We are excited! The new school year started this past Monday and we have over thirty girls at our northern Uganda location who are in secondary school. Many of these girls have sponsors however, in several cases, the girl does not have a sponsor and needed help from our scholarship fund which this project helps fund. Had these funds not been available, the girl would have missed her chance to further her education and most likely would have dropped out to get married. In 2011, there were no girls in secondary school from this area of northern Uganda!
We are especially happy that three of the girls who graduated from sixth grade did very well on the national exams that they took in November. This means they had a better selection of schools to choose from for their secondary education. Again, funding from this project is making it possible for these girls to continue their education. We currently have three more girls who scored very well on their exams and are hoping for sponsors. Do you know of someone who might be willing to join in and help these girls reach secondary school (7th grade)?
