Education and Career Training in Uganda

$15.00

Education is one of the most dependable ways to lift communities out of poverty long-term, yet in rural Uganda, primary education is often financially out of reach.

Ugandan families are expected to contribute over 50% of the costs of primary education including school fees, books, school supplies and transportation.

Career training for older children is important, especially for girls, who can provide greater value earning an income rather than being sold as a bride.

Your contribution to this fund helps to ensure the future of a child in a country where nearly two-thirds of the population are under 18.

School Meals for One Month: $15 USD

Safe Transportation for One Month: $20 USD

School Fees for One Month: $30 USD

School Supplies for One Year: $50 USD

Training as a Tailor: $300 USD

Training as a Hairdresser: $350 USD

In Uganda, 41% of people live in poverty, and almost half of Uganda’s population is under the age of 15, representing one of the youngest populations in the world. Uganda also hosts the largest refugee population in Africa—more than one million refugees have fled their home countries to seek asylum in Uganda. Over the next decade, agricultural development will be a main priority to help improve outcomes for low-income families. Agriculture will also be an increasingly important industry for youth  and refugees to find viable opportunities to earn sustainable livelihoods for themselves.
