One of the greatest challenges is within the education sector. The rate of finishing school is very low due to extreme poverty, family demands for youth to work, early marriages, and early pregnancy.
Given the economic realities of rural life in Northern Uganda, our vision is to transform the life of vulnerable children by providing educational opportunities and job-skills training in our bakery. Our programs target individuals both in and out of school with a focus on teenage mothers and orphans, who have little to no resources. By providing a solid education foundation coupled with marketable skills, youth are empowered to be self-sufficient thereby lifting themselves out of poverty. We aim to:· Provide full education scholarships including tuition, books, meals, uniforms, supplies and room and board.· Empower teen mothers with employment and marketable job skills.· Expose young people to positive role models for mentorship and moral support· Provide tools and resources to help students navigate the challenges of life
