Despite the large poverty in Uganda, it has also one of the largest rates stressing the HIV/AIDS infection. As a consequence, some children lost their parents at a young age. Due to this loss, it is even harder for these children to escape poverty and acquire education. For this reason it is essential that these children go to school and ultimately enabling them to create a better future.
By means of this project, Students for Children support 20 children by financing school materials, such as books, notebooks, and writing utensil. The children follow their classes at the Kabukye Senior Secondary School. Actually, these students need to pay a tuition fee, but the Green Butterfly Project arranged that the children do not have to pay any school fees.
The children supported by this project have been able to complete primary school by means of other sponsors. The goal is to provide them the opportunity to a great future after they have graduated from secondary school. The support of Students for Children is specifically aimed at helping orphans who are being raised by their grandparents. Besides the educative aspect, the children get information about hygiene and food. Students for Children supports this integral approach, as improving the diverse aspects of the lives of these children is the most sustainable way to improve their future perspective.
