Slum Life Survival




Slum life survival (SLS) is a NGO which was started after close looking the need to help transform people living in slum areas (social-economic transformation) and we target Youth, Children, Girl child, people with disability and Elderly. In Slum, heavy populated urban areas are characterized by substandard houses and squalor and this is as a result of constant migration of rural population to cities in searching for jobs which cause unbearable strain on urban housing and basic services and the high costs of properties in the cities (poverty) forces people to stay in poor life style. Slum life survival has direct presence of its Interventions in 2 Districts in Uganda where we run only 1 youth friendly drop-in Centre so far located (Kawanda) offering different services to slum youth.
