Funding education fees and career programmes for children in Uganda 

How can you help?

INTO Giving is supporting Ugandan schoolchildren with a $9,250 (UK £7,000) donation towards scholarships and a career readiness program. All of the children and young people helped are members of the Acholi tribe, victims of a two decade-long war that has many children orphaned.

INTO Giving’s grant will be allocated towards two programs helping children and young people:

Scholarships - for seven primary schoolchildren, six secondary school students, and two students who are in university/ technical schooling. Of these fifteen children, five are girls and ten are boys.

INTO Giving – you included – are helping pay tuition fees and provide school supplies and school uniforms.

Career readiness workshops – for schoolchildren at twenty-one schools and who are from low-income families. Launching in 2018, this programme will reach out to 1,560 children, 7-18-years-old to help them advance their schooling towards vocational or post-secondary education.

 

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT

Over the course of the two-decades war, atrocity after atrocity were committed against the civilian population such as abductions, mutilations, torture, sexual violence, and killings. It is estimated that over 20,000 children were abducted into the ranks as child soldiers, and over 1.6 million have been forced to flee from their homes.

Rebuilding communities in the wake of the conflict, in the bleak wake of the war, will take time and perseverance. Your support is helping rebuild communities and the lives of Acholi people who suffered in the war (and whose families still suffer today).
