A Keystone To Fight Poverty
Ungweru believes that providing education support to orphans and the vulnerable groups at all levels of education is one of the keys to fight poverty. However resources are a big limiting factor. We work towards mobilizing resources and introducing the needy students to other institutions offering scholarships.
Early Age Education
Ungweru facilitated the establishment of seven CBCCC (Community Based Child Care Centers) in the communities. These institutions aim at improving the welfare of orphans and vulnerable children and implement mechanisms for care of orphans mainly at family and community level.
Training for caregivers and management committees are performed to improve the quality of education and enhance committee support.
Ungweru has so far supported construction of two structures for CBCCC activities and we provided school supplies to enrich the children’s experiences.
ACCORDING TO NATIONAL STATISTICAL OFFICE (2008), THE TOTAL ENROLMENT IN PUBLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL WAS 39,8%
High Level Education
We also provide small-scale scholarships to vulnerable highschool students and soft loans for postsecondary school students in local communities. By offering these services, we hope to encourage students to pursue higher levels of education.
