Education for 500 Refugee Children in Rural Uganda

by Youth Initiative for Development in Africa (YIDA)


This project will build five (5) classrooms in Kyaka II Refugee camp, Uganda, to provide Early Childhood education to 500 refugee children in the camp.

total goal


Kyaka II refugee settlement has about 40,000 refugees. 50% are the children, There are not enough schools to support education. 90% of children of 3-6 years have no access to early childhood education. About 3400 are out of school. The community needs more schools for the increasing population due to political instability in D. R. Congo. We have the target to put 800 children with 3-6 years back to school.


YIDA is constructing 3 Learning centers/school to educate 800 children by 2018.

Long-Term Impact

500 children will have access to quality education by 2018.
