Kids for Africa Sports Academy Uganda believes that the power of sports in a child’s life can make a lasting impact, and often quality education is the only thing that can lift a child out of the poverty circles.
Education is a lifeline to children in emerging countries especially in Uganda, a nation in which two thirds of the population does not finish primary education. Kids for Africa is committed to investing in the education of the children we serve and aspire to become leaders of tomorrow. For the increasing number of vulnerable and homeless children in our communities, a total number of 6 children have been given a place to live with Marvin of which two stay with him and the four with Raymond at the office space. Therefore we devote countless hours inspiring, training, caring and preparing them for their future.
However an amount 3,360,000shs has been invested in their education fees and feeding. We therefore take this opportunity to acknowledge and praisely thank Mr. Tom for the big heart that has been able to support us with monthly donations. We feel actually blessed to have you and your efforts have enriched many hearts at kids for Africa, and now a total number of 51 children both girls and boys have achieved free educational scholarships out of there hard working efforts through the games and academics. An internet connection and WIFI has been established at the offices of the organization and now we have access to the internet.
Therefore 30th November 2016, we have received all children back from school and holiday training clinic sparked off on the last weekend of 26th November 2016 and so far a total number of 57 children turned up for the holiday training. Therefore through the continued efforts through our work, this shall not mask the fact that we don’t experience challenges and these include: inadequate training facilities and equipment’s, inadequate funds to sponsor the homeless children with school fees and feeding costs, no allowances for our volunteers to keep them motivated with our work, limited funds to help distribute hygiene kits to the girls in the project among others.
Therefore we say big thank you for the great support and continued efforts towards kids for Africa sports academy Uganda and please we request you to keep the big heart and the love for Uganda.
