Jinja Educational Trust

Charity description

Jinja Educational Trust logo
The Jinja Educational Trust aims to improve the education, training and welfare of young people in Uganda so they can go on to acquire the necessary skills for a successful and fulfilling life.

Education in Uganda is highly valued with both teachers and students working hard to achieve the best they can. However often school buildings and equipment are little more than wooden shacks and a stick of chalk. Through building high quality schools, making sure they are well equipped and staffed we aim to be an example of best practice which other schools in the Jinja area can aspire to. This enables the students to achieve their full potential, whether it is through an academic or a vocational route.

If we are to succeed it is vital that we care for health as well as education. Good education has to coincide with good health. Providing clean water facilities and nutrition is paramount in providing a higher standard of student health which in turn improves school attendance.

We work in partnership with UK teaching and medical advisers and the local community to ensure the projects supported by the Trust make a positive and lasting impact that is sustainable for the future.

Please donate to support our cause.
