Purpose

Akebulan is responding to overwhelming needs of providing quality education and academic excellence to orphans and most disadvantage children in the community through providing scholastic materials and schools fees to orphans and disadvantaged children,

Through construction of well facilitated Nursery School, Primary School, High school, Vocational Technical and University schooling, Akebulan will provide quality education to orphans, most disadvantage children and private sponsored children while meeting children’s physical and spiritual needs.

All profits from private sponsored children in our schools will be cycled back into the community through providing school fees to orphans and most disadvantaged children, investments in health care facilities, agriculture and other sustainability solution projects which can help us achieve 100% self-funding of our operations to break the current over dependency cycle.

 

Facts

Though Uganda is providing free education in primary and high school in some schools, however out of 3 children who joins schooling, 2 drop out due to scholastic materials, hygiene sanitary pads, other fees and school requirements,

According to World Bank report (Uganda-at-a glance (Africa can) updated on the 5th of March 2020, The actual years of learning are only 4.5, with the 2.5 years considered ‘wasted’ due to poor Education system. For instance, only 6% of children in Uganda can read a paragraph at the end of the fourth grade. At 3%, Uganda’s annual population growth rate is among the highest in the world, despite a reduction in fertility rate. The refugee population has tripled since July 2016 and is currently around 1.35million, making it largest refugee host in Africa and third in the world. Uganda’s economy has ideologies slower pace, reducing its impact on poverty. In the five years leading up to 2016, average annual growth was 4.5%, compared to 7% in the previous 5 years from the base year 2016. And from 1992 to 2013, the percentage of Ugandan households living in poverty was halved; for every three Ugandans who get out of poverty, two fall back in.

The NBS TV’s this is my story program of June 7th, 2020, over 60 learners between the ages of 14-15 were pregnant and likely to miss school; these pregnancies are partly attributed to extreme poverty. Child marriages and teenage pregnancies have for years been a national concern. Teenage girls account for 17.2% of all maternal deaths in Uganda. Strategies have been mooted to ensure that school going children access learning materials but obviously this is not possible to most poor households in Uganda.
