Challenge

Walking through Kebirigo on a weekday, you’ll notice a heart-wrenching number of schoolage children who, rather than go to school, play in the dirt street. These children don’t stay home because they don’t have a desire to attend school, but because those who care for them lack the resources to buy the necessary school uniforms, lunches, books, supplies, and tuition fees. By arming them with those necessities, you can prepare them for an education that will serve them throughout their lives.

Solution

Through a network of local community groups who have taken orphans and impoverished children under their wing, we use donations to pay for school fees and purchase all the sundries that schools require of students, from books to uniforms.

Long-Term Impact

In the third world, the surest way to escape the cycle of poverty is to start life with an education. There is indisputable positive correlation between education and GDP per capita over time. Education will lead to growth, business, and prosperity.
