Why is this School so Important?
In Uganda, more than a third of the inhabitants live below the poverty level.
Children are the primary victims of this deplorable economic situation.
Their families cannot ensure their health or their well-being, particularly in remote regions of the country.
Some children are sent to live in towns and cities as it is thought that they will be better off living in urban areas. Instead, they often end up living on the streets.
Astonishingly, 50% of the population in Uganda is under the age of 14 years of age.
With such a low age, it’s the world’s youngest country.
The average age of Ugandans is 50-60 years old.
Other rights are neglected because of poverty. Access to education, for example, is a privilege from which only the most fortunate children benefit.
This school will provide these children a quality education and also training in the Bible.
It will be so rewarding to see lives improved not only in the natural but in the things of God.
