Educate 150 Orphans and vulnerable girls in Uganda


While it is true everyone has struggled with the unprecedented impact of the Covid pandemic, it has had a more devastating impact on the girl child. As the government of Uganda plans to reopen schools after 1 year, many of the girls may not be able to resume school because they lack uniform, books, fees. FOWAC plans to dedicate International Women's Week to create hope in 150 Orphans and Vulnerable Girls in Kitgum to return to school decently, by providing them with basic scholastic needs.
