This project will pay school fees for 10 children for one school term. They make necklaces for sale to earn money for their school fees and other needs at home. For the last three months there have not been any sales made due to a high competition in the market. Globalgiving donors are already raising money to cater for the kids scholastic materials, they have paid for the kid's school shoes.
A big number of children in Uganda cannot complete education due to lack of school fees resort to the streets or begging. if these children do not go back to school next year, it means all the years they have spent in the home and at school will be wasted years and this means that boys and girls will resort to bad behaviors. There is a high chance kids may not go back to school next term
This funding will enable 10 children go back to school for one term as the project finds another alternative to raise money locally to cater for the children's needs next year. Keeping children at school enables them to complete the education cycle, all these kids are bright and have kept on getting the best grades that have enabled them being promoted to new classes.
The children have kept on making their own money for their education and other basic needs at home, they will grow up responsible men and women who will be job creators other than job seekers. The skills they get at school will enable them put in practice what they already practice at home.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Build a Home for 50 Orphans in Uganda. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
