The Initiative

Our Story

It was founded in 2013 as a Facebook page called Heart to Heart, the Counselor providing counselling services to individuals on Facebook. It was later registered as Heart to Heart Initiative in 2017 reaching out to communities with child protection and family strengthening services.

In 2016 and 2017, the organization focused on reaching out needy children and families in Acholi quarters. This was a place that had many child headed families, families had found their way to Kampala after escaping the war in Northern Uganda. Families were given clothing, shoes and food items every Christmas holiday.

In 2018, we opened up our first office in Kawempe, we later shifted to Kagoma and attention was shifted from Acholi quarters to Kagoma. The Kasozi family sacrificed part of their home for the office and general organization’s activities. This was mainly because it was easier to monitor and evaluate growth and change among the beneficiaries.

The organization has grown through the years to where it is today because God was faithful and so was the Heart to Heart team.
