Our mission and Vision statements explains the purpose of our organisation. It explains why Saint Ann Foundation exists, and at the most basic level, what we do. It provides the basis for all our activities including the development of our strategies, and programs
With Unique Mission and Vision, Saint Ann Foundation works directly with the neediest communities in groups. Our programs respond to local project requests by actively engaging the local communities groups in the design and implementation of the projects. This ensures that outcomes will best address the real community needs.
Poverty affects people of all ages, but children are single most affected group. Children living in poverty experience deprivation, exclusion and Vulnerability, and also face multidimensional circumstances that create lifelong difficulties in gaining access to their basic rights. Poverty also denies children their rights and deprives them of their physical, psychological and intellectual development.
Effects of deprivation in childhood can be irreversible and the impacts of child poverty can last a lifetime, with poor children likely to become poor during their adulthood and have poor children themselves, reinforcing the intergenerational cycle of poverty. In addition, Poverty is one of the root causes of violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect of children such as child labour, trafficking, sexual exploitation and child marriage.
Our children’s cognitive development represents Uganda`
s greatest natural resource. Moreover, Uganda's Vision to become to become a middle-income country by 2040 remains highly contingent upon our collective ability to safeguard children`s right to contribute to national development.
