Summary

This project will support 100 Girls Access quality Education & it will improve 3 rural Early Childhood Development Centers in Kole. Girls in villages of Kole do not have access to quality Education & childhood care due to Poverty,Early Marriages & Bad Cultures. Also children are absorbed directly to primary school and they find difficulty in adopting/coping, resulting in dropouts,aggressiveness & poor cognitive development. The OVCs too can not afford school fees and other scholastic materials.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Effects of the over 20 years of war between the LRA & Uganda Government still lingers on. This war led to abject poverty, HIV/AIDS and deaths, leaving large numbers of orphans. Early Childhood Education in Kole is not given priority, this leads to children (3-6 years) joining primary schools directly owing to dropouts, child to child violence, poor cognitive growth & very low transit rate. Girls in Kole drop out of school due to bad cultures of Early marriage,lack of scholastic materials & fees.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will support 100 Girls to attain their education dreams through paying their school fees & providing scholastic materials like pens, books, and sanitary pads. It will also Advocate for the Education of girls through helping parents develop a paradigm shift. It will continue to liaise with the communities & establish/improve on 3 ECDCs through providing learning aids & environment where they are stimulated to play, learn and develop.

Potential Long Term Impact

We want to see 100 Girls supported to access quality Education - a major problem in rural areas. We also want particular families with social & economic disadvantage with children under 6 years to have improved income & food. We want children in the rural areas to have healthier environments to grow up in. 100 Orphans and other Vulnerable Children get quality education while 3 ECD centers have play kits, learning aids, safe environment to study in. We want a paradigm shift on Education of girls.
