Situation

Because 35% of Ugandan primary aged children drop out of school before the opportunity to reach higher education, these are mainly girls. Most Ugandan young people either own land or have accesses to land. Amigos believe this is a great starting point for their future existence. Amigos is building skills into these young lives at Kira Farm Training Centre so that they will become self-reliant citizens as they return to their various communities, becoming the next generation of Mothers and Fathers. £30,000 is needed in 2010 to train 35 residential students from Masindi, Lira and Kitgum districts and 8 day students from the local Kira community.
