We are thrilled to announce that we have helped 518 girls and women to date. With our support they have been able to escape the oppressive traditions that would have forced them into circumcision and premature marriage.
For the academic year 2020/2021 we had 41 girls enrolled in school. Of those, four were in high school and four were in college. The college girls have resumed school and we are hopeful they will graduate in April or December. Of the girls in high school, one girl's scores allowed her to advance to the two-year pre-college courses. The other three students have joined technical schools.
School in Uganda have been closed for two years due to Covid-19. We hope they will reopen in January 2022 for all our other students to resume school.
