BENEFITING: TOGETHER WE CAN INC
Since 2006, A River Blue has served youth in northern Uganda by providing basic education and literacy instruction; vocational training in agriculture, tailoring, and hospitality; entrepreneurship skills training; and essential social and therapeutic services in a community healing and rebuliding after more than twenty years of conflict.*
A River Blue has made girls' education a priority. A dormitory would vastly increase the school's capacity to serve young women, many of whom live too far away to commute safely. Since its inception, the school has also taken special care to meet the needs of young mothers. A dormitory would provide a safe and supportive environment where they can live with their babies while attending classes.
With your help, the proposed dormitory will be built to accomodate as many as 192 girls and young women as they pursue the education and skills training that will so positively impact their futures and the future of their community.
