Give Education to Ugandan Children
Help support a child pursue education in Uganda by providing for tuition needs and basic living expenses for a month. After decades of armed conflict and the tragedy of the AIDS pandemic in Uganda, the achievements of educated children give hope for the bright future of Uganda and its people.
Over half of Uganda's population is under 18 years of age - the majority of whom have been orphaned by AIDS, civil conflict, and/or extreme poverty. Due to a lack of government-subsidized education, extended families and orphanages face an enormous financial barrier to educating Uganda's children. Moreover, 35% of the estimated 22 million Ugandans cannot read and write. However, with a little assistance, these children can grow into adults who can support themselves and their families and be the stimulus for recovery in their troubled homeland.
