A sustainable approach to supporting schools and sponsoring young people in Uganda and Rwanda that achieves amazing results.Tell me More
Children with hearing problems have great difficulty getting an education in Uganda. Most are not able to attend nursery school and by the time they start state primary classes they have poor communication skills and are marginalised. Government primary schools have large classes, sometimes over 100 students, and children with hearing problems, given inadequate attention, soon fall further behind.
There are many children in Uganda who are deaf because of infections and side effects from the treatment of malaria.
Helping Uganda Schools is raising money to build the St Francis de Sales Nursery School for deaf children in Jinja, Uganda. We want to provide these children with the benefits of early years education, build self-esteem and help them learn a range of communication skills, including sign language.
