education programs

In 2017, the primary school completion rate in Uganda stood at 51% while the secondary school completion rate was 25.6%. Over 714,000 children of primary school age were not attending school.
Total enrolment at tertiary level following on from completion of secondary school stood at 5% (source: UNESCO Institute).
Education in Uganda is available in both government and privately operated schools, however the financial cost of school fees (in private schools), scholastic materials, uniforms and meals can result in education being inaccessible for children within families who are living in challenging circumstances. Without an access to an income, parents/guardians are most often unable to maintain their child's education.

How Rena Community Development Association is supporting access to formal education

- Through its child sponsorship programme, children are financially supported by international donors to attend primary, secondary and third level education in order to attain the highest level of education available to them.
- Through our "unabridged school" methodology, Rena Community Development Association is supporting partner schools in some Districts, through:
The provision of teacher training for improved teaching methods for children living with disabilities.
Improving the physical environments of schools in order to make classrooms more conducive for learning for children living with disabilities.
Creating school vegetable plots in order to sow and harvest nutritious foods that the school can use to provide meals to school children living with disabilities and staff.
Working with school children's parents/guardians using our "Supportable Incomes” prototypical in order to support them to establish an income generating activity which can assist them to provide shelter, food and clothing for their families and ensure their children remain in education.
