Help 200 of Uganda's Most Vulnerable Children

by Redearth Education Vetted since 2017

Summary

This nursery project will prepare 3-5 year old children in rural Uganda for school, so that they do not fail or drop out into a life of poverty. Currently, 80% of rural children drop out of school by the age of 12 because they haven't learnt to read or write. We will train their teachers, in 6 government nurseries. This will empower them with the skills, tools and knowledge to ensure all children are equipped to succeed and progress throughout school.

Challenge

Every day, thousands of children fill the small, dark classrooms of rural Uganda, eager to learn about the world around them. These children dream of being accountants, lawyers, nurses, engineers and teachers. But sadly 80% of them will never even finish primary school. This is because they have not learnt to read, and are forced to drop out of school at the age of 12 for a life of poverty.

Solution

This project will target some of the youngest children in rural Uganda, where most families struggle on just 1 meal a day. We will bring the highest quality of education into their local, government pre-primary schools by training and supporting their teachers. This means that these vulnerable and disadvantaged children, aged 3-5, will learn how to identify letters and read basic letter sounds.

Long-Term Impact

When these children enter primary school at the age of 6, they will be equipped with skills & knowledge to learn to read and write. This will dramatically decrease their chances of dropping out. Each additional year of education a child receives increases her or his adult earnings by about 10%, helping them escape a life of poverty. The project will also enable nursery teachers to share their skills with others & prepare the next generation of educators for the challenges of the future classroom
