Education means a job opportunity that equals a more dignified life!
KUMWENYA ECO-SCHOOL: Eco-School in Kimya (nursery and primary)
Kumwenya was inaugurated as an eco-school in February 2015 and it is a 100% Kelele Africa project. We are working for quality education with well-trained teachers. All our students are sponsored to be able to cover their schooling, school materials, lunch and health insurance.
RUIGO ACADEMY: Nursery And Primary School in Kasenda
Ruigo Academy is the school where we made the first summer camp in 2011 and the “culprit” that Kelele Africa is working in Kasenda since then. Ruigo students were the first children with whom we shared experiences and who showed us the educational problems that exist in rural areas. In 2013 we started with the scholarship program, committing ourselves to always having 20% of its students sponsored to help, on the one hand, the most needy children and to ensure, on the other hand, that the school is able to pay the salaries of half of its faculty.
SECONDARY SCHOOL IN FORT PORTAL
More than half the population in Uganda is under the age of 18, but only one-fourth are in secondary school. The problem is that there is a big shortage of high schools in rural areas. This situation forces students to go to boarding schools, which makes secondary education more expensive and difficult for most families to access. Thanks to the sponsorship program, we can help students of several schools in Kasenda and Kimya, who have finished primary with good grades, to continue on to higher education in secondary schools in Fort Portal.
VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTRES
Vocational training in Uganda is a very valid option, especially for students who do not finish Primary with brilliant results, but also for those who chose to learn a practical trade with easy access to the labor market. Students who finish Primary School can enroll in one year courses, while those who finish Secondary can do a two year course to obtain a certificate.
