Education is only tool to defeat poverty:

The only tool to defeat poverty is education, said Nelson Mandela ex-president South Africa.

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Keep Impoverished Refugees in School in Uganda project. Your commitment to help the needy to get out of poverty is really appreciated by our trustees and those who will benefit most – the children!

 Republic South Sudan can develop when the population can read and write in order to tackle the numerous obstacles of development, and without Education is nearly impossible to defeat poverty. Education, development and peace are like brothers and sisters. They go hand in hand.

Our greatest concern is Jane Amitto who is currently doing medicine at Makerere University Uganda. Her semester fee is $385 (payable quarterly). Her fees include accommodation,  lectures, foods, printable study materials, and Lab. Do you have any suggestion to help Amitto?

We are keeping children in schools that Hope Ofiriha had been paying for their studies for several years through this program. In the first term 2013: three new students were admitted in this program, two girls, and a boy. We are also paying the school fees for 18 pupils in north-Uganda. These children will return in November 2013 after writing their primary school leaving certificate "final exams" so they join their parents in south sudan.

These children are very eager to see this project progressing. We need your help to keep them at school.
