History Logs

Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Uganda

Location: Jinja

Total Budget: $30,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Covid19 pandemic in Uganda has contributed to children missing school for the past two years. The pandemic has affected the already poverty hit region with many household heads losing their jobs and can not afford basic needs. With schools opening in Early January, many children will not be in position to report back due to the high poverty levels in many families. A pupil in Buyende Primary school contributes 15,000UGX ($5) for school fees but still many families cannot afford to take their children to attend school.

With a grant contribution of $1000, we shall see 200 girls attend the first term in school. And with an additional $5 we shall be able to provide basic scholastic materials to the 200 girls that will enroll in primary Education.

As for secondary Education, a contribution of 175,000UGX ($50) per child per term, we can see girls completing secondary education.

Additional Club Contribution (Needed) - Add a contribution




Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation (waived)




Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
