Outreach Uganda continues to provide support for older girls in school. During 2017, our sixth grade girls boarded at school for two entire terms. This is major progress from 2016, when they were able to board for only the last month of the school year. In addition, we were able to provide a solar light system for the girls' boarding area beginning in August, so they have ample light for studying at night.
Boarding at school is very important because it allows the girls to devote much time to their studies instead of being overworked at home. We hope that this will mean they do well on their exams which are happening in November. We won't know their exam results until January. We hope that the additional time to study will show improved results from the prior year. This will mean that even more girls will achieve well enough to progress on to 7th grade where they can pursue either a vocational track of learning or a more academic track.
Either way, you can support these girls through this Globalgiving project. Help make sure no girl is left behind and forced into early marriage simply because there were no school fees for her to continue.her schooling.
Thanks for your continued support of this very beneficial project for girls.
