Vulnerable Children. Early Marriages. Witchcraft. Sexual Predators. Sex Slavery.
This is what children, mostly girls, face when leaving Primary School. Children rarely stay in school past the age of 12, including children sponsored in private Christian schools. Yet this is when girls and boys are the most vulnerable. Staying in school is one of the safest things a girl can do to protect herself and you can directly help. Boys are directionless, unskilled, and vulnerable to sexual predators. You can help keep these children in school past puberty. Primary School costs as little as $40 A YEAR!!
All Secondary Schools including government schools require tuition and fees.Thomas Charities fully supports several students in secondary schools within Uganda. The vast majority of children have no access to schools of any quality. Government (public) schools still require payment beyond the capability of the vast majority of families. With over 2.5 million orphans, the country is largely uneducated. Please consider sponsoring a child or two for secondary schools. Your donation will pay for tuition, room and boarding for a child to attend a secondary school including the purchase of their own textbooks which schools do not provide, personal care items, and general medical care your child may need. Secondary School costs on average $100/month.
You can have a direct impact on the life of a child and literally save a life.
Thomas Charities takes avid fiscal responsibility with all donations. We pay all school fees directly through the school's bank and our in-country staff makes regular visits to insure your child is taken care of properly.
Secondary Schools require upon admission many items such as a mattress, chair, bag of cement, pregnancy test kits, charcoal pan, jerry can, their own plate and utensils, all workbooks and school supplies, uniforms, other fees, etc. So just enrolling in school can cost upwards to $400 before starting.
You can be a part of changing someone's life forever.
