About This Cause
When a child gets an education, their future becomes brighter and their dreams possible. When a child goes to school, they will not need to work in the quarry anymore and beg in the streets for food. An educated child will be able to find jobs in the future, where they can earn a sustainable income, helping to break the poverty cycle. Through becoming better educated, a child can be informed about their health, reducing the chances of child marriage, early pregnancies and HIV/AIDS contraction. Education is the key to fight poverty and disease.
We work with communities in the capital Kampala, and in the Jinja region, who live in extreme poverty after having fled conflict in Northern Uganda. Many children lost their parents and even those who still have them, cannot afford schooling. We use Education, Entrepreneurship and Local leadership to empower children and their families to rise above poverty. We created within our sponsorship program, long-term sponsorships for 315+ children in Uganda and we also run several community development initiatives including a Nutrition Project, Livelihood Project, Eye-Care and Health Project and our holistic After School Project and Small Business Training and Micro Loans Project for 65+ families.
