BRAVO SHOES COMMUNITY SUPPORT ORGANIZATION
At Bravo Shoes Community Support, we make every effort to realize our goal of a world where every child has the right to a secure and supportive environment for their growth. It is essential to us that children’s rights are protected, and their voices are heard. We work with the government to empower communities to put children first and to create systems and structures that prevent the unnecessary separation of children. We work together to create conditions where the less privileged child can flourish and thrive no matter their challenging circumstances.
Uganda has been dealing with uncontrolled population growth for a long time and this puts extreme stress on the country’s educational system, making it harder to increase quality in education and lowering accessibility of education. Additionally, the learning facilities are in poor conditions with lacking washrooms and resources as well as poor and dangerous infrastructure.
Although the literacy rate in 2022 was 6.33% higher than 2012 at 76.53%, it is still not where it is supposed to be. Nearly one out of every five children in Uganda is uneducated. The problem is particularly serious among young girls living in rural areas because of familial responsibilities and stigma.
Although 7 years of education is compulsory for all children in Uganda, many school children cannot finish their schooling because they have to help pay family expenses or are recruited for conflict. While supplementary school costs also dissuade many parents from sending their children to school, to begin with, the total number of children receiving adequate education is still low.
Bravo Shoes Community Support Organization will serve by providing the children with the resources and opportunities they need to receive a quality education. We believe that education is the key to empowering individuals and communities to break the cycle of poverty and build a better future for themselves and their families. Through our work, we hope to create a world where every child has access to education and the opportunity to succeed.
