by Child Care And Youth Empowerment Foundation
Vetted

Summary

Child Care and Youth Empowerment Foundation plans to extend financial support to 20 more vulnerable ex-brides in Uganda returning to school to better their lives and the lives of their babies. They presently can't pay for it, yet their parents kicked them out of their homes and rejected them due to pregnancy. With this education, they will be literate and secure better jobs.

Challenge

At 15, Katrina was defiled. When her family discovered that she was pregnant, they abandoned her. Having no other support, Katrina reached out to CCAYEF. We ensured her safe delivery and sponsored her return to school where she is now studying to become a nurse. Just like Katrina, 20 new ex-brides need support to return to school. Through education, they will lower their risk of entering into early marriage, becoming victims of gender-based violence and become self-sustaining.

Solution

Payment of school fees, provision of scholastic materials, purchase of mandatory school uniforms, continuous school monitoring and follow-up of 20 ex-brides.

Long-Term Impact

This project will educate 20 new ex-brides, empowering them and allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' health and well-being.
