What We Do
As a trusted implementing partner in the Government of Uganda, KCOC provides integrated services to support missions around the nation. With proven capabilities that span the full spectrum of mission services. KCOC offers effective solutions to the complex challenges facing our community/society including the nation at large.

Voluntary Work
Uganda has an extremely high number of children living in poverty and many of these vulnerable children have lost one or both of their parents as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Volunteers in the Childcare project in Uganda are placed in day care centers, nursery schools and kindergarten to assist local staff in the day to day running of these centers.  All of these centers are extremely under resourced and volunteers play a key role in ensuring they operate effectively. Volunteer activities vary across the different centers, however typical tasks include, educational activities and basic teaching of English, Math, Health/Hygiene,  Reading and Writing. Other activities include play therapy and games, dancing, singing, arts and crafts, as well as assisting with feeding and daily chores.
