Like many urban slums schools in Uganda, couple schools in Kampala need the support of the public, private and NGO sectors. Many lack basic infrastructure including classrooms, student chairs and books. Other schools have a dilapidated infrastructure following many years of neglect and lack of adequate government funding.
Initiative under education program includes:
- Educational scholarship program for poor especially girl child, disabled, etc
- Psycho social and spiritual support and counseling program
- Feeding school children program
- Structured Vocational training and life skills program
Rafiki Social Vision is seeking partnerships to assist the marginalized and neglected in the areas of classroom construction, provision of textbooks and revision books, construction of school libraries, language improvement initiatives, rehabilitation of dilapidated classrooms and provision of food during periods of drought and famine.
Rafiki Social Vision also seek to create an Education Fund to assist children from needy families that are good performers in school but lacking financial support. In the long term, we also seek to support needy students to achieve their desired level of education and skill in technical training or tertiary education. The organization is particularly concerned with the lack of quality education support for the girl child both at the secondary and tertiary level.
Accelerating Social and access inclusion
Through ICT TRAINING to People with Disabilities, Refugees and vulnerable communities across Uganda.
As the technology becomes more integrated into daily life, social inclusion seems out of reach for Persons with disabilities, Refugees and vulnerable communities. While discrimination may play a role in the lack of consideration for persons with disabilities, so does lack of digital literacy.
People with disabilities, Refugees still face enormous stigma and ignorance. They are often an invisible population, whose worth is unknown to influencers and society at large. Most do not attend school, which limits their access to ICT that could lead to social and access inclusion.
