This week all across Uganda children are going back to school to start a new school year. But education in Uganda isn't free, so sadly many children end up missing out on going to school. Kids Club Kampala runs a School Sponsorship Programme which is enabling children to go to school, receive an education and have a bright future, and you can read more about this here:
Yet even for the children who do attend or can afford to go to school, there are still obstacles to their education. Simple things such as exercise books, pens, pencils can be very costly for families to buy for their children, yet without these basic items many children are unable to study and participate fully in school.
Last week, we were able to give out vital donations of essential school materials including school exercise books, pens and pencils to all children at all of our KCK centres! These materials will make a huge difference to a child’s education, releasing the financial burden from their families and enabling them to realise their potential.
We would like to say a huge thank you to ATC Uganda for enabling this to take place through their very generous donation of school supplies for the children.
Thank you ATC Uganda!
