Welcome

Welcome to the Ugandan Girls Scholarship Foundation website.

The Ugandan Girls Scholarship Foundation was established in 2005. We are pleased to announce that in January, 2012 we received Registered Charity Status. To date 34 girls have been assisted with full scholarships to secondary boarding school. These 34 girls are merely a sampling of the intelligent and talented young women in the Budondo sub county. Many of those girls will not continue past elementary school because their family can’t afford school fees. Without funding for school the girls will return to their family home and remain dependent on their family for their well being. Often they will marry young, live in abject poverty, have many children and continue the cycle of poverty. With your support we can change the lives of even more young women. Ultimately, we hope to have broader effect on the community as a whole as these girls will eventually be in a better position to give back to their community.

In 2005 the foundation established a partnership with St. Mary’s Nsuube primary school in the Budondo sub county of Uganda. We have offered a scholarship to the top female student from that school every year. Additionally, when funding has permitted we have provided additional scholarships to be awarded to the top female students from the entire sub county. Each girls accepted into the program is guaranteed a scholarship to help her excel through S1 – S6 (many of us know this as junior high and high school). With the recent graduation of our three most senior students, we are evaluating the possibility of providing support for University. 100% of donations received from you will directly provide boarding school fees for the girls.

Our philosophy: As global citizens, we have an obligation to make a difference. We have chosen this project because it matches our personal values and beliefs. With your help, we are in a position to effect change. We are also pleased to be doing our part toward the accomplishment of the UN Millennium Development Goals.
