by KUZA Program

Summary

This project will make it possible for Ice, Rebecca, and Joel to finish high school and attend university in Uganda. These determined and capable students are highly recommended because of their proven academic achievement and strong leadership potential. However, without outside help, completing higher education is impossible because of the high cost of tuition. Investing in the education of these students will transform their lives and benefit the entire community.

Challenge

Higher education in Uganda is critically important to break the cycle of poverty. There is little public funding for secondary and university schooling. Families are responsible to pay for higher education and higher education is often only available for those who already have access to money and influence. Without the means to pay for school, economically disadvantaged students like Ice, Rebecca, and Joel are unable to access higher education and lift themselves out of poverty.

Solution

Support of this project will pay for tuition, books, housing, and other basic needs so that Ice, Rebecca, and Joel can attend one of the best high schools in Kampala, Uganda. They will be participating in KUZA's leadership retreats and have access to influential mentors and career training. KUZA's holistic leadership program will ensure these students have all the resources they need to succeed in school and continue their pursuit of higher education.

Long-Term Impact

Accessing a quality education will make it possible for Ice, Rebecca, and Joel to break the cycle of poverty in their lives. They will gain the necessary skills to achieve viable employment or even start their own businesses. The lives of these students will change drastically through education. Upon completing university, these leaders will invest in their families and communities, and in the nation of Uganda.
