Vision for the Future
In Uganda, where the young adult unemployment rate is 64%, Kamukama Foundation is committed to expanding our outreach to support the educational needs of more children.
Looking forward, we will broaden our vision to encompass not only educational support, but also the spiritual, emotional and physical well being of nursery, primary, secondary and vocational students. By taking a more holistic approach, we hope to spark excitement and mold these children into well rounded adults, equipped with the tools necessary to tackle their futures with great success.
Due to lack of government subsidized education, families face enormous challenges to educate their children.
- Over half of the people in Uganda struggle to survive on less than $1.25 a day
- 25% of children in rural Uganda receive no education
- 3 out of 4 children who start primary school never complete 5th grade
- For every 100 girls in Uganda starting primary school, only 6 ever complete the secondary level
