Since 2017, Ocia Organisation has been at the forefront of helping disadvantaged children in slum and vulnerable children in Uganda . Here are some of the key dates in our history, all the way until now!
In the beginning
ORPHAN CHILDREN IN ACTION (OCIA) was ESTABLISHED as Community Based Organisation (CBO) in 2017 which supports disadvantaged children from slums and similar conditions in Uganda regardless of their religion, caste or gender. The administrative costs are kept to minimum to ensure the work of OCIA to fund projects on the ground in Uganda. ORPHAN CHILDREN IN ACTION (OCIA) was created in response to the urgent need to care for children abandoned or left orphans by the AIDs epidemic in Uganda. It is a private Christian based charity organization for the purpose of nurturing and giving support to the orphans and the vulnerable.
ORPHAN CHILDREN IN ACTION (OCIA) was ESTABLISHED as a Non-governmental Organisation (NGO) in 2020.
We believe by attending to all the needs of a child, he/she will grow in love and become prepared, to eventually one day leave the orphanage and become productive in the community.
And ensuring adequate care and support that we provided to both orphans and vulnerable children, abandoned by parents and families; and assisting such children to be educated and trained so as to be successful and useful members who can contribute productively to their societal development.
Over these years, we are currently working in Uganda.
In community areas like Kawempe,Nansana,Gganda,Bakuli and Mengo.These areas are all located in central region of Uganda and some are boarded by Kampala the capital city for example Bakuli and Mengo.
