Abstract [en]

This essay presents a field study executed at Ssenyange Education Centre, in Uganda. At this day school/boarding school/orphanage the children’s living conditions has been examined during two months through participating observations and informal conversations. Grounded theory has inspired this research’s methodological approach. The aim with this study is to see the work performed, how orphans’ exclusion is affected and the operation’s impact on social sustainability. Theories used in the analysis are social sustainability, Jenkins’s social identity, Jönhill’s inclusion and exclusion and Mills’s private troubles and public issues. The result shows that Ssenyange Education Centre prevent exclusion for the children at the school, and improve their living conditions by comfort, guidance and tools for the future, such as education. Through highlighting values, the children are aimed to become good people which is in extension socially sustainable. Ssenyange Education Centre’s work is sufficient and prosper for the children at their operation although the centre doesn’t have the possibility to care for every orphaned child in the country, hence there should exist more operations like Ssenyange Education Centre.
