Encouraging Education Project
It is extremely difficult for poor families in Uganda to afford to send their children to school and, as a result, many children miss out on a vital education. At Kids Club Kampala, we believe that education is a basic human right, is essential to breaking the cycle of poverty, and that all children deserve the chance to learn and have a bright future.
Our Encouraging Education Projects allow over 600 children who would otherwise have no access to education to have the opportunity to learn through taking part in informal education classes. These classes are taught by Ugandan teachers and run from Monday to Friday throughout the year in three different slum communities across Kampala. This not only helps children to gain a good education and acquire behavioural skills, but also gives children a safe place to go every day, away from the dangers of slum life. Children can also attend our Feeding Project each day after class.
Kids Club Kampala runs a School Sponsorship programme, where the neediest children in the communities are identified and given access to formal education and the opportunity to go to school. Our School Sponsorship programme aims to match children with Child Sponsors who pay their school fees, enabling a child to go get a good education and enhance their opportunities for the future. If you would like to help make a difference in a child’s life through giving them the gift of education, then we would love you to become a Child Sponsor with us. There are currently over 150 children being sponsored to go to school through this project.
