Strengthening the community by involving the local population

Thanks to our projects, more families can afford to send their children to school. This starts with the fact that the parents can work while their child attends school. As a result, the family has more income and can use it to buy food and clothes. Ideally, the family will be able to send more children to school thanks to the higher income.

Read the case study about our scholarship programme in Uganda.

In his study on the Kids of Africa scholarship programme, Valentin Varnholt shows the importance of education in Africa.

An analysis of almost one thousand scholarships for Ugandan pupils, which were awarded after the two-year school closures in Uganda, poses the question of whether the scholarships have a lasting effect.

Varnholt’s work confirms the considerable personal and social benefits that the unexpected scholarships have brought to the recipients, their families and their schools.

    20 years old

    “When I finish school, I want to give something back to Ugandan society. This scholarship is a privilege, but also a responsibility. I want to dedicate my work to God and my country.”

  • Akankwatsa Mary Praise
    11 years old

    “My mum used to sell our cows or our property to pay my school fees, but now she has enough money for my siblings again. I no longer feel guilty for making my mum’s life difficult.”

  • Ainemukama Joseph
    24 years old

    “I’m no longer the hopeless person who stayed on the floor for four years. I’m now a student with a vision for my future.”
