Nature of Work
Established in 1995, GCC directly supports orphans, vulnerable children and widows in Africa. Most of the orphans and vulnerable children lost their parents to HIV/AIDS, poverty, civil and political conflicts.
GCC now supports 143 orphans and 56 widows in Uganda. GCC does not support running an orphanage hence the orphans in Uganda stay with the widows who are parental guardians to them.
GCC is among the first African founded organization in the United Kingdom supporting orphans, vulnerable children and widows in Africa. It is one of the few African founded charitable organizations in England and Wales channeling financial resources to finance the education of orphans and vulnerable children and support grassroots community based organizations.
GCC expands the scope of care for AIDS orphans in Africa. It supports projects that strengthen the capacity of families and communities and work hand in hand with Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and Faith Based Organizations (FBOs) to provide care for AIDS affected and vulnerable children. It partners with African community based partners serving at the front-line of the AIDS epidemic to provide safe, compassionate and productive alternatives through community based programmes.
