Raising An Empowered Generation
Did You Know?
Across Africa, girls still face huge challenges with getting a quality education with over 9.5 million girls within sub-Saharan Africa unable to acquire formal classroom education.
You can change one child's future Today!
Did you know that majority of the families in Sub-Saharan Africa live in rural areas? And did you know that between 40-50% of the 496 million children in Sub-Saharan Africa live below the Poverty line? Becasuse of poverty, these children have, been locked out of the one proven path out – a quality education.
Contrary to the free education we get in the US, the greatest barrier for these underprivileged children is the cost of school fees and scholastic materials. The associated cost of education has pushed over 33.8 million children in Subsaharan Africa out of School.
Together, We Are Creating A Better World - One Child At A Time
Let’s Rewrite Their Stories
Donate towards Scholastic Materials
Your Donation will be spent on procuring books, pens, school shoes, school bags, and other school requirements for rural underprivileged children under our care in Uganda
