The Challenge:

The Pader region of Northern Uganda has suffered horribly through two decades of civil war. Thousands of children were abducted, and nearly 2 million people displaced to camps (IDP’s). Now that there is peace in the region, the people of Pader are working diligently to rebuild their lives.

Each day, in a corner of the Pader region, 250 girls gather to learn in three old classrooms and several overcrowded dormitories. Their passion to learn is abundant; their physical resources scarce.

The Response:

The World Heritage Foundation is helping to provide the funds needed to build a high quality girls’ school. Located strategically in an area accessible from three separate IDP camps, the school will have eight furnished classrooms, a science laboratory, a library, dormitory, kitchen and dining area.

Every girl deserves a future for herself and community. Every girl deserves the opportunity to become a confident and educated young woman. Given the opportunity, these young women will not only improve their lives, they will change the social and economic landscape of their nation.

Join us in providing this opportunity. Your donation to this project will create hope and change the lives of youth in Northern Uganda.
