Education in Uganda is very difficult to achieve.Private school is available, but extremely expensive.
There is very little choice for public education. In the remote villages, school attendance is between 21% and 38%.
The quest of Tower of Hope is to bring the schools to the church grounds of the more remote areas to make school
accessible for everyone regardless of their ability to pay 23% of all females age 6 and older, 12% of males have never attended school. Without an education giving you the knowledge required to achieve a high enough wage to support a family and afford to send your children to school is not within grasp of most in the remote villagers and
so a vicious cyle continues.
At Tower of Hope International Ministries we believe that this can change if people care enough to give them that hope and support to break this cycle. We are doing this, one village at a time.
Need For Healthcare Education in Uganda
Consistently Available Healthcare Education is critically needed in Uganda. In the remote villages they may only have access to a healthcare professional once a year in a mobile clinic such as the one pictured to the right when a mission team comes to their village to distribute much anticipated medications. This may very likely be their only chance that year to get answers to questions that they do not even know how to ask.
So many of their ailments would be prevented by access to basic health care & education.Tower of Hope does bring a mission team of healthcare professionals, pastors, and people who just want to help each year but this is not enough. We have a project entitled Village Care Centers to meet the needs year round and self-sustainable. Please contact at us firstname.lastname@example.org or 856.278.1900 if you wish to help make treatment available in these villages on a regular basis on a daily basis a reality.
ADULT EDUCATION & CLEAN WATER
Both are keys to a families sustainable financial independence. Life skills training in the areas of income producing trades such as farming and business management are essential.
38.9% of the people do not have clean drinking water. Readily available & clean water sources will help stop disease, and make farming possible where it currently not an option.
