Social Promise is partnering with St Jude Children's Home in Gulu, Uganda to provide five girls living in Uganda the opportunity to attend upper secondary school. These girls have already completed 11 years of schooling and are primed to advance to this educational stage which is equivalent to A levels in the British system. Only a small percentage of students in Gulu have the chance to attend school at this level which prepares them for University.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The people of Gulu, Uganda suffered through over 30 years of terrorizing, growth-impeding rebel activity that led to an enormous increase in the number of orphaned, vulnerable children. St. Jude offers comprehensive alternative family care to orphans and extremely vulnerable children. This project will provide children with hope for the future through education, an opportunity to continue on to advanced levels of schooling.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will provide five young women with tuition and the necessary supplies required to complete secondary school. Your donation and the partnership between Social Promise and St Jude Children's Home also guarantees that orphaned and extremely vulnerable children have nutrition and a home.
Potential Long Term Impact
By providing access to education, you are significantly changing the future of these children. Advanced schooling allows these young girls the opportunity to be proficient in a skill which will qualify them for jobs. In turn, these jobs afford them the freedom to become independent members of their communities. Caring for the well-being and education of orphans at St Jude's Home allows these children otherwise unimaginable hope.
