The Covid-19 pandemic led to a deepening of inequalities across the education system in Uganda. Due to the pandemic, in fact, Uganda enforced the longest period of school closures worldwide, lasting 22 months and leading an estimated 15 million pupils to remain out of school for almost two years. When schools reopened, many students, due to poverty, did not return to school.

St. John Bosco technical training school provides support to youth who are unable to attend the mainstream education system up to university-level, by giving them a chance to develop practical skills to boost their employability.

However, funding is inadequate, hindering the school’s ability to provide its critical services. The prolonged drought largely affected crop yield and as such, food prices remain high. Moreover, school fee collection stays low.

Thanks to the support received, the school was able to buy 600 kgs of maize and 250 kgs of beans for the next term and maintain low fees for students.

As the school prepares to enter its third term, funds are all the more necessary. In fact, as national examinations will be carried out, there is a need for more materials to be used in training and exams across the departments of Building, Carpentry and Mechanics. Furthermore, paying staff salaries remain a significant challenge. For these reasons, every donation makes a difference.

Thank you so much for your continued support!

The new term is about to start at the St John Bosco Technical Training School Ngetta with the total number of students in the school is 131. Out of these, only half manages to pay their fees in full by the end of the term in various installments

Thanks to your donations on this platfrom as well as direct donations we have received on Afrilanthropy bank account we were able to support various 36 students this year from various sections and develop a future carreer in carpentry, mechanics and construction

The Don Bosco school also used some of the cash to buy food item (beans and maize) for the new school term as at this time the rain is just coming back (planting season for the first rain) whereby prices of food tends to be high until harvest sometime in July.

We are also concerned about the rising food prices, which is likely to push even more people in Uganda to poverty and the trade off for families to invest in future of their youuth and meeting the very basic necessity is likely to push more people out of school 

To this effect we would appreciate your help in promoting our fundraising to your nework, taking advantage of the matching GlobalGiving is offering this week matching new donations at 50% until April 8 midnight ET

Thanks a lot
