Because ’Knowledge is Power’ we believe it’s every child’s right to have an education. Education transforms and empowers and we believe it is key to breaking the communities current cycle of poverty. We support every child in ‘Born Like Others’ in gaining a primary and secondary education. Our desire is to make poverty and illiteracy in our community a thing of the past. We aim to nurture the potential of the orphans and destitute children of Uganda by offering them a brighter future.
We Provide school fees and supplies for over 50 children. During the school holidays, we have an educational program at our children’s home to help new children catch up with there schooling as well as gaining new skills.
As well as formal schooling we strongly believe in the knowledge and skills acquired outside formal education. We are always looking for people with positive skills and knowledge who can give their time and share something new with our children. What you might consider small or silly might just give one of these children the knowledge or self belief that will change their future. Our long term goal is to work with schools in the community as well as establishing our own schools.
