Charity information

Imara-uganda Education Fund

The charity is supporting the education of children and young people who have shown a significant willingness to work hard at school and gain a high level of academic achievement against a background of being disadvantaged. Most of our scholars have lost one parent or both as a result of rebel activity, sickness or poverty. We have provided extra resources and facilities including a library and IT room in a school attended by our youngest scholars.

Founded 2011

    c. Children of single parent families;
    d. "returnees" - children who were abducted by the LRA rebels but have returned to their families or communities;
    e. Girl children in families where, because of poverty, only boys are educated
    f. Children of families, including those of clergy, where the level of income is not sufficient to enable education to be provided;
