other forms of art as the client may wish. The project aims at supporting girls access to education by affording the poor girls school fees and scholastic materials such as books, pens, shoes, school bags and sanitary towels. Poverty has had negative consequences on the girls' access to education and this coupled with the patriarchal society norms, has perpetuated the inhibition of girls enjoying equal rights to education just like their male counterparts.CHILD aims at enhancing the enrollment and retention of girls in schools.
