Despite the enormous benefits of being able to attend school and receive an education, the costs involved in sending children to school in Uganda are prohibitive for the majority of slum residents.
The cost of school fees, uniforms, pens, paper, pencils, shoes and transport means that a large number of children have no hope of attending school. Poverty levels make it extremely difficult to develop any savings and often money for school fees is instead spent on greater needs such as food.
Education means opportunities and empowerment. Through supporting education, we are giving children the means to obtain necessary skills that will give them a better future in life.
Our contribution to promoting education in Uganda include
- Paying school fees for vulnerable children (primary) and young people (secondary).
- Provision of scholastic materials.
- Career guidance and mentoring.
- Tutoring children with their school work
