I am in primary 6 in Akworo primary school in Kitgum district. I am the first born in my family of four girls. I am 11 years old and am intelligent and I want to study further when help is found form me. My parents are farmers who returned recently from Amida Internal Peoples Displaced camps and are struggling to resettle in our ancestral land which is under constant wrangling by neighbours. I want to set a good example for my younger sisters by being in school studying andI want to set a good example for my younger sisters by being in school studying and not be misled into early marriage and defilement.
The School Year
While Universities have two semesters on average of five months each per year, most Universities have admissions/commencement of their programs in July/August. Others have two separate admissions per year. Government and private Universities operate independently and have separate admissions time frames. The specifics would be different.
In our case, we would look at an average budgetary provision of US $ 260 per child/student times three terms per year, TOTALING US $ 780 per student year. This averages out to $65.00 a month to sponsor a child for the full school year.
To sponsor a child or for a monthly or one-time donation, please visit our fundaiser sites listed below or use the PayPal link.
Thank you for caring!
