Annual Report

April 2016 - March 2017

Keeping Children Safe

Who we are

CRANE is a network of organisations, schools and churches working with children at risk in the

Greater Kampala region. The network currently works with over 140 members that have at least

3,000 workers who together care for more than 70,000 children at risk.

CRANE brings together child care workers, duty bearers and other stakeholders together for

collaborative action for transformational change in the lives of children at risk.

CRANE has celebrated its 12 th birthday and is working towards its silver jubilee strategy to see

children safe, well and fulfilling their God-given potential. We pursue 3 main outcomes:

Our Vision

- Children are in Families

- Children are in Safe Spaces

- Children are in Education

Children are safe, well and fulfilling their God-given potential

Our Mission

Lasting change for children is realized through networking collaborative action amongst Christians

and other stakeholders driven by the values of the Christian faith.

The Model that guides us

To help create a shared vision amongst individual members that signposts common priorities, so

that together, we provide quality care for children and creative solutions to persistent problems to

see transformational change for children.

This model will promote the role of children in finding solutions and advocating for child right and

child protection.


Keeping Children Safe



Message from our Board Chairperson

The Role of Family in Holistic Development for a Better World

In the last 12 years, CRANE has been committed to creating a safe environment for children at risk in Kampala and beyond. This has

been done through different interventions like creating safe spaces, re-integrating children in families, children accessing quality

education and families remaining intact for raising responsible children who will later become parents and leaders in society. I

strongly believe that, the family is the bedrock of society and can be proven by the fact that all over the world every society is

structured by the same pattern. A man and woman marry and form a family. This process is repeated multiple times making

multiple families which form villages, regions, and eventually countries. When several countries come together they form a

continent and all of the continents make up the world. We can only create safe environment for the children when we have strong

families who have children by choice and have a commitment to look after them. The role of the family is to give a good model so

that others within the society can imitate that model, resulting in the edification of the society.

“If we fail to provide boys with pro-social models of the transition to adulthood, they may construct their own. In some cases, gang

initiation rituals, street racing, and random violence may be the result.” Leonard Sax

CRANE and its development partners have provided economic and emotional sustenance to their members, families to raise

productive, caring citizens committed to the common good. Strong, well-functioning families, whatever form they may take, can

help reduce poverty, improve the wellbeing of mothers, promote gender equality and uphold human rights,” The interventions

CRANE has used are: Family re-integration, Girl Education Challenge, Family Empowerment and Creating Safe Spaces for the

children. The interventions have contributed positively to the children, parents, projects/ churches and greater Kampala. We are

grateful to individuals and development partners who have supported CRANE with financial and social resources through


I would like to extend my appreciation to the Board of CRANE for the commitment they have exhibited in providing oversight role

and envisioning for the network. We are proud of your contribution and leadership. The same token of appreciation goes to Viva —

the Africa team for their technical support to develop proposals, negotiating for funds and ensuring that CRANE is compliant with

terms and conditions of our development partners. The CRANE members who have implemented the interventions so well have

made us proud and more visible. The development partners who have supported our cause through technical and financial support

have contributed a lot to this change. Lastly, a thank you to CRANE Secretariat team that has worked tirelessly to ensure that our

short and long term objectives are achieved.

Although a lot has been achieved, we still have the challenges of children accessing justice from Police and courts of law since they

are not well financed. Secondly, we have CRANE members who are not benefiting in the current projects. The Board has a plan of

ensuring that some of your plans are also integrated in the CRANE activities.

Allow me to thank Mrs. Grace Turyakira and Mr. Steven Mutyaba for their contributions to the CRANE Board, we shall miss their

wisdom and smiling faces. We wish them the best in their endeavors as they serve the noble cause of children in other capacities.

As we work with churches, civil societies and government, “Let us strive to strengthen these small but critical units (family) found in

every society so that we may advance as one human family toward greater progress.”

May the Almighty God bless you all.

Yours in Christ

Samuel Mayanja Ssekajja


3 CRANE Annual Report 2016 - 2017

Message from our Director

Dear Network Members, Board and the Staff at the Secretariat with all Partners within and outside of the network.

We thank God who has brought us this far, given us good health and enabled us to make a difference in the lives of

the children we wake up to serve everyday.

Have you made a difference? Or do you keep giving excuses thinking that it is not your role?!

Allow me to thread the story of ‘The Starfish’ written by Loren Einsenly in 1969, here in my own words.

This small boy found lots of starfish on the sea shore that were dying because they did not have water.

He set to throw the starfish back into the sea to save them from dying.

All members of CRANE have set to do that – to help children to find homes, education, food,

love, spiritual guidance, and positive discipline… the list goes on.

One by one, he threw them back in the water, but it seemed like a futile job since the beach was long and the starfish

were numerous.

Do you think your job is in vain? Too gigantic for you to accomplish?

Even when an old man told him that what he was doing was not going to make a difference, the boy bent down,

threw another starfish in the sea and looked at the old man and said, “I made a difference to that one!”

For every child we help, we have made a difference. Let us celebrate that.

I celebrate every success and mourn every failure, but move on one step at a time, one child at a time.

One by one, each organisation, each staff, each Director and each partner, both civil society, government and donor,

can make a difference to one child at a time, for it take a world to make a difference.

The Uganda’s civil society campaign against violence says, “It take a world to stop violence against children”. ‘That is

why we are a network that collaborates, cooperates and coordinates our efforts to give children a better world.

This year of 2017 is a year of the family as declared by the president in October 2016. If family is strong and loving, no

matter how little in monetary terms they have, the child will thrive and grow to their full potential.

Thank you for fulfilling your part.

Keeping Children Safe


Children in Education

The Girls’ Education Challenge project aimed to

help girls succeed in school who have or are most

at risk of dropping out of education through

spending a short period of time in a completely

free Creative Learning Centre (CLC) where they

receive high-quality child-centred teaching.

The project sought to do this through a

combination of interventions including the


Enrolling girls in CLCs

A bus with IT facilities

Library Truck

Setting up community savings groups

Inter-school league and annual sports event

CLC teacher and mentor training

Training parents in life skills and positive


Building toilets and making schools disability


Creative Learning Centres were found to rapidly

and significantly improve girls’ skills in literacy and

numeracy and lead most girls who attend back into

mainstream schooling and taking end of year

or national exams. All girls improved their literacy

scores during their time at the CLC. 75% of girls

who attended a CLC returned to mainstream

education and of those, 90% stayed in education

for at least 1 year. Girls in the treatment

communities had an average 25% increase in

numeracy scores and 56% increase in literacy


At the project closure, 3,629 girls had enrolled in

the 22 CLCs with 2,242 of the girls reintegrated into

another form of learning. 15,499 other children

were impacted through family mentoring, teacher

training, a mobile library, a competitive league and

a mobile IT suite.

Girls with special educational needs — The project

was particularly effective in supporting girls with

special educational needs into specialist education.

9 girls have transitioned into mainstream

education. 75% of the girls achieved the learning

targets set. The project also successfully helped

shift attitudes of the girls’ parents through mentors

and teacher-parent relationships. Parents with girls

with special educational needs reported feeling

5 5 CRANE Annual Report 2016 - 2017

more confident to educate their children and be

seen in public with them.

173 girls with special learning needs enrolled in the

CLCs, and 74 of them were given bursaries to

progress to another form of learning to achieve

their next level of academic progress.

Training and support of mainstream teachers

This has effectively improved the learning

environment of mainstream schools. 92% of CLC

teachers now use child-friendly methods and 99%

of mainstream teachers have changed their

teaching practices as a result of the training

received through the project. Ensuring the

expansion and continuation of these teaching

styles through new and refresher training as well as

teacher observations will be important to

sustaining outcomes

93 teachers were trained to support children in 22

CLCs while 705 teachers from 46 mainstream

schools were trained by 16 Centre Coordinating

Tutors and 2 Deputy Principals from 3 government

colleges from 2015 to 2016

Mentors were found to be instrumental in

facilitating girls to join CLCs and move into

mainstream education as well as supporting

parents. 81% of girls and siblings said that their

mentor has helped improve their attendance.

Mentors were also reported to have helped

parents to increase their income. It should be

considered how the mentors’ work can be

supported at the community-level to ensure

sustainability. Regular training and management of

mentors should also be done to support outcomes.

55 family mentors were trained over the course of

the project.

Mobile-resource libraries, IT teaching and

the inter-school leagues were all found to support

girls’ learning. 50% of children said that they are

enjoying learning more because they have access

to the mobile libraries. 96% of children said that

they like school more because of the IT teaching

and 100% of girls said that the inter-school leagues

have increased their commitment to education.

3,978 children have benefitted from the

competitive league and 2,369 have participated in

the an annual sports competition. 6,951 children

from CLCs and mainstream schools accessed the

mobile library whilst the Mobile IT bus provided

678 children with their first ever computer lessons

In a final project year where we sought to

maximize the results of years 1-3, seven new

specialist classrooms with IT suites were built to

become Demonstration Centres of creative

child-centred learning. 907 children accessed the

Demonstration Centres during the final year.

69 toilets and 9 ramps were constructed in 10

schools, 1 CLC, 1 Children’s Home and 1 Special

Needs Centre. 48 children have been bussed to and

from the two special needs centres within

Kampala, improving their attendance from close to

zero to 100%.

6 Keeping Children Safe


Children in Safe Spaces

CRANE is working on a 3 year project whose goal is

to see that children are protected and raised in a

family. This will be accomplished by strengthening

the capacity of Faith Based Organisations and

churches to respond to the challenges faced by

children on the streets and in homes. The progress

of the project since April 2016 are discussed


CRANE believes every child has the right to life, to

live in freedom and safety in a holistic way so that

they are then able to fulfil their God-given

potential. We are working to ensure that local

churches and organisations are safe for children.

456 local leaders, church leaders and members of

the Child and Family Protection Committees were

trained in family based care, parenting, child

protection and advocacy.

CRANE working with the Police rescued 120

children from the streets. 71 of these have been

reunited with their families and the 49 were placed

in temporary shelters (children’s homes) while we

work to trace their families.

An annual children’s camp was held at the

beginning of 2017 and had 72 children in


Two children’s seminars were held during school

holidays in the months of May and August 2016.

The purpose of the seminars was to empower

children with knowledge and skills, building their

capacity as child ambassadors to learn how to

protect themselves and their peers as well as build

skills, enabling them to recognise and respond to

unsafe situations, seek assistance effectively while

establishing and maintaining non-coercive

relationships. At the end of both seminars, the

children had a better understanding of their role as

children/youth ambassadors, their rights and

responsibilities, principles for good leadership and

formation of safe club identity.

41 Safe Clubs are up and running in local

communities supervised by a family coach who

makes sure that the clubs meet at least once every

month. They encourage them to interact and learn

more from each other. Since their formation, 1,932

children have been reached with information about

7 7

CRANE Annual Report 2016 - 2017

child rights, self-esteem and assertiveness, child

protection and HIV/AIDS.

4 roadshow advocacy events were held last year to

create awareness but also look for solutions of the

challenges that affect children in families and

children living on the streets. All this was aimed at

curbing the number of children that run away from

their homes to the streets every year.

410 families who were at risk of separation were

identified from the 41 church communities where

CRANE works. The church, along with the family

coach, reached out to the families and walked with

them through counselling, economic

empowerment and a series of trainings on

parenting, child protection and importance of


A permanent shelter for children was improved at

Wandegeya Police Station. This was after CRANE

identified a need for children to be put in a safe

place as they await transition to their homes and

family. Most of our police posts lack shelters for

children, especially those that are usually referred

or taken to them with emergencies. CRANE works

very closely with this police station to refer children

and handle cases of child abuse.

CRANE works closely with a number of duty

bearers within the government. 15 probation

officers and community development officers from

Kampala, Masaka, Luweero, Kiboga, Mpigi, Wakiso,

Nakansogola, Mbale and Iganga had a 2-day

training on the Alternative Care Framework,

adoption and fostering, court procedures and filing

cases thus empowering them with knowledge on

reintegration and family life.

Together with a number of members of the Street

Children Working Group, CRANE joined hands to

commemorate the International Day of Street

children in April last year. Our goal was to get as

many children off the streets as we possibly can.

One boy has been so far reintegrated following this


Also, prior to this event , a “Keep Smiling

Campaign” was launched in an effort to keep

children off the street and from institutionalisation.

The “Keep Smiling Campaign” is geared towards

creating awareness to the public about the push

and pull factors that lead children to the streets.

The campaign was ran for 12 months with various

activities like radio talk shows and community

awareness events that engaged different

stakeholders that included government officials,

Kampala City Council, Civil Society Organisations

and children living on the street.

CRANE is taking lead in coordinating Government

and civil society stakeholders in the Special Needs

Quality Assessment Initiative Task Force. This is

increasing awareness on inclusive education and is

helping stakeholders like Kampala Capital City

Authority and the Government Ministry in charge

of special needs to deliberately think of children

with special needs and the provision of materials

and staffing for children with special needs.


Keeping Children Safe


Children in Families

Over the past two years, CRANE has worked

to promote family based care in Uganda with a

desire to see all children living under the care of

safe and secure families as God intended it.

The project had 3 main outcomes. These include:

20 churches trained and actively participating

in family based care initiatives

20 CCIs to change practices to conform to

government requirements

Strengthen the network of churches and Child

Care Institution (CCI) ministries who learn and

share together

In the past two years, the following has been



A pastors’ conference was held in May 2016 that

brought together over 120 church leaders under

the theme “Embrace the Child”. Following it, five

trainings for church leaders were held where they

were shown how to use the “Why Children Matter”

pastors’ toolkit. As pastors use this toolkit in their

churches, they will challenge their congregations to

promote family based care.

In the last 2 years, 37 children have found foster

families through the church and 17 parents are

waiting for children to foster. Of the 37 fostered

children, 10 have been fostered by families in the

churches that we are working directly with while 27

children by families in churches attached to the

CCIs. The message of family based care is beginning

to take root in the church as a result of our

engagements with church leaders, child protection

committees, and family strengthening groups. We

are seeing the church as increasingly becoming the

source of foster families for children whose families

cannot be traced.

Through family strengthening groups, child and

family protection groups and saving schemes

interventions in churches, people have now

appreciated the importance of the church in the

wellbeing of the community members and in


9 CRANE Annual Report 2016 - 2017

helping families. Churches are now hosting children

and youth clubs, and teaching them about the

importance of family.

Child Care Institutes (CCIs)

19 CCIs committed to be part of the project, from

which 36 social workers were trained in 5 modules

of reintegration and business skills for economic

empowerment. These trainings equipped CCIs with

the skills and knowledge to help them conform to

the government requirements and sustainably

reintegrate children in families.

All 19 CCIs and 31 members of the Street Children’s

Working Group have agreed to have their CCIs to

become transit centres as a result of

several engagements with them in trainings and


By the end of the 2 year project, 890 children had

transitioned from CCIs to families. Of these, only

306 (189M, 117F) children transitioned with the

help of CRANE through provision of a start-up pack

while 584, (420M, 164F) transitioned from CCIs to

families without CRANE help, meaning that

organisations have embraced the fact that family is

the best place for the children.

CRANE has worked with CCIs to support vulnerable

families address some issues in their homes that

had the potential of disrupting resettlement of

children. 12 families were helped with IGAs, 5

houses were constructed, 2 houses were

renovated, and 1 pit latrine was constructed. In

other cases, social workers have worked directly

with families and children to adequately prepare

them for reunification and ensure that families are

in position to sustainably care for the children.


The 19 CCIs have worked together with churches

and other partners to find foster families for

children, which has resulted in the 37 children.

getting foster homes.

The 31 Street Children Working Group members

have been working together in areas of advocacy

and have successfully held several events for

children. One such event is the community

dialogue in Kisenyi slum where we discussed the

spread of HIV/AIDS, and keeping safe. We

cautioned the community and children living on

streets about the intentional spread of HIV/AIDS

that some people were carrying out.

The working group has held 24 meetings, 5 radio

talk shows and 1 TV live talk show, all aimed at

promoting family based care.

Of the 890 children that have been reintegrated in

families, 856 of them have been successful. This is

a 96.2% success rate, indicating that the

reintegration process has been sustainable with

just a few disruptions from which we can learn

from as we handle future cases. This is an

indication that majority of the children are happy

to be within their respective families.


Keeping Children Safe


Families for Children

‘Families for Children’ is a consortium of Christian

organizations that work in Kampala with the focus

of placing abandoned children in families.

Providing information and support to prospective

adoptive parents

2 adoptive parents trainings were conducted to

equip adoptive parents with knowledge on how to

handle and manage fostered children. The first was

attended by 19 participants (13F, 5M) while the

second was attended by 19 participants, (14F, 5M).

The topics included: fostering and adoption

process; and bonding and attachment issues

1 coffee morning meeting was held to give an

opportunity for adoptive parents to share their

experiences and encourage each other. 7

participants (4F, 3M) took part in this as they discussed

‘how to deal with children at the time when

they learn they are adopted’ and ‘how to facilitate

bonding between biological and foster children’

Empowering children and parents

School fees was paid for 13 children (2M,11F) that

are being fostered for the 3 school terms of 2016.

All of them were promoted to the next class. 2 of

them are enrolled for vocational courses .

15 parents were empowered with business skills

and given start-up capital such that they can start

heir own Income Generating Activities which can

lead to the growth of family income in a

sustainable way. Follow-up of these businesses and

additional support is being offered to the families.

8 children (4M,4F) attended a children’s seminar

together with child ambassadors where they were

trained to be child ambassadors in their

communities, creating awareness about their

Maternal and Child Health

‘Beginnings’ is the maternal and child health

project in Kampala run by CRANE in partnership

with Viva and Community Health Global Network.

This project seeks to improve maternal, new-born

and child health in two urban slum communities

by increasing coverage of 9 key measurable

evidence based community health practices and


The 21 peer educators were engaged in 5 trainings

aimed at giving them a good understanding about

various health issues which they can confidently

share with families and health workers in the

communities where they are serving. Topics

covered in the past year expanded to cover:

fibroids, epilepsy, eye infections, essentials of

newborn care and baby in a box.

Peer educators in Namuwongo community

engaged 15 community leaders in a one day training

that covered leadership skills, HIV/AIDS, Sexually

Transmitted Diseases and family planning


Peer educators are also engaging in community

economic empowerment activities where they

train different groups in skills that they can use to

produce items that can be sold for income. Some

of the groups trained include young mothers that

were taught how to make bags out of beads and

African sandals. 25 women in Namuwongo were

trained how to make craft shoes and bags, while

others are being taught how to make necklaces

out of paper beads.

1,272 adults and children have been reached by

the peer educators through household visits to

178 families. During these visits, they have

discussed with these families good health

practices such as the importance of sleeping under

mosquito nets and followed up on specific health

issues identified in the household.

6,256 adults and children were reached through

community meetings that were held in open

spaces. During these meetings, they have

discussed various maternal and child health issues.

Slowly we are seeing community members change

and practice what they are taught.

Message from our Treasurer

We praise God for His splendid love and provision in 2016. It has been a year of grace and great

progress, marking the completion of programs and the start of new ones. We are sincerely grateful

to the CRANE Director, the Secretariat Team, our long-time partner Viva Network Africa,

implementing partners and donors for their combined efforts to bring CRANE this far and

contributing towards CRANE’s vision of ensuring that children are safe, well and achieve their God

given potential.

The Income and Expenditure statement ending 31st March 2017 summary shows that income

received by CRANE for activities was Ugshs. 5,572,727,824 compared to Ugshs. 3,290,019,728 in

FY 2015/16 and expenditure was Ugshs. 5,652,396,654 compared to Ugshs. 2,798,801,290 in FY

2015/16. This shows an increase in project activities because of additional funds given to maximize

results of the GEC project We are grateful to God that the GEC project was successfully

implemented and closed with the endline report signed off.

CRANE general/local funds during the financial year 2016/17 was Ugshs. 316,879,731. This

included funds restricted to operational costs amounting to Ugshs. 124,574,933; Ugshs 64,354,797

for children related activities and the balance of Ugshs. 7,950,000 collections from annual

subscription from current and accrued receivables (invoices to members). Receivables equivalent

to Ugshs 20,854,350 forwarded to the next financial year.

However, this being our concern, I challenge members with outstanding invoices to ensure

membership subscription is duly paid to the secretariat on time and become a paid up member. In

addition, for sustainable donor funding towards the Network vision and objectives ownership

should be evident in our books of accounts thus payment of Annual subscription.

In summary, I am pleased to report a successful year with the financial position of the Network

being stronger as we leave the year better than when we entered it.
