Challenge

While primary education is free in Uganda, many disadvantaged children are excluded because they lack basic school materials. The Stores of Mercy Uganda works with schools, to track the children's attendance at school and support their progress through psychosocial support, also providing nutrition & health care to the families.

Solution

We provide school uniforms, pens and exercise books to orphaned children; buy, raise and breed chicks and piglets and give young animals from the offspring to struggling families; sewing machines and training women widowed by AIDS to sew uniforms for children supported by the project and other tailoring work to generate income.

Long-Term Impact

These activities combined will provide a pathway for children to access education, and become confident and contributing members of their community. The investment in schemes for production and income generation, and the vocational skills of older adolescents and widows serves to foster well-being and community sustainability.
