Literacy Advocacy events are held throughout the year including Literacy Competitions and Teacher Seminars for English Competency. Your support directly supports these events including textbooks and supplies for both Students and Teachers. Our next Teacher Seminar Intensive is slated for January 2019 when over 30 teachers from two remote villages will attend. Student scores on national exams have increased dramatically since we've been able to provide teacher training.

Thomas Charities has an ambitious plan to implement the collection of old edition primary and secondary school textbooks and student workbooks as the beginning of 3 lending libraries located in the vicinity of these public schools. Currently, there are no libraries in these areas and as you can see in the photos, the students learn without textbooks or workbooks. We collect books of all types including reference sets year-round. Please contact us at email@example.com for book donations and shipping containers.
We also accept donations of books (any kind), sewing supplies, school supplies, and medical supplies.
Please contact us below if you have any of those item to donate. Thank you!

Thomas Charities promotes literacy and education in the most neglected government schools in Uganda. We have begun a Stay in School Campaign currently targeting several public schools in northern Uganda. Pictured above are scenes from the public schools and the HIV/AIDS and hygiene education and Gospel presentation that Thomas Charities provided in past years.
