Quarterly Report

Introduction

The girls’ sponsorship sub component of feed education 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 help prevent dropouts of secondary school through provision of school fees, sanitary towels and mentoring.
Number of girls under sponsorship: There are twenty girls being the beneficiaries.

Payment of school fees:

The school fees for 2nd term 2022 has been paid fully.

School visit:

Mentors will visit the girls monthly to encourage them.

Gender Based Violence:
As far as GBV is concerned, the lockdown has given a lot of problems such that people are in total poverty as a result there are rampant fighting and divorce in many homes. Poverty after the pandemic is increasing. The group members are rendering door to door counselling in order to address it.

People with Nodding Syndrome:
The patients suffering with nodding syndrome are in total poverty. We hope to resume feeding soon.

Challenges:
Many girls are trying to catch up after more than a year out of school due to the pandemic.

Conclusion
We wish to extend our appreciation to the River Fund team in USA and our donor in the GlobalGiving who are helping River Fund members in Kitgum district to make it possible to help the needy girls educate and Nodding Syndrome patients.
