OUR PROGRAMS


1. Early Childhood EDUCATION (ECD)

The difference of ECD to refugee children it is the uniqueness of the approach and innovation.
Initially, educational institutions in rural refugee camps employs teachers from out of the refugee communities to educate refugee children, however, a teacher who is not a refugee cannot communicate with a refugee child of 3 to 6 years due to language differences. The majority of the refugees are from DRC, a country that have a different education system and in French who are now in Uganda, where education system is in English. Therefore, refugee children of 3 to 6 they only understand mother languages and some French from their parents.

However, in addition to the training, there should be access to capital and funds to start a business and practice the entrepreneurial skills. Therefore, the training without access to capital is equal to zero results.
Always thousands of University students graduates in Uganda in many other Universities in Africa, and the lowest percentage of them quickly gets jobs and the majority remains Jobless.
