Give the Gift of Education – Sponsor a Kasiisi Scholar.

Looking for a place for your end of year charitable donations that will make a REAL  difference?

Here’s why you should consider sponsoring a Kasiisi Project student for secondary school.

Nelson Mandela said that “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”. Giving the gift of education to a Ugandan child who would otherwise be unable to attend secondary school certainly changes their world!

Chair of the scholarship committee

In Uganda less that 30% of children even finish primary school and fewer than half of those attend secondary school, let alone college. The Kasiisi Project Scholarship Program was started to help redress this situation, and in the past 15 years we have enrolled over 120 pupils in our programs. We have 3 students in medical school, 4 university graduates, 3 undergraduates (1 at Harvard) and  one Masters Student. We have plumbers and nurses, lab technicians and agro-vets, teachers and electricians, caterers and beauticians. And over 90% have jobs.

Thanks to the hard work of the Kasiisi Scholarship Committee in Uganda who guide and care for our students and to the many generous sponsors who support our program it has been a wonderful success; one that has a far reaching impact on the welfare not only of our students, but of their extended families as well.

Happy Sponsor with her Student

But we cannot do it without you. The Kasiisi Project can  assists schools to graduate students well prepared for the post-primary academic world,  but it takes your support to get them to the next stage, to help them attend secondary school and beyond.

If you give the gift of education to one child you will help  others that you may never be aware of. Cultural expectations mean that your student will use her wages to educate younger members of the family and will have better educated and healthier children herself.
