Schools in Uganda
Uganda had three different standards of schools—First Class, Second Class, and Third Class. As expected the quality and cost of the schools varies greatly, depending on the class. Many of our children are in Third Class schools, but the goal is to get as many of them as possible into Second Class schools.
The Role Of Education
The role of education is particularly important, especially in Uganda. The Decade for the Eradication of Poverty has confirmed that education assists children to break the cycle of ignorance and poverty, to find their passion, discover their voices, gain self-confidence, and realize their place in the world. Education replaces an empty mind with an open one and prepares an individual for an adult life. At Nakusi Generous Society our primary objective is to secure a formal education for all of our vulnerable children.
Evaluation And Monitoring Program
Nakusi Generous Society will always have a well-planned strategy of involvement. The Nakusi Generous Society staff will make frequent school visits, for the purposes of monitoring and evaluating children's class performance, their conduct, participation in extracurricular activities, and listening to assessments by the class teachers. In both primary and secondary schools each academic term is three to four months long. An academic year consists of three terms. Classes run from Monday to Friday, although some students attend on Saturdays as well
Sponsor A Child
To sponsor a child, each school requires the following items be paid: • School fees, scholastic materials, meals, and extra lessons are paid three times a year, prior to the beginning of each term.
• School uniform costs and educational trip fees are paid twice yearly. • Some schools are not within walking distance from Nakusi Generous Society and a student incurs transportation fees, paid along with tuition.
