Increasing retention and completion of girls to to education

In order to meet the needs of girls to access, retain and complete both primary and secondary school, Empowerment for the Poor –Uganda has been sensitizing  communities  to take children  back to school especially those in  candidate classes-Primary seven (P.7), Senior  four (S.4)  and Senior six (S.6) following the ease of national  lock down in October 2020.

It should be noted that the National COVID-19 pandemic lock-down in Uganda has greatly devastated families, however the families of orphans and vulnerable children are the most hit. These families have experienced economic meltdown that has completely drained their incomes making it hard to feed their children or taking them back to school with the current opening of candidate classes (P.7, S.4 and S.6). In such situations, any support to these families, makes a big difference.

During this period under review, we are happy to have  supported 30 girls  candidate classes (28 from P.7 and 2 from S.4) in Malangala Sub County, Mityana district  to   go back to school by supporting them with scholastic materials (books, pens, geometrical sets, pencils and partial school fees  payment to enable them access, retain and complete their candidate classes. Children supported came from  Kiwawu Modern Primary school, Kitete Umea Primary school, Kiwawu Church of Uganda Primary School, Magezi Primary School, Jeza Primary and Kiwawu  Senior Secondary School and Bbala Church of Uganda Primary school. Distribution was presided over by the Chairman LCIII of Malangala Sub County and Chairman LC1 of Magonga 

 Likewise, we were able to sensitize parents to stop pushing their children into early marriages. Aware that  the stay-at-home measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 put many children especially girls under intense mental distress to the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections, unwanted pregnancy or engaging in early marriages. The project has also  empowered these girls resist exploitation and abuse couples with sensitization on   menstrual hygiene management. We would not have been able to achieve what we have achieved without the generous support of our donors, we therefore thank you so much and request for your continued support to enable us empower and transform lives of more vulnerable  girls. We say thank you and thank you
