Challenge

Poverty is persistent in Uganda. Youth are often being denied proper education. Most schools lack basic facilities, and teachers are often absent. Even those who make it through school often lack basic skills. Vocational training is an option, but often families don't have the money to pay for tuition, food, or government test fees. In Uganda many families earn less than a USD per day, making tuition impossible to afford. Many drop in the middle of the year, as they can't pay for the next term.

Solution

Vocational training is a powerful ladder for youth to climb out of poverty and have a future by, giving marketability and success in a hard economy, whether they become an electrician, carpenter, a construction worker, or a mechanic. The Comboni school has already trained over thousands of youths for decades in one of the country's poorest and remote area. Your contribution will help finance vulnerable people and subsidize talented youth to access the life changing opportunity.

Long-Term Impact

Youth passing out of the school would have received a good quality education, which would enable them to realize their full potential and become self-reliant. This education is the key to lifting them and their families out of the vicious cycle of poverty and to increase the strength of local economies further uplifting the people of Uganda.
