Send an unprivileged child to school in Uganda

by National sports academy extra


This project will build classrooms to provide free education and meals to unprivileged children who hail from the poorest sections of society in Lungujja-Kossovo, also putting in place a number of ventures that these children can be involved to explore and discover their natural gifts and skills alongside providing platform for them to live a better future.

There are approximately 10,000 street children in the urban areas of Uganda whose ages are mainly between 0 and 17 years old according to UNICEF figures from 2005. Although the government is working diligently to provide education at different levels, street children and other vulnerable groups of children are still outside the reach of main stream services and support making it hard for them to attend school. This project will affect more than 1000 unprivileged children who reside on streets.


NSAE provides free education, nutrition, accommodation and health care to unprivileged children. The children are placed in real homes where their physical needs are met. We purposefully create a family setting so that they learn love and respect as they live with their mother and siblings. This allows them to grow up knowing a healthy, functional life. Each child has their own bed and space to manage their belongings thereby building a sense of ownership and responsibility.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 1000 unprivileged children allowing them to rise out of illiteracy, poverty, and homelessness which will provide for their families' health and well-being. The project will empower these children to explore and discover their natural gifts and skills alongside providing platform for them to live a better future, hence raising leaders and developing the community.
