Access to education is particularly difficult for underprivileged population groups. In Uganda, these groups include children who grow up in poverty and in particular, the girls are heavily affected because of traditional gender roles. Numerous girls have to help out at home, but also early marriages or teenage pregnancies can stop them from attending school. The poorer the family is, the lower the children’s educational opportunities are. By supporting the parents with their educational costs, we make sure that there are fewer reasons for them to take their child out of school.
Your gifted Education Kit is going to send one child to school for a term. When you choose this gift, a child receives not only the required school uniform but we also pay for school fees, books, uniforms and a backpack.
