Education

     Across Uganda, 4 in 10 children aged 3-5 are enrolled in a pre-primary education program. This age is a critical time for children to develop a strong foundation, and many families do not have the luxury of owning colorful books and other educational games and resources that expand their child's reading, critical thinking, and creativity.

 

     Moreover, 50% of Ugandan children experienced the world's largest school shutdown during the Covid-19 pandemic, keeping them out of school for 22 months and putting them in increasingly vulnerable situations.

Economic Empowerment 

One of the greatest challenges people face in Uganda is unemployment. Widespread poverty is the result of economic hardship and people struggle to find adequate sources of income. This leads to problems in the family, health challenges, children not attending school, and idle youth resorting to illegal behaviors. Currently, we are in the process of launching a new learning center which will provide skills training to unemployed individuals, such as youth who have dropped out of traditional school and single mothers. Additionally, we have supported HIV+ individuals through our skills training and social support.

 

The new center will include the skills training workshop, a new library and other spaces to facilitate additional educational and artistic programs. By empowering just one individual with a skill and steady income, we are not only improving their lives, but changing the outcome of their future and their family's future.
