Is after the crisis before the next crisis? Probably. Because while Uganda is planning a relaxation of the lockdowns, a wave of hardship affects countless families. Children are particularly hard hit. Students want to go back to school. But most families have lost jobs, income and savings.
Regular school scholarships and an extra pot for special needs are what helps most now.
Donate a scholarship
Because the way to school is the best way out of poverty!
And, secondly, because Kids of Africa can offer you the guarantee that every penny goes down well.
Kids of Africa has built four important schools for the local population in remote regions of Uganda. All schools have succeeded in giving the many young people in their region skills, a sense of belonging and a perspective. A total of almost 2,000 students attend these schools. Many parents and families are thus relieved. The society is strengthened. They have a sustainable impact and help familes help themselves.
So far, these schools have been able to provide lessons very successfully and even cover their costs. In addition, they have also been able to donate scholarships to those in need and also help parents and adults. This is what made them financially sustainable.
But with the lockdowns almost all private savings and reserves have been used up, jobs have been lost, wages have fallen and the inflation of food is eating away more than is available. That is why it is now important to distribute scholarships quickly, specifically and temporarily. To help as quickly as possible and to find a way back to “normality” just as quickly.
