Challenge

Children living in former internally displaced camps have very little or no exposure to the opportunities that can build their futures let alone know about the outside world. They have been deprived of any meaningful life and their schools offer very little opportunites to make them excel in life. Most of the schools have inadequate educational support and lack of higher educational opportunities that contributes to a very small number of children doing well in primary schools.

Solution

Through our programme, the children will learn a variety of skills like communication, writing, games, sharing, discipleship etc. We help improve their grades and further develop their interests and hobbies, as well as provide access to developing extra curricular activities that keep them busy and educate them through fun interactions.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help in establishing friendship amongst these children and increase their knowledge about other communities. We believe that the path to lasting peace in the Northern Uganda is through a robust civil society and our programs make possible for Uganda's future innovators, teachers, policymakers and workers to succeed beyond their current expectations.
