  • Need


    Children living in the South of Uganda struggle to access and complete their primary education. According to the World Bank only 56% of boys and 54% of girls completed that primary education in 2011. Demand for free education outstrips the availability of places at the free government schools.

    In addition, children and young people are unable to access a doctor or nurse because Lack of availability and because they lack the resource to pay for the consultation and treatment.


    We will be supporting children and young with fees and resourse to access an education. At the same time we will be working with the schools to improve the quality via teacher traning, development of school policies and procedures in the areas of child protection and eqipping the school with valuable teaching materials.

    In addition we will fund a school nurse to meet with the children and young people enabling children to access health care and health infrmation when needed.

  • Impact


    Our project will raise children attendence and attainment. The project will also improve health outcomes for children. Rights International has developed a performance management system that tracks the use of services (the outputs) and the difference it makes to a child or community (the outcomes). Progress will be tracked across each of the two work areas and allow for participation of beneficiaries in the monitoring and evaluation of our work.


    The major challenge we envisage is that there will be more demand for the service than we may initially have the capacity to support. To deal with this we have agreed criteria in place for who will be able to access support from the project, with the emphasis being on the most vulnerable.


    The funders will recieve written updates being provided on a quarterly basis outlining progress against the objectives and key performance measures.
