Welcome. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit created for the purpose of empowering the youth of northern Uganda by providing sustainable educational opportunities. Check back often to see updates from the ground in Gulu.
For 2014 we have increased our GLOBAL Scholar program from 15 to 40 students attending secondary school. The scholarships they receive will either supplement what the families are able to pay or will cover the entire tuition, uniform, and supply fee for students with no family or families experiencing deep poverty.
In the works for 2015 are some programs to enhance the education of students at the primary and secondary level. These include literacy and phonetics training (primary), school-based tutoring programs (secondary), and debate. In addition, we are currently in the planning stages of a pilot program to address the issue of Gender Based Violence both in schools and at home in Nwoya District. For this project, we are collaborating with Ciford and Anyim, two Ugandan based CBO’s.
With time, we are also hoping to begin a capital campaign to build a secondary school for Mother Teresa Primary School. This would allow students to have continuous education from nursery through high school.
