Summary

This project is a programme for school children previously living in former internally displaced camps. The project will allow the children in this region to interact and exchange ideas, activities and stories with their counterparts in England. They will have personal development and extracurricular activities to develop their hobbies and interests and link this two communities together. The program will support at least 50 children in Gulu, Uganda.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Children living in former internally displaced camps have very little or no exposure to the opportunities that can build their futures let alone know about the outside world. They have been deprived of any meaningful life and their schools offer very little opportunites to make them excel in life. Most of the schools have inadequate educational support and lack of higher educational opportunities that contributes to a very small number of children doing well in primary schools.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through our programme, the children will learn a variety of skills like communication, writing, games, sharing, discipleship etc. We help improve their grades and further develop their interests and hobbies, as well as provide access to developing extra curricular activities that keep them busy and educate them through fun interactions.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will help in establishing friendship amongst these children and increase their knowledge about other communities. We believe that the path to lasting peace in the Northern Uganda is through a robust civil society and our programs make possible for Uganda's future innovators, teachers, policymakers and workers to succeed beyond their current expectations.
