Caregivers East Africa LTD purpose is to achieve health, safety and social goals and solutions. We use the social investment approach to address the needs of society and communities while generating income from supplying equipment, training and services to the people and communities of East Africa.
CAGIEA (Caregivers East Africa) is a for profit social enterprise whose core purpose is to create and implement social, health and safety solutions. We aim to generate profit in order to achieve social and environmental goals by harnessing market efficiency and partnerships with the public sector. Our partnerships with the public sector are critical to our mission and success to provide social and environmental solutions and services.
Caregivers East Africa was established in 2011 as a health and social service provider due to the gaps in the provision of social services in area of safety and health throughout Uganda and East Africa including Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, DRC, Central Africa Republic and Sudan
We are currently engaged in confined space rescue training and traffic control services as well as planning our Long Short Walk of 2016 and School Road Safety Campaign.
Our core objectives are to;
Provide rapid response rescue services to residential homes, shopping complexes, commercial businesses, schools and highways
Train personnel to utilize our state of the art rapid rescue approaches and technology for cars, trucks, buses, homes, commercial buildings
Establish operational rescue centers that are equipped with adequate rescue equipment and trained personnel at designated locations to have the ability to respond to traffic accidents on the roads and emergencies in the communities
Enhance policy dialogue on safety and increase the availability of rescue products for individual, town, community use to reduce excessive casualty and loss of life
Increase the availability of traffic control service by making available professionally trained and qualified traffic wardens to businesses and communities to reduce incidents and injuries
Safety Problems of Communities:
There are many situations, conditions and disasters that take place in our communities that call for added resources from the private sector. These range from small home based accidents to large community disasters that occur in places of work, roads, shopping centers and industrial areas. The existing mechanisms to deal with such incidents that can provide the rapid response rescue and ambulance services are limited to cities and urbanized locations.
Some existing safety and rescue assistance services focus on areas that do not address the client or public safety and accident scene management. These service providers are involved in incidents that address elements like road rescue of vehicles such as towing services, lock outs, fuel, flat tires and minor vehicle breakdowns.
In our services we seek to utilize core technology that will respond to all rescue requirements of persons involved in accidents and we will be accessible through a range of appropriate technology and skills of specifically trained response teams for various accidents, incidents and disasters. We will have the ability to maintain control of the accident scene to protect the bystanders and public since our rescue personnel will also be trained to serve as traffic wardens as well as first responders and emergency rescue persons. Our personnel will be trained to assist any Traffic Police on the scene or take control and maintain safety until Police arrive.
Many times the critical and necessary people to respond to an accident or emergency situation are ill prepared. These first responders and rescue providers are usually not equipped to handle emergency situations or major, complicated and sometimes fatal accidents. Some situations and accidents may involve hazardous materials, petro - gasoline or diesel fuel, explosions or potential explosive materials, gases and fumes. A vehicle may have crashed into buildings that caused a structural instability or collapse and numerous injuries. Such accident scenes require specialized equipment and professionally trained personnel to control the scene, treat the injured and preserve lives.

Wear disposable latex gloves or improvise / substitute with plastic bags or what is available as a protective barrier when there is a risk of coming into contact with bodily fluids
