Sponsor a Child
More than half of the 36 million people of Uganda are under the age of 15, more than 15 percent of school-aged children do not attend and those who so desperately need support for extra costs that include school uniform, books, shoes, lunch fees, pens, and pencils to remain in school. Every child has a right to education however, given their parents have an average income of $1 per day, vulnerable children are likely to remain in the cycle of poverty. ACR will expand education initiatives so that more vulnerable children can attend and remain in school. The project will support children in their educational needs and scholastic materials.
Education is the long-term solution to breaking the cycle of poverty. The supported children will have a brighter future and be able to change their communities once they are grown up.
