Huys Link Community Initiative

In Harmony, we reach out to the World!

Huys Link Community Initiative  (HUYSLINCI), with support from Canadian Feed the Children (CFTC) and guidance from the Government of Uganda, has since 2010 worked towards improving the quality of education in Wakiso District and beyond. Of the things we do in specific schools; we sensitize parents and communities on the importance of education, jointly with parents offer scholastic materials to poor-to-do children to ensure retention and completion;  meet school development requirements in the form of refurbishing and constructing classroom blocks, installation of water harvesting and purification systems, building toilet and kitchen facilities, stock school libraries, enhance school reading and writers clubs, support MDD with kits, support games and sports activities, reinstated handwork sessions, support the school feeding and gardening programmes, build teacher capacities in different competencies e.g. diversity management and OVC handling, build the capacity of school management committees (SMCs),  do household level livelihoods empowerment and offer seed support,  promote self-help groups like VSLAs, promote menstrual health and sexual reproductive health and rights, do campaigns on land rights and land management, among other things.

The project is benefiting over 4,800 children in six (7) partner schools i.e. Entebbe UMEA, Nkumba Quran, St. Luke Nkumba, St. Kizito Mpala, St. Paul Bulega, St. Joseph Katabi and Bugiri Public Primary schools; and Entebbe Airforce, Kitala, and Entebbe Kins secondary schools.

Generally, the project is intended to:

  1. Improve Food Security and Nutrition
  2. Increase Income, Savings and Assets in the target communities\
  3. Improve Educational Performance and Outcomes
  4. Improve Health, with a focus on Sexual and Reproductive health
  5. Enhance HUYSLINCI's capacity to deliver Program Outcomes and Impact

Thanks to Canadian Feed the Children for making all this possible.

HUYSLINCI collaborates with Mildmay Uganda to close the gap in coverage of HIV treatment services between adults and pediatrics infected with HIV and  accelerate the journey to the elimination of pediatric HIV as well as achieving universal pediatric treatment.

The project is implemented in Nsangi Sub County and, Kira and Makindye Ssabagabo Municipalities of Wakiso District. HUYSLINCI’s role is to identify, link, follow-up and ensure retention of children and adolescents living with HIV on care and treatment in the said areas. We work with area health centres to which we refer children and adolescents for HIV counseling, testing, care and treatment as cases may be found.

Bravo to Mildmay Uganda for the trust in us and commitment to make life enjoyable to Ugandans.
