Gladys, A Role Model for Future Girls

Gladys Before and After Being Sponsored
Gladys Before and After Being Sponsored

Our Girls' Education Initiative continues to provide a pathway for Uganda girls to gain access to a secondary education and vocational training. We thank you for your continued support for helping girls stay in school.

We hope that they can follow the path of Gladys, one of the girls who has been in our sponsorship program for the past ten years. Gladys is now completing her university program to earn a diploma in the business field.  Before she joined our program in 2008, she had dropped out of school because her mother could no longer afford it. 

We are excited to see Glady's future unfold and hope that she can be an inspiration to other girls following in her footsteps. We hope that some of the top performing girls at the northern Uganda primary school (see photo) where we distributed sanitary pad kits this past summer can become part of our sponsorship program in 2019. 

Sixth graders took their very important national exams in November. They will learn their scores in mid-January. This will determine whether they can continue on to secondary school and what school will want to give them admission.  There are eight Agwata girls who took this exam along with many girls from other nearby schools where Outreach Uganda distributed sanitary pad kits these past two years.

We'll keep you updated. But please spread the word. Your help is critical to being a stepping stone for girls to stay in school until a longer term sponsor is found.

Thank you!
