Summary

In Fort Portal, Western Uganda, at Sky is the Limit Children's Centre, we support orphaned and vulnerable children living with HIV/AIDS, providing them with a home and education in a safe, caring community. The Sky is The Limit School caters for 350 children between the age of 3 to 14 years old who do not have the means to attend local state schools. We provide school meals for the children, improving their ability to concentrate and support the school to become self-sufficient in the long-term.

Challenge

Sky Is The Limit Centre aims to support children living with HIV/AIDS or who have lost one or both parents to the disease, by providing them with a home and an education in a safe, caring community. 45 children are resident at the Centre. The school provides education for 45 resident children as well as 315 disadvantaged children from the surrounding communities. State schools are unable to cater for pupils needing extra care, such as HIV/AIDs sufferers, or those who cannot afford school fees.

Solution

We provide daily school meals to the children that gives them the energy to study and play football; we provide funds to support the teachers and to enable the school to increase its current level of students and teachers with eight new teaching assistants to cover the youngest classes; we provide pigs and fruit trees to support the small farm that supplies the school with food for the children and have put in a well for fresh water. School transport enables the children to get to school.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of the project gives an increased number of children the opportunity to receive an education and raise their level of skills ability to support themselves and their families, thereby becoming self sufficient individuals able to contribute to their society. The number of people affected is exponential as more children benefit from the education offered by Sky Is The Limit School.
