Safe return to schools after lockdown

Due to the fact that many learners faced several challenges during COVID-19 lockdown which included teenage mothers, others got involved in the business and   that upon re-opening of schools, many parents were still hesitant to take children back to school because they lacked funds to support their education.

During this period therefore, Empowerment for the poor -Uganda focused on encouraging the parents and guardians to take the children back to school, offering counseling and psychosocial support to both the children and their care takers while showing them the importance of education tha; every child has the right to education and Uganda has pledged to uphold this through Articles 28 and 29 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Evidence shows that education and learning lead to better-improved development outcomes for countries, families, and future generations

The campaign involved changing the mindset especially amongst the children who had lost the hope of going to school again,  their guardians as well as the teachers most of whom had absconded the  profession due to the untold financial stress which had been brought about by the COVID -19 lockdown.

To the most vulnerable children, scholastic materials like books, pens and pencils were offered so that they also can go back to school just like their counterparts despite the desperate financial situation of their families.  However, due to extreme financial difficulty caused by the pandemic, only 112 orphans and vulnerable children benefited from our service, which also would have been impossible without the kind support and generosity of our donors.

We are therefore grateful to our donors for the huge sacrifice that you have made during these difficult times and for the continued support you have always made in creating a lasting change in the lives of orphans and vulnerable children. Thank you, for without your generous support we could not go this far.  We hope and pray for your continued support so that we can retain in school as many children as possible.

Thank you
