Education Support Services

Education plays the central role in escaping generational poverty. It has been estimated that for every year a child stays in school, their future earning potential increases by 10-20 percent. Unfortunately, many families in poverty consider education a luxury and even those who value it can find it difficult to afford.

While each area we serve has unique needs, Beacon of Hope Uganda encourages and sustains the academic progression of the children we support from early education programs through secondary school and beyond. Youth and children from poverty stricken backgrounds come to our office to receive educational support, such as:

Uniforms: clothing, backpacks and shoes
Supplies: textbooks, calculators, notebooks, pencils and pens
Financial support: school fees and transportation costs
Libraries: study areas and reading materials for all ages
Study aids: tutoring, educational workshops and special youth programs
Computer center: free Internet access, basic computing courses and tutoring services
Scholarships: vocational training, college and university assistance
Community literacy: books for classrooms and libraries, mobile libraries and reading tents.

Beacon of Hope Uganda believes that education is extremely important to improve the lives of orphans and children in need, this is the reason behind the establishment of various educational projects to support the needy children.

We support their education by providing schooling support, continuously discussing their progress with teachers. We also find responsible guardians to take them in while they attend school.
