Only 23% of boys and 19% of girls have the opportunity to finish secondary school in Uganda.

 

 

A huge *thank you* to everyone who has made it possible for our 113 children to go to school.

Despite the challenges they face everyday, 14 of our children have graduated to Secondary School this year taking the total number of children in Senior School to 33.

They worked hard to get there and we’re incredibly proud of them.

Only 23% of boys and 19% of girls have the opportunity to finish secondary school in Uganda.

The families we work with live on less than 1,800 ugx a day (that’s less than 0.40p).

Without a helping hand from a friend there is no hope of them attending school.

We’re determined to ensure the children we work with get the opportunity to complete the education that is vital to their future.

It costs £25 a month to support one child through school, this will pay for their school fees, uniform, shoes, books and pens and equipment.

Please consider setting up a regular gift to help send a child school. It takes just a few minutes to set up a gift that will have a huge impact. Sign up here.
