Summary

By providing an education to South Sudanese refugee children, our Uganda Education Program builds a brighter future for the children, their families, and their community.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Poverty is widespread among the South Sudanese refugee families living as squatters in slums in the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda. The children in these families cannot go to school to escape the cycle of poverty. In Uganda, parents or guardians must pay school fees to fund school buildings, books, writing materials, school meals, and uniforms. Few refugees are able to pay these fees, and many need their children to work petty jobs during school hours to put food on the table

How will this project solve this problem?

The project sends South Sudanese refugee children to day schools and boarding schools. It pays their school fees; buys them uniforms and books; and ensures they are fed, clothed, and have access to medical care. We have 300 kids on our waiting list.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project gives kids a ticket out of poverty. Educated girls can eventually give their own families a good start in life. Educated boys can escape a family cycle of hard labor. This will ripple to their families and community.
