Situation

In rural Uganda, 20% of people are living in extreme poverty, surviving on less than £1 a day. This results in a lack of education & opportunity for the youth. Children in Uganda have less than 6 years total schooling, causing ill-health, inequality and lack of options, allowing poverty to persist. Poverty, gender bias, and teenage marriage and/or pregnancy are factors that all contribute to just 40% of girls attending primary school, and only 15% completing their secondary education.

Solution

Kathy’s Kindergarten gives young children the best possible start in life through a first-class early education, helping to ensure they stay in education, improving future poverty rates. We provide children with a strong foundation for future learning and the opportunity to increase the average years total schooling, improving economic prospects and developing a more stable, and sustainable future for their communities.
