Monitoring and Evaluation

Monitoring and Evaluation is a critical component and a vital tool that enables the organisation to measure and evaluate outcomes and achievements of any development project/programme being implemented and long term impact made. This is a new department in MPKKO and its overall objective is to contribute to the successful collection and provision of information.

Vocational Skills Training

As a consequence of HIV/AIDs, a significant number of children have lost one or both of their parents. Such orphans are cared for by surviving widows or grandparents. The majority live in poor households, and is unable to afford schooling or expensive medical services. Without support these children cannot be unable to escape from this damaging poverty cycle.

Adoption program (school sponsorship)

Education is a fundamental right for children and that through basic education a community can begin to develop and its people can be empowered to improve their quality of life. The generosity of individuals abroad has enabled around 1000 orphans and vulnerable children to receive education. This is a significant contribution to a child's life and along with receiving an education the knowledge that someone out there cares and is praying for them, it gives a child an incredible amount of self-worth.

Tuberculosis (TB) activities

As TB infection is closely related to HIV infection, we also focus on coordinating TB and HIV services, although our Laboratory is still small we hope to upgrade and improve laboratory services, ensuring all needed laboratory equipment and supplies are in place and provided for, and training health care providers or Community Peer Educators on TB, multi–drug-resistant TB, and HIV and TB interactions.

MPKLA delivers timely and comprehensive services and programs to the most vulnerable persons in the slum communities of Kampala and Wakiso districts.
