S.A.L.V.E. (Support and Love via Education) International is a UK and Ugandan partnership charity supporting children to stop living on the streets in Uganda. They do this through support, love, family reunification and education.
Once they have resettled a child home to their relatives, they then support the child through education and offer their support to the family through business empowerment or permaculture farming training. So far, they have resettled 377 children home and are supporting 108 children to study in school who would not otherwise afford to do so.
S.A.L.V.E. run a variety of programmes in Uganda that would welcome students with different skills to get involved; from addiction, to sustainable farming, from social enterprise to inclusive education to name a few
