Education is key to changing the next generation
In any third world country, change is more penetrable with children. They're receptive and eager to learn. More then 50% of the children we encounter cannot afford to pay school fees. You'll find they roam the streets or help their families with gardening.
In the village of Bugira, where we're located, there is NO SCHOOL. We have hundreds of children waiting and hoping to go to school. We've started a very basic education program with about 100-120 children, varying in ages 2-15 years, outside under a tarp. No matter what the weather brings, these wonderful and energetic souls show up.
Our hope and plan is to build a school here in the village in 2020. It'll cost us an estimate of $100-$120,000 usd. Because we are located so far up in the mountains, getting materials is costly. Education is necessary for change to happen, no matter the cost or obstacles.
We also have a Sponsor Program in a few other villages. As of now we have 60 children that are sponsored for 2019.
Children, ages 2-13, can be sponsored to go to school for $20-$25/month or $300-$350/yr.
Children ages 14-18, can be sponsored to go to school for $55-$60/month or $650-$700/yr.
If you want to get involved you can donate or come out here and help us teach.
