RIVER FUND WOMEN’S ASSOCIATION KITGUM

ACTIVITY REPORT FOR FEBRUARY 2024 SUBMITTED TO EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RIVER FUND USA

Date: 15th February 2024

Introduction

The girls’ sponsorship is a sub component of Feed Educate and Empower Girls and Women of Acholi supported by GlobalGiving. It is implemented by River Fund HIV/AIDS family support women association, a CBO located in Kitgum district northern Uganda. The River Fund USA provides leadership and support.

The project aims to help prevent drop outs of secondary school through provision of school fees, sanitary towels and mentoring.

Numbers of girl under sponsorship

There are twenty girls (20) who are now in Senior Four in their various schools.

Payment of school fees

All the girls have reported back to school and have been fully paid for first term.

School visit

Mentors have visited the girls to encourage them to work very hard being that this is their final year in O level. The girls were also provided with sanitary pads for first term.

Challenges

  • Long distances from school for some students.
  • Staying in school without taking lunch.
  • Some students have difficulty of having full school uniform

Recommendation

Mentors will be visiting the girls and their families to encourage parents to be more involved in their children’s school affairs by ensuring they provide full school uniforms and lunch for the students. Mentors will also encourage parents to visit the schools frequently and monitor their children’s academic and moral performances.

Conclusion

We wish to extend our appreciation to the River Fund team in USA and our donors in the GlobalGiving who are helping the River Fund members in Kitgum district to make it possible to help the needy girls’ education. Appreciation is also extended to the Executive and members of River Fund Association Kitgum for their commitment towards achieving the set goals.
