Sumaya joined the HALO family in 2008 after her mother was no longer able to care for her. While living in the HALO Mengo Home, she attended school and completed her primary education. Sumaya is currently in the Salon and Cosmetology progam at the HALO Uganda Learning Center.
For over 5 years, the Uganda Learning Center provides a collaborate space for HALO Uganda youth to gather, learn, teach, grow and flourish. As Uganda continues to develop and advance as a country, our youth increasingly experience issues similar to those of American inner city youth. We have seen through our programming for youth in the U.S. that after school programming centers and continued education certifications can make all the difference for a child or young adult. The Learning Center is a place for youth to explore their passions and become engaged in safe and fun activities. Classes include Salon, Dance, Sewing and Fashion Design, Computer Skills, Music and Health Education.
Thank you for supporting young adults like Sumaya so that she can follow her passion to one day work at a salon and become a contributing member of her community.
