Summary

This project will support 100 Girls Access quality Education & it will improve 3 rural Early Childhood Development Centers in Kole. Girls in villages of Kole do not have access to quality Education & childhood care due to Poverty,Early Marriages & Bad Cultures. Also children are absorbed directly to primary school and they find difficulty in adopting/coping, resulting in dropouts,aggressiveness & poor cognitive development. The OVCs too can not afford school fees and other scholastic materials.

Challenge

Effects of the over 20 years of war between the LRA & Uganda Government still lingers on. This war led to abject poverty, HIV/AIDS and deaths, leaving large numbers of orphans. Early Childhood Education in Kole is not given priority, this leads to children (3-6 years) joining primary schools directly owing to dropouts, child to child violence, poor cognitive growth & very low transit rate. Girls in Kole drop out of school due to bad cultures of Early marriage,lack of scholastic materials & fees.

Solution

The project will support 100 Girls to attain their education dreams through paying their school fees & providing scholastic materials like pens, books, and sanitary pads. It will also Advocate for the Education of girls through helping parents develop a paradigm shift. It will continue to liaise with the communities & establish/improve on 3 ECDCs through providing learning aids & environment where they are stimulated to play, learn and develop.

Long-Term Impact

We want to see 100 Girls supported to access quality Education - a major problem in rural areas. We also want particular families with social & economic disadvantage with children under 6 years to have improved income & food. We want children in the rural areas to have healthier environments to grow up in. 100 Orphans and other Vulnerable Children get quality education while 3 ECD centers have play kits, learning aids, safe environment to study in. We want a paradigm shift on Education of girls.
