According to UNICEF, there are an estimated 2.5 million orphans in Uganda.
The Kikulu Foundation, with our field partners, helps support education for children who have no other means to attend school. We have lived and worked on the ground with our children in Uganda, and have seen firsthand the determination and potential these children have to excel given the opportunity.
In Uganda, a quality education is not free. There are tuition fees for both primary and secondary school, expenses for school supplies and books, as well as the cost of school uniforms.
Lack of education for children is one of Uganda's greatest burdens and providing opportunities for schooling is one of its greatest needs.
So how do we help provide a solution? We start somewhere regardless if it's only one child at a time. With the KikuluCREW initiative, our goal is to provide 100 scholarships for children living in rural Uganda so they have the opportunity to receive a quality education.
Our hope is that each of you will take action to help do for one what you wish you could do for many.
