Summary

AAH's primary school in rural Uganda scores in the top 1% of schools nationwide, and has a 100% graduation rate (in a district that averages only 14%). The majority are girls, and orphans and disabled children also attend the school. Scholarships for secondary school are provided. Two health clinics serve over 20,000 a year. AAH assists local schools that are in terrible conditions. Funding is needed for girls mentoring, books, tutoring, and internships.

Challenge

We work in one of the poorest parts of Uganda, focusing on education. Without a good basic education, poor rural children have little chance of escaping a life of extreme poverty. Our students not only survive but are thriving! Female students need girls mentoring to stay in school, so girls mentoring is needed. Scholarships are needed for secondary school as well, as poor families cannot afford to send their kids. Nearby poor schools are also assisted, so more children can succeed.

Solution

Girls mentoring helps keep girls in school, which improves their futures. By providing top quality primary school, children can get into secondary school, and have a chance to succeed in life. This has a spread affect and helps their families and communities as well.

Long-Term Impact

Having various paths to success and well rounded education for young people in rural Uganda gives youth areal chance to succeed and to break the crushing cycle of extreme poverty, and to lift up their families and communities as well.
