Summary

2 out 3 children cannot afford primary education in Uganda. At completion of the primary level, a child is equipped with basic knowledge and skills.Orphans and vulnerable children in disadvantaged communities are our target group. Supporting these children with scholastic materials and school fees will enable a child to stay in school and complete primary or even secondary education thus opening doors to a better paid job and a way out of poverty.150 children currently benefit from the program.

Challenge

In Uganda, 2/3 of children drop out of school before completing their primary education due to the viscous cycle of poverty attributed by high levels of unemployment of their parents in the slum areas. Orphans,vulnerable children and child headed families often fall victim of these circumstances of illiteracy.With no access to education, the community is endangered with high levels of illiteracy that breed crime,unemployment ,and poor living standards that will affect generations a head.

Solution

Over 500 children living in the slums will be able to access to education through sponsorship and provision of school fees and scholastic materials. Through continuous monitoring of the progress of a child's education, guidance to improve their performance and make better career choices for a brighter future will be to the children.

Long-Term Impact

With support, more than 500 children will access education thus eliminating poverty. Having an educated community conveys at least 60% of increased knowledge to create jobs and skills to perform in the employment sector. With reduction in illiteracy levels,unemployment gap will be depreciated. We believe that education of children will elevate families from poor living standards to moderate standards of living and this effect will be spread to communities.
