Child Education Program
CACI has an endless pain of seeing children from poor families suffer by not going to school or dropping out before completing primary seven. This assessment is always noticed in the enrollment of young girls for the skilling program aged 12-17 years. Also the adult learning classes /groups registering a big numbers in the communities we work in.
CACI is committed to link you and your network in identifying a child to change his/her life by supporting them with school tuition to allow them stay in school. CACI has managed to support these children with scholastic materials such as note books, pens, used text books, school bags, clothes and shoes etc mobilized through churches and well-wishers in communities.
CACI King David Learning Center.
The center is situated in the rural areas of Mukono district Kiwugo village, Namuyenje supporting the vulnerable children to start accessing education and reduce on walking long and risk movements to reach the next school in this village.
The community land was grabbed by the few rich people who left the poor people lacking land for cultivation of crops that would have supported their families and sending children to school.
CACI is therefore requesting volunteers to join us and secure these children’s’ future with education by offering your time to teach the children, play with them, share stories and other activities that will bring a smile on their faces.
