We provide free intermediate education in our catch-up classes for children aged 4-15 in Katanga, whose parents can’t afford to send them to school. Our aim is to get these children, with mostly no previous formal education, to a standard where they are able to pass an entrance exam in a mainstream school. We then find people to partner with us in Sponsoring a Child to these mainstream schools, for just £20 per month.
As well as sponsoring children into school we also have a scholarship program for those wanting to attend a vocational training school, this is mainly for individuals aged 15-25.

The goal of the Livelihoods programme is to support individuals in Uganda in gaining the skills they require to develop their chosen career, helping them to earn a self-sufficient income, supporting them and their family. We offer vocational training in a number of different skills, including tailoring & hairdressing, facilitate an apprenticeship program, as well as give loans or income generating grants to start up or develop existing businesses.
We aim to improve the health and well-being of those living in Uganda, through education, prevention and, where necessary, treatment. We recognise that although providing education and livelihoods opportunities are crucial for developing life circumstances, the state of an individual's health can prevent that development.
The main aspect of the health programme currently consists of Secunda, an experienced, registered nurse, coming in once a week, to offer guidance, support and a small amount of treatment. The guidance is based on assessing symptoms an individual is expressing and either referring them onto a clinic or hospital, or prescribing appropriate actions to be taken to improve their condition. Some health conditions, as well as treatment need additional emotional support, which we offer through counselling, run by Daisy, who, as well as our Education Officer, is a trained counsellor.
