January Charity of the Month: Educate Uganda

When you donate to Educate Uganda, you are supporting a child’s chance at a better life. Educate Uganda is a non-profit organization focused on helping improve the educational opportunities for the impoverished children of Uganda. Your donation provides school fees for orphaned children and allows for improvements to their learning environments.

Educate Uganda focuses on children who have lost one or both of their parents. For the 2.7 million children who have been orphaned in Uganda, the ability to attend school is often difficult due to the compulsory school fees which must be paid. School fees are about $35 PER YEAR. However, in a country where the average wage earned is approximately $40 per month, the school fees are simply not affordable for most orphans. In fact, the extended families that orphan children rely on for care see school fees as a major factor in deciding whether to take in an additional child. By providing the annual school fees of $35, the orphans and their families will have hope for a better life.

Families in Uganda are not the only ones facing the problem of obtaining basic needs. The schools are also faced with the difficulty of providing a good learning environment for the students. In addition to assisting the orphaned students with their school fees, Educate Uganda is also working to improve the environment in which they learn and the materials the educators have available. Educate Uganda wants the schools we are working with to be a haven for the students.
