The New School Year is Starting with Great News

In 2014 Ugandakids started the first scholarships for former UgandaKids pupils. The completion of primary school is not the final education therefore a scholarship system has been developed to enable pupils to continue their education.

Secondary school takes six years in Uganda. After four years the O-Levels take place and after another two years the A-Levels can be completed, enabling pupils to go onto University.

At the end of 2017 five UgandKids scholarship holders completed their O-Levels. One fellow had to leave the program due to weak results. Four girls showed that they could maintain or even improve their primary school results and were amongst the best of their year with grade 2 results.

Therefore UgandaKids is keeping the promise in supporting the pupils for another two years until A-Level.

This encourages the younger pupils at UgandaKids to follow in their footsteps. In order for them to show their motivation the new school year has just started on 5th of February.
