Educate 1,500 rural children in Northern Uganda

by Solidarity for Rural Development Organisation (SORUDEO)
Educate 1,500 rural children in Northern Uganda

Summary

24 years of war have seriously undermined the educational potential of an entire generation of children in Northern Uganda, destroying the region's prospects for future development. At the dawn of peace in 2006; 737 schools in Northern Uganda (60 per cent of the total) were non-functioning; 250,000 children received no education at all. This project is a package of recovery to educate over 1,500 rural orphans and vulnerable children including disabilities children and to empower rural schools.

Challenge

After 24 years of war in Northern Uganda, poverty has continued to pervade the rural areas. Children in the rural areas of Northern Uganda have the highest levels of educational deprivation. There are high school dropouts and poor performance in the rural pre-primary, primary and secondary schools, with much pressure on children with disabilities, orphans and vulnerable children in the rural areas. This project will give a chance to these rural children to receive quality education.

Solution

The rural children of Northern Uganda have suffered enough because of the past war, and so this project provides academic materials, PTA school fees, school management trainings, children sports and games equipments, computers and computer trainings, school uniforms to orphans and vulnerable children and children living with disabilities. You can help us give a chance to brighten the future of these children through education.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 1,500 children by providing essential school-related costs, particularly PTA fees and uniform costs, scholastic materials so that the costs of going to schools are not barriers to their enrollment and attendance. Improved monitoring and management of rural schools, strong vocational and technical training opportunities for rural children with disabilities, orphans and other vulnerable children.
