Unfortunately, Uganda does not have a free public education system at the secondary level. A year of high school costs roughly $500 per student each year. The kids have anywhere from 4-6 years to complete their education.
To offset the burgeoning costs of tuition, we started a sponsorship program in November, 2012 with great success. Sponsors are assigned a specific child and receive a kit that includes their photo, their backstory and answers to essay questions. Letters can be exchanged several times a year. The commitment is $40 a month.
A high school education is imperative to keep kids out of the cycle of poverty.
