how we started
Legacy Children’s Initiative (L C I) is a fully registered Non-Governmental Organization formed in June 2019. L C I’s mission is to empower the needy and vulnerable children with skills to identify, explore and utilize their full potential for their social, economic and spiritual development in a sustainable manner. L C I also exists to provide love to orphans and other vulnerable children deprived of parental love, and reintegrating them into the community through reuniting them with their families.
The project targeted single mothers, Girl child and Orphaned children who for one reason or another were not able to continue with their formal (Universal Primary/Universal Secondary Education). Their failure to do so was found to be largely the burden they shoulder of taking care of their siblings and in some cases their “invalid” care- providers. The project set out to build capacity of orphaned children for sustainability of their own lives, their siblings and their aging care providers. L C I used the local existing structures (LCI-III) as an entry point into Nsinze Sub-County, Nawaikona Village, The local leaders in liaison with the District Technical Staff, requested L C I to serve all the communities
