Located in a region impacted by recurrent conflicts during the last years, Kyaka II refugee camp in Uganda has seen passing by many children forced by life circumstances to leave their home countries and transit by the refugee camp during their journey towards a brighter future. Yet, in many cases, the stay had to be extended beyond expectations and therefore arised a critical need to keep Kyaka II children studying and sharing entrepreuneurial skills to increase their chances to leverage on their skills and become autonomnious in life.
In this context, few volunteers have put their forces together and launched a powerful initiative to build 4 schools in different locations within the Kyaka II refugee camp, offering education to children aged from 3 to 8, and entrepreneurship classes to youth’s aged ftom 15 to 35. Unfortunately, the lack of sufficient classrooms forces childrens to drop off school after the age of 9 and seek for education alternatives out of the refugee camp.
As part of Uimara’s mission to support resilient people and communities in developing countries we came up with a project proposal build around on 4 pillars being : qualitative education, practical experience, affordable cost and focus on employability).
