  • Need

    Need

    The majority of orphan children are unable to afford a school education. Government grants are scarce and only cover basic fees. School books, examinations, uniforms, stationary amongst others are at the child's expense.

    Solution

    The Scholarship Fund will cover the cost of fees and extras for pupils to continue their secondary school education, giving them a better chance at finding paying work and a better standard of living.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To allow students to continue their secondary school education at Busiiro Secondary School

    Activities

    » Find donors who will pledge to fund a student for four years at Busiiro Secondary School.

    Children will graduate from Busiiro Secondary school with a high school certificate.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Graduates of Busiiro Secondary School will have a greater chance of enrolling in a Vocational Training Centre or even continue to University. They will be able to find better paying work and invest that income into their local communities.

    Risk

    The inability of finding donors who will pledge an earmarked sum for four years.
    Our scholarship Fund is open to anyone wishing to donate. For those who are unable to provide the annual school fee in one lump sum, the option of donating a monthly is available.

    Reporting

    Donors will receive end of term updates of the children's progress and an annual school report at the end of the academic year.
