  • Perception: Stigma labels those with mental illness as dangerous or cursed, leading to isolation.

  • Service Satisfaction: Poor past experiences deter future help-seeking.

  • Socioeconomic Challenges: Economic struggles and the recent pandemic have worsened mental health issues.

  • Raising Awareness  Educating communities to dispel myths and build support.

  • Increasing Accessibility |Enhancing the availability of quality mental health services.

Sowing Seeds of Hope,
The Kids Safe Harbor Program

In a landscape where educational opportunities are a mosaic of disparity, PSM Charity has initiated the Kids Safe Harbor Program, a sanctuary that currently nurtures and empowers 516 children. By intertwining care and opportunity, we aim to rewrite futures and foster environments where every child and woman can thrive.

About the Kids Safe Harbor Program:
A glance at Uganda's 2014 population census unveils a compelling need for proactive support. While 58% of the population aged 6 years and above have achieved primary education, a concerning 12.5% of children aged 6-12 remain out of school, and 8% of children under 18 are orphaned.

Our Impact and Approach:
PSM Charity's Kids Safe Harbor Program is crafted to pivot these narratives towards hope and progress. Currently, our program is a haven to 516 children, each with dreams and potentials waiting to be unearthed.

  • Education and Opportunity: We delve into the heart of communities, ensuring that every child has access to quality education. Our efforts resonate in the classrooms where we bridge gaps, ensuring that no child is left behind.

  • Nurturing Families: Understanding the symbiotic relationship between a child's progress and a mother's well-being, we extend our support to women. By creating opportunities for them to provide necessities such as food, clothing, and household items, we plant seeds for stable and flourishing futures.

  • Holistic Development: Our approach transcends traditional boundaries. The Kids Safe Harbor Program is not just a space but a sanctuary where children find guidance, support, and the necessary tools to navigate through life.

7-min_edited.jpg

In our Kids Safe Harbor Program, we embrace and nurture children from diverse backgrounds, each with unique needs and circumstances. Due to limited resources, we have established three distinct categories within our Kids Safe Harbor Program, each representing a pillar of support and care. 

 

Guardians of Tomorrow | This category encompasses the 20 children who are complete orphans, devoid of any familial support. Within our sanctuary, we become their family, providing round-the-clock care, love, and guidance. These children find solace and stability in our embrace, as we strive to fulfill their every need and nurture their dreams for a brighter future. 

Family Ties | Our program offers a termly residency arrangement for the 100 children who have relatives. During term time, they live with us, benefiting from our comprehensive support system. During holidays, we extend our care to their families, providing them with essential support while ensuring these children remain connected to their roots and familial bonds.

Daily Guardianship | Among our beneficiaries are 396 children who come from home daily. Despite their limited resources, these children trust us to provide them with a nurturing environment where they can thrive. We offer them daily meals, educational materials, access to quality education, and comprehensive healthcare services. Through our unwavering support, we aim to uplift and empower these children, regardless of their daily challenges, while also empowering their single mothers to support them at home.

Through our Kids Safe Harbor Program, we strive to be a beacon of hope for every child, offering them sanctuary, support, and the opportunity to realize their full potential. With each category representing a crucial aspect of our commitment to child welfare, we stand firm in our dedication to nurturing hope and fostering a brighter tomorrow for all.

A Beacon of Hope: Transforming Lives and Restoring Vision

In the heart of the Luwero district, two sisters, Lataru Juliet (14) and Ekoni Phoebe (12), have been bravely navigating life despite being born with visual and hearing impairments. Their resilience is a testament to the human spirit, living each day with hope in the face of adversity.

Raised by a courageous single mother who strives to provide for her daughters after their father abandoned them due to their disabilities, the family's situation is poignant. The challenges of daily survival, compounded by the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown in Uganda, left them teetering on the brink of desperation.

This vulnerable family's plight came to light when a compassionate citizen reached out to PSM Charity through our YouTube channel, seeking support for Juliet, Phoebe, and their devoted mother, who were grappling with starvation.
PSM Charity, driven by a mission to uplift and empower, promptly visited the family. We provided immediate relief in the form of food and essential supplies, ensuring their urgent needs were met and alleviating their immediate distress.
Determined to explore every avenue to enhance the lives of Juliet and Phoebe, PSM Charity facilitated a medical consultation at Mengo Hospital.
The professional assessment underscored the need for specialized treatment abroad, opening up the possibility of corrective surgeries for the sisters.

Empowering New Beginnings:
Youthful Moms, Resilient Futures Program

In the pursuit of a world where every child and woman leads a dignified and fulfilling life, PSM Charity presents the Youthful Moms, Resilient Futures Program. Rooted in compassion and action, this initiative seeks to transform the lives of young mothers who, despite facing overwhelming adversity, harbor dreams of a brighter future for themselves and their children.

In the communities we serve, young girls, some as tender as 12 years old, find themselves grappling with the abrupt end of their education due to early pregnancies. Often ostracized by their families and abandoned by those responsible, these young mothers seek refuge in makeshift shelters, facing the harrowing challenges of hunger, insecurity, and uncertainty about their futures. Without intervention, both mother and child are at risk of being marginalized, perpetuating a cycle of poverty and hardship.


The Youthful Moms, Resilient Futures Program is crafted to be a sanctuary of hope and opportunity. We understand the pivotal role single mothers play in shaping their children's futures and believe that, with support, they can rise above their circumstances.

  • Skill Development and Education: We aim to provide these young mothers with vocational training, equipping them with skills that enable self-reliance. From tailoring to agriculture, these skills can be their ticket to a sustainable livelihood.

  • Health and Wellness: Ensuring the health and wellbeing of both mother and child is paramount. Access to healthcare, nutritional support, and counseling services will form a critical component of this program.

  • Childcare Support: By establishing safe spaces for childcare, we enable these young mothers to pursue education and work opportunities without concern for their children’s safety and wellbeing.

  • Community Sensitization: Educating the community about the plight and potential of these young mothers can foster a more inclusive and supportive environment.

Join the Journey:

Your support can be transformative, turning dreams into realities. By contributing to the Youthful Moms, Resilient Futures Program, you are not just making a donation, but investing in the creation of a resilient, empowered generation of women and children.

Your involvement can rewrite stories, turning tales of despair into narratives of triumph. Together, let's open doors to opportunities and weave a tapestry of hope and progress.

Be a Part of the Change:

We invite you to become a pivotal part of this journey. Your generosity can ignite the spark that changes lives and builds futures. Thank you for considering supporting this cause, and for joining us in our mission to ensure a happy and dignified life for every child and woman.

At PSM Charity, we are deeply committed to transforming the lives of young mothers who face daunting challenges every day. Through our 'Youthful Moms, Resilient Futures Program,' we aim to convert adversity into stories of resilience and enduring hope. Our mission is to uplift young mothers, single mothers, and women across communities, empowering them to create safe and secure futures for their families. The bond between a mother and her child is irreplaceable—mothers naturally fight for their children's futures, often against overwhelming odds. Witnessing their struggles to provide better opportunities for their children has inspired us to take sustainable action. 

By weaving together Local Market Sales and Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA), we equip these courageous women with the tools to earn a sustainable income and access broader markets. This initiative not only ensures they can envision and strive towards a brighter future but also secures a source of nutritious food for their children. Every piece of produce grown by these resilient mothers is purchased by PSM Charity, complemented by contributions from other empowered farmers, and used to nourish young minds and bodies. This holistic approach does more than foster economic independence for young mothers—it also directly enhances the health and well-being of their families, nourishing their lives in every sense. 

Join us as we empower these remarkable women to rewrite their futures and, by extension, those of their children, ensuring no family is left behind in our journey towards a more hopeful and sustainable tomorrow.






 

At the intersection of health, empowerment, and environmental conservation, PSM Charity proudly introduces the CUWEI Program. Aimed at addressing the multifaceted challenges faced by communities in Central Uganda, this initiative takes a holistic approach to improving lives while ensuring sustainable development.

CUWEI Program: Cultivating Health, Empowerment, and Environmental Wellbeing

The CUWEI Program, with an objective to "Improve sanitation levels, water scarcity, and mitigate the effects of climate change," crafts solutions that echo with the needs of the communities we serve. From addressing intimate health needs of women and girls to fostering environmentally conscious practices, the program is a tapestry of initiatives woven with care and insight.

Health and Hygiene:
Understanding the nuances of menstrual hygiene management, the CUWEI Program ensures that no girl or woman has to compromise on her dignity or health. By periodically distributing menstrual hygiene kits and empowering women with skills to craft reusable pads, the program ensures sustainability and autonomy. Moreover, communities are sensitized about the importance of sanitation and hygiene, creating an environment that supports and nurtures.

Climate Change Mitigation:
CUWEI goes beyond immediate needs, envisioning a future that is sustainable and harmonious. By promoting the planting of trees and advocating for cleaner fuel sources such as efficient cooking stoves, the program actively works towards reducing carbon emissions.

Education and Empowerment:
Knowledge is at the heart of CUWEI. Through training sessions on environmental protection, management, and other capacity-related topics, communities, particularly school children and women, are empowered to take charge. This participatory approach ensures that the solutions are not just imposed but rather embraced and sustained by the community itself.

Visionaries of Hope and Change

In the heart of Uganda, a seed of compassion and advocacy was planted by a group of visionary individuals. These founders, united by a common belief in the potential of every woman and child, laid the cornerstone for what is today known as PSM Charity.

Our founders envisioned a world where no child or woman would go through life unattended, a world where happiness and dignity were not privileges but a universal right. Each founder brought a unique perspective, skill, and unwavering commitment to this cause.

From diverse backgrounds, they converged on a shared mission: to empower the most vulnerable sections of society and pave a path toward sustainable development and inclusive growth. Their collective dream was to create conditions conducive to providing essential needs - food, clothing, and shelter, thus ensuring a promising start to many lives.

Our founders understood the challenges ahead but were resolute in their determination. Through their tireless efforts, PSM Charity was born, encapsulating their vision of transforming lives through targeted intervention, advocacy, and compassionate outreach.

These visionaries did not just establish an organization; they initiated a movement of hope and lasting change. Today, as we look back, we pay homage to our founders, whose enduring vision continues to guide and inspire every endeavor of PSM Charity.
