Education Program (EP)

Despite the introduction of Universal Primary and Secondary Education (UPE, USE) by the government to mitigate the problem of access to education, new challenges have developed that affect the education sector in Uganda. These challenges include; poor facilities to accommodate the large number of pupils enrolling in UPE; inequalities of education attainment between boys and girls; assumed poor quality of education services under UPE; and the large number of orphans affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

In addition, children who enroll into USE still need to make payments for scholastic materials in order to continue with their education. There have been arguments that these challenges are due to lack of financial and material support since children have requirements that are necessary for them to receive the required education levels to help them be responsible citizens in Uganda. It is believed that since poor families cannot afford to purchase these items and pay for hidden costs of education, they are unable to send their children to school. Give the excess has developed this project to give a helping hand to poor families that have failed to educate their children by providing financial assistance and material support so that the literacy levels in Uganda can rise and in turn poverty will be alleviated.

Aim

The aim is to increase the affordability and accessibility of education among families living in impoverished homes across Uganda.

Expected Outcomes are:

  • Improved school performance
  • Increased enrolment in institutions of higher learning
  • Increased conversions into Christianity
  • Improved chances in acquiring employment opportunities
  • Improved personal hygiene and sanitation

Support the program and contribute to the efforts towards educating a child.
