Children’s Education Program

Children’s education program focuses on basic reading and writing as well as arithmetic in English and local Ugandan local dialect for both girls and boys who live nearby with their families. The children are also fed two meals per day when the program is in session, which is important in this region of extreme poverty.

Our focus is directed to recruiting all children in school to enjoy their right to education to its fullness. Together with the support of stake-holders in the communities, we strive to have an informed young generation that sustainably value their lives, families and the whole environment as they grow. We hope to reach the capacity of 75% of the population of children not attending school doing so, by the end of the project cycle.
