YOUTH WITH A VISION NEED YOUR HELP
The global COVID-19 crisis has dramatically and rapidly changed the lives of everyone, hitting hardest the already vulnerable children and youth at Masaka region in Uganda. The pandemic took a toll on our resources and affected our revenue.
We are fundraising with a target of raising £7,000 ($9133.95) (£7723.60) (UGX: 33,762,115.67) for;
Constructing one six stances disabled access toilets and 2 Classrooms, to support quality and affordable education for the children that Youth With A Vision supports, and other 700 vulnerable children at our partner schools – ST. Catherine Nursery and Primary School Kisaalizi in Kyotera District, Aunt Sarah Junior School in Rakai District, and Safe Care Primary School in Wakiso, Uganda.
Watch this video which explains the current situation.
There is no uniform fee for tuition that Schools in Uganda charge. Each school charges differently and students from less privileged backgrounds can’t access most of the available schools due to high costs. Children that Youth With A Vision support, charge affordable fees but lack enough classrooms. The lack of enough classrooms affects the learning of the students. Since these schools charge small amounts of money for tuition, it is always hard for them to construct proper and enough classrooms.
It is for this reason that we are trying to raise funds to help the schools that we partner with have enough classrooms for all less privileged children in the area to have access to quality and affordable education from a conducive environment.
When we help to construct classrooms and a disabled accessible toilet for these partners schools, It will help reduce the amount of tuition these schools charge per student. And this will attract less privileged children to attend school and acquire education.
The young people who have been helped, and those that are being helped by Youth With A Vision, together with the other community members will make bricks for the construction work, and also help with porter work on the site. One of the youths skilled in roofing works has offered to do the roofing for the classrooms and toilet for half the total cost. All these developments mean that we are now looking for funds for cement, sand, iron sheets, wood, doors, windows, nails, building labour, and half costs for roofing labour.

A donation of £1.5 ($ 2) (€1.65) will provide 1 piece of wood for roofing (we need 100)

About St Catherine
St Catherine is a nursery and primary school and was established in 2008 with the aim of extending the quality and affordable education to less privileged and orphan children within Kisaalizi village that were greatly affected and some infected by HIV/AIDS.
St Catherine is the only School in the Area that provides quality and affordable education and before its establishment children had to walk long distances between 10-12 kilometers daily in order to access other available schools. This resulted in high rates of school dropouts.
In partnership with Youth With A Vision, the school enrolls both girls and boys from less privileged communities. And we focus on providing them with quality and affordable education, as well as developing their talents as a way of promoting love, friendship, togetherness, and happiness among children in the community.
The school lacks enough and standard classroom to accommodate the increasing number of children.
These are the school needs, please donate and enable us to build St. Catherine.
