Why i do what i do

Aidah,  the Communications Officer of  Ugandans Adopt, shares her passion for her job and tells us why she does what she does:

“I have spent close to six months working with Ugandans Adopt and Malaika Babies’ Home each day brings something new. This morning one of our little ones, Hero left for his pre-settlement visit. We were all excited as we got him ready for his journey but he just wanted to wriggle away so he could crawl. Hero’s just learnt to crawl and uses every opportunity he gets to practice his new skill as much as he can! When we finally did strap him in, he gave us a resigned but cheeky look. These are some of the special moments that I never tire of.

Our little Hero safely strapped in

There are times when I have accompanied the Social Work Team to collect a child who has been abandoned when I could almost breakdown but, fortunately, this is always short lived. In our care, the babies are so quick to blossom and, above all, love again. Each child’s story is unique and I have gained a little something from every child I have gotten to know at Malaika.

Holding on

Little Saul holds on

What makes my job worth it is not just seeing a child go home but knowing, after our social workers conduct follow up visits, how truly happy they are in a loving family. It always brings a smile to my face. It is why I do what I do.

Happy Families

At Ugandans Adopt we strongly believe that every child belongs in a family. We would not be doing what we do without our supporters. Thank you so much from all the team at Ugandans Adopt for helping us make families not orphans.”
