The St. Kizito Offers a Future of Hope and Promise to Many – Part 3 of 4

Education Empowers All Students – Especially Girls

August 18, 2017 03:50pm

ne important objective of the St. Kizito Foundation is to support the female child by giving her access to a good education to help empower her and make sure she has a secure future. A nation with educated women is a nation that will thrive!

Uganda, being a developing nation, particularly needs to ensure that the female child is not left behind. At the beginning of each term I make visits to the schools where St. Kizito students are being educated. I make sure that all students, and especially female students, are safe and have everything needed to focus on their studies. As I visit each school I check on our students to learn how they are doing in their studies and health wise as well as encourage them to work hard to achieve the best grades.

One bright young girl, pictured her, is Mutaganda Patience who is one our students studying at Mukono Junior.  Patience aspires to become a future physician.  She desires to help in medical science and hopes to make new discoveries that will rid the world of diseases or reduce their impact.  She hopes to help people live longer, healthier lives.  These are noble and wonderful goals!  Let us pray for her that she will be able to achieve these goals.

Thank You for Visiting St. Kizito Foundation

Your Generous Contribution Will Help Educate Students in Uganda
Together We Can Make It!

St. Kizito Foundation supports approximately 300 students in their education and life.  We have students at all levels of study, although our primary focus is to provide our participants with sufficient and appropriate education so that they may earn a living and have a successful life. 

Our students are in schools of their choice, based on school and government standards of acceptance.  Students are assisted by St. Kizito counselors and staff in determining the best placement.   

On these pages, we hope to give you a glimpse of the treasure we believe our participants to be.  Enjoy, and feel free to offer communication or words of wisdom that we can forward to Uganda!
