What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Eve is in her second year at University in Uganda, she has been studying but missing classes and examinations due to lack of tuition.When girls start missing school they are far more likely to be exposed to other risks such as early pregnancy, marriage and HIV/AIDS. 90% of girls in Uganda have fallen victims of this circumstance
How will this project solve this problem?
She will never again miss examinations once tuition is paid in time, she will be in position to settle for books and concentrate on her studies till she completes University.
