It all begins with education. We're a global group that believes everyone deserves access to opportunity and quality education. We partner with schools, vocational training programs, and communities around the globe to ensure all women and children, regardless of where they live, have access to opportunity and quality education. We do this through student scholarships, teacher training support, equipping classrooms with needed materials and resources, and advocating for global education.
This is why The Kikulu Foundation was born. Access to education is the foundation for growth in all other areas of life. With an education, children in Uganda can do more than just survive; they can thrive.
About Uganda: Uganda is a country that abounds with rich culture but with great devastation. It's population is the youngest in the world, and all its young people share a tenacity to survive. Many have faced unimaginable hardships, losing their parents, experiencing war, famine, water droughts, disease, and aching poverty. Every day, thousands of children are out of school as they struggle with the most basic human needs.
Our approach is simple: we provide school scholarships for school fees, books, as well as materials and resources so students can receive a quality education. We then monitor their progress and visit the students, schools, and communities on an on-going basis. We also provide access to portable, solar-power lights for children to use for nighttime study so they can focus on their studies after dark with no access to electricity.
Our scholarships allow more students to be in school. Students are equipped with the supplies they need and we consistently see our students progress from primary to secondary school at a higher rate than other students.
Since 2012, we've provided more than 200 scholarships over 1000 educational resources and provided more than 500 students and teachers with the tools and resources for higher qualities of learning.
