School Scholarships for 20 Students Gulu, Uganda



This project provides 20 young war-effected Ugandan students to attend better schools for both primary and secondary education and also supplies the necessary scholastics for the students.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Due to the civil war in Northern Uganda between the government and the Lord's Resistance Army, many children within the country and the surrounding countries were abducted and forced to become child soldiers. While the community of Gulu is trying to rebuild itself, many families do not have the proper resources to ensure their children are safe and have optimistic futures. Through this project, we allow our students to attend schools in which both of these criteria are met.

How will this project solve this problem?

We provide school tuitions, scholastics, and other necessary items in order for these young children to attend private Ugandan schools within the community of Gulu.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will ensure every one of our 20 beneficiaries graduates from secondary school, providing each one with the education needed to maintain future occupations.
