People Concern Children's Project
People Concern Children's Project is a non-profit Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) of Uganda. It was founded in 2006 with the goal of empowering disadvanatged children to shape their own future. The key to achieving this aim is to eradicate illiteracy among underprivilidged communities and help students identify their potentials by keeping them engaged in school. PCCP seeks to raise a generation of children that will benefit the future.
20% of our students are orphans, 23% are single-parented children and 47% are neglected children taken care of by their grandparents. Some are too young to consider the existence of their biological parents, as they have only known their grandparents.
PCCP works with a total of 205 children, ranging in age from 5 to 18 years old. The program has seen a number of children from elementary school into high school, with the first high school graduate anticipated in 2016. All of our students have continued on to study in high school, with the exception of one who is in vocational training to become a mechanic. This remarkable record is a mark of PCCP's success in keeping disadvantaged kids in school, and preparing them for future success.
PCCP uses numerous strategies in helping students achieve these goals: Classroom education, computer training, music and dance class, crafts, shoe making, and a football academy.
PCCP is the reason these children have hope. Without the opportunity to study in this free school with caring teachers and caring international donors, these children would lack an education and turn to a life in the streets of Uganda. All of our funding for school supplies and materials for projects are sourced from international donors. You are the direct reason these kids have such opportunities.
With this campaign we request your help in raising money for a printer, which we will use to print exams and reports for the children. Our current printer, which has been used and repaired for many years finally broke down beyond repair. A new printer would be a great help and a blessing.
