Challenge

Education is every child's right but 40% of Ugandan children do not attend state or fee-paying schools because of parental poverty. Meeting the cost of scholastic materials, uniforms, fees, and school 'gifts' is impossible without going into debt or selling family assets. Girls not in school are at risk of sexual exploitation, early pregnancy, and disease; boys are easily exploited by illegal labour. 8% of our supported children are orphans due to parental death from illness or natural disaster.

Solution

Trio Uganda and its partners create low-cost educational opportunities in impoverished communities by developing community-led schools, nurseries, and vocational bursaries. We now support 500 young Ugandans in four registered projects led by skilled local people When we invest in young people through vocational bursaries, graduates return to the community with new ideas and expertise.

Long-Term Impact

Trio Uganda works to the principles of grassroots Asset-Based Community Development. At its heart is the belief that strong communities are built over time by maximising local relationships, skills, knowledge, commitment, and trust. There are no quick fixes and change is challenging but the 500 children now in education have a head start. In time, they will make their communities stronger and ensure future children benefit from education. Your support today is an investment in tomorrow.
