Girls attending Vocational School

These two girls are now attending a vocational school in Kampala thanks to a couple of recent sponsors.

For one reason or another, both these girls have not been able to get the education that many of their peers have received. They have fallen behind but desperately want to receive an education to better their chances of earning a living, providing a sustainable income for themselves and their families.

Because of their age (15 & 18), they have opted to go to a vocational school, rather than sitting classes with pupils much younger than themselves. They both have chosen hairdressing as the skill they will focus on during the two years their course last for, after that they will be prepared to either start up a small business of their own or join a number of businesses around Kampala.

We are so thankful for your support and can't wait to see how these girls develop now that they are back in education.

Day 5 - CLC Dance off

Every 3 months, Crane Network get all the Creative Learning Centres together, to showcase their talents in different areas; last time it was sports, this time it was dance and song. Each CLC had to prepare 4 performances, a song, dance, skit and poem, with the over arching theme being, 'children's rights to education'.

We work with the families of these girls, providing the girls further education once they have left the CLC, as well as supporting the parents/carers towards earning a sustainable income. 

These girls had been practicing, in between their studies, for a month before the event, so it was great to see their final performances on the day. There were a team of judges watching and scoring every performance, with prizes available for the top three schools. The girls were so pleased that their hard work had paid off, finishing the competition in 2nd place. 

If you feel like you are able to sponsor one of the girls into school then please fill out the form below, or for more information you can go to our sponsor a child page.
