Project Report | Jun 1, 2022
We thankful we are in Term II

By Nakayi Florence | Project Leader

The longer-term impacts of COVID-19 on the education system in Uganda have greatly affected our children in schools. The longer the kids stayed home caused the children to not want to be in school again. Most children especially from low-income families where our children come from were engaging in income-generating activities because they had to help their mothers to earn to be able to support their families, majority of the slum children are out of school because their parents are not able to pay the rising fees, those that have managed to get back to school, their academic performance in the first term was greatly influenced by what happened during those the 2 years they were not in school. We are working along with the schools to see that we support and encourage our children to fall back into the morale they had for books.

 Since the school fees almost doubled, school requirements became so expensive as an effect of covid 19, our organization has been greatly affected as well, this year we weren’t able to add on a new child to our sponsorship program as a goal has been for each year. Out of 139 children registered for this program, we have 15 children that are fully sponsored in school, and we are happy to report that all their school requirements and fees are covered for this second term.  We can’t stop thanking all our monthly donors who have committed to seeing that our children are paid for and are sustained in school. Thank you very much.

Julius is one of our students whose education journey we have walked with him since he was 5 years old. Julius has been raised by a single mother, with his other older sibling. Julius is born and raised within the Katanga slum, this is where he has been all his life, his father abandoned them when his mother was pregnant. Julius didn’t get a chance to see his father taking care of them or his mother. What is so amazing is that Julius wants to be a different boy, to make a good husband when he grows up. he also wants to take care of his mother, even at his tender age he is promising that he wants to become a doctor, get a good salary and build his mother a decent home. Currently, he is Senior 1, we happy that we have walked 7 years with Julius and we want to see him graduate 8 years from now.

This is Julius.
This is Julius.
