Summary

The "Educate a Child" program will provide school fees to support the underprivileged (including the homeless) in the Greater Masaka communities. Access to affordable, quality education will help them unlock their full potential, talents, and wisdom. The goal is to educate the less privileged young people and provide them with sufficient skills and education so that they can, in turn, grow to be able to support the needs of their communities.

Challenge

There are a lot of young men and women in Masaka District who are unable to afford education. Nkoema.com reported, "In 2018, youth illiteracy for Uganda was 939,689." Which means that in 2018 alone, there were almost 1 million illiterate youths in Uganda. This has resulted in street-living, starvation, and a lack of hope. It has also made some victims of abuse and caused unwanted pregnancies. As the report shows, there is a high illiteracy rate in Uganda, and we want to help in Masaka.

Solution

The goal is to educate young, less privileged people, focusing on skills and providing them with sufficient skills and education to support the needs of their communities. This project aims to support at least 100 underprivileged (including homeless) children, aged 5-25 years, by December 2023.

Long-Term Impact

The strategy we have adopted is to provide quality education to at least 100 homeless children with a holistic education that addresses both their physical and emotional needs while creating dignity through self-reliance, beginning at a tender age. This program will reduce the beneficiaries' chances of being victims of abuse and teenage pregnancies. This program will instill the importance of education in the beneficiaries, which they will pass on to their children & their children's children.
