UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) has reported that Uganda has the largest number of school dropouts in the region. According to the Uganda government, half of pupils enrolled in primary one will dropout before completing primary seven.
It is important to note that the highest number of school dropout rates is among females than males in primary schools. This has been attributed to early pregnancies, absence of interest, household chores, early marriages and lack of tuition and school materials such as exercise books and pencils.
However, the Ministry of Education in Uganda has reported that the school dropout rates are lower in secondary schools than in primary schools. This highlights the need for interventions that focus on tackling the issue of elevated rates of primary school dropouts in Uganda.
GEOF has undertaken projects that involve distribution of scholastic materials and providing school fees bursaries to enable school going children to remain in school there are plans to carry out these projects in other regions of the country by setting up other schools for orphans
Support the project and contribute to the efforts towards school outreach.
