Strengthening Families with Young Children

Strengthening families with young children through training of parent volunteers to provide support to child caregivers in their own homes. Home-Start Uganda wants to see all children have safe and healthy start in life.



All have parenting experience and understand the stress and strains involved in bringing up young family. They understand, caring, and reliable and make a commitment to visiting one or two families in their own homes on a regular basis during which they share their parenting experiences, talk, listen, encourage and enable their parent in their most important job of raising children.

Welcome to Home-Start Uganda


Home-Start has been working in this way for over 30 years, worldwide. It is a family support organisation with active and wholly independent sister organisations using similar but by no means identical methodology in more than 16 countries.

Home-Start Uganda is a voluntary organization in which volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to families with young children, in their own homes, helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown. Home-Start is available for any family with at least one child under 8 years of age.
