Visitor's Policy & Waiver

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to visit the projects that Just Like My Child Foundation supports in Uganda. We take our partnerships on the ground in Uganda very seriously and as a visitor, you are representing Just Like My Child Foundation. We request you to help us in reviewing and abiding by the following policy to ensure your visit with us is a success. All visitors, volunteers and service providers who are traveling with Just Like My Child Foundation to Uganda are asked to sign this document in the space provided below.
The items you are agreeing to below are to protect YOU and to protect the process of development Just Like My Child is engaged in with its partners on the ground. You will surely be inspired during your visit to make an even broader contribution/difference in the lives of the people we serve. By following the agreements below, you can best ensure that your investments and commitments will have long-lasting, impact that provide a hand up, not a hand out AND provide you with the knowledge you are making a TRUE difference.

1. The people of Uganda are very important to Just Like My Child Foundation. We do our best to handle all situations and treat all individuals with respect and dignity and we request you to do the same.

2. We expect that all visitors traveling with Just Like My Child Foundation be as culturally sensitive and courteous in their dress, manner and conduct as possible. Please review the document “A Visitors Guide for Travel to Uganda” that has been given to you by Just Like My Child Foundation prior to your visit and let us know if you should have any questions prior to or during your trip.

3. Any form of sexual exploitation, sexual advances and/or child abuse by any visitor constitutes gross misconduct and said visit will be terminated immediately. Noncompliance with these requirements will be taken seriously. This will involve legal action in the United States if appropriate.

4. As a visitor, you are requested to stay with the Just Like My Child Foundation group. We ask that you involve Just Like My Child representatives in all conversations regarding programs or expanding programs with our local partners on the ground in Uganda. There should be no discussion with our Ugandan partners of creating new programs outside of Just Like My Child Foundation’s strategic initiatives on the ground. Please do have these conversations with a JLMC staff member. We urge you to utilize your visit with us in Uganda as an opportunity to learn and observe in order to inform yourself of the complexities of the context and the value that comes in sustainable strategies.

5. We ask that you consult with a Just Like My Child representative prior to exchanging phone, mailing or email addresses between yourself and local partners/sponsorship recipients.

6. We ask that all donations and gifts of any size (food, toys, money, buildings) for Bishop Asili Hospital, village communities and sponsorship recipients, including their families, be coordinated through a JLMC representative.

7. We ask all visitors to abide by Just Like My Child Foundations discretion when taking photographs, videos or obtaining stories from people while visiting our projects or traveling within the country with us. We request visitors to respect all Ugandans dignity and their right to privacy. Please request the permission of all individuals you wish to photograph as a sign of respect. A good contrast would be to imagine how you would feel in North America if a stranger began taking photographs of you in your home without your permission or any introduction.

8. If you are shooting photos and videos of our projects, we ask that Just Like My Child Foundation be credited when the content appears publicly and that any media or content be approved by us before published and shown to a larger audience.

9. Visitors must be 15 years of age or older and minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
