Summary

Northern Uganda has after decades of war begun to dare to hope for a brighter,safer future. Much work remains to be done to help the people and society to recover. Jeremiah Lucas Opira Foundation (JLOF) aims to support the recovery process by providing educational support to 350 underprivileged school children by helping one primary school with school fees and school uniforms for the entire school. We also intend to support the school with the most necessary school materials.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Northern Ugandas Acholi sub-region has been greatly affected by the Lord's Resistance Army insurgency. In addition to gross violations of human rights, the conflict eroded the core of the society which will take a long time to rebuild. Uganda has since received some deserved attention and support. The help has however only reached as far as the paved roads go. Our help will directly benefit 350 children, their families, school personnel and ultimately the whole village.

How will this project solve this problem?

We help Pajong Primary School and its entire student body for one year with school fees, uniforms and school materials. We believe that access to schooling and education will lead to not only a place to learn, but also a place to meet each other, children and parents. We are also convinced that with the right support school will lead to innovation, entrepreneurship and hope. We intend to partner with other organisations to bridge the digital gap by encouraging studies in science and technology.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will facilitate access to education and increase the number of educated and self-supporting individuals in the area. Parents/guardians will be motivated to send and keep children in school, and school dropout rates will reduce, improving academic performance so that pupils are able to create and compete in future job markets. In addition, education can increase stability and promote peace-building.
