Primary School
Over 250 children, teens, and young adults are being educated by the St. Nicholas Uganda Children's Fund.  No schooling in Uganda is
free, and without education there is no future.  AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children from the slums of Kampala are given an
opportunity to realize their potential as we take them from primary school through secondary school and beyond.  More than 100
students have completed their education and have entered the workforce with confidence and competence.
The Importance of Education
From preschool to seventh grade, our youngest children
receive everything they need for academic success.  They
attend a primary school within sight of our office where the
teaching staff and administration instruct, love, and care for
the children as if they were their own.  We provide
comprehensive health care for all of our students, covering
everything from routine scrapes and bruises to malaria and
more serious conditions.      
Secondary School
Every secondary student is offered the opportunity to attend
boarding school where they can escape the risks and
temptations of their urban slum neighborhoods.  Far from the
city, these teens enjoy clean air, fresh water, and a green and
spacious campus where they are free to study and play in a
safe and secure environment.  In addition to a challenging
academic curriculum, the school offers a variety of activities,
including sports, music, dance, and drama.
Vocational & Business Training
Young men and women who are proficient in practical skills are
very much in demand in the Ugandan job market.  Our
vocational students are being trained in auto mechanics,
tailoring, electrical installation, catering, computer science,
cosmetology, and plumbing.  Others are studying
accountancy, business management, and Early Childhood
Education.  Our graduates have entered the workforce with
pride and self-confidence.
Secondary students who qualify academically are given the
opportunity to join a university to earn a bachelors degree.
We counsel and advise each student on a course of study
according to their interests and aptitude.  Our students are
enrolled in a wide variety of disciplines, including Law,
Engineering, Secondary Education, Tourism, Business
Administration, Social Work, Journalism, and International
Relations.  More than forty have graduated.
Most of our children are being cared for by uneducated and
unskilled grandmothers, aunts, and single mothers.  Many of
these women are HIV-positive.  Because our support does not
stop at the school gate, we are always ready to assist
struggling families in times of crisis.  We offer rent assistance
when needed and medical treatment in life-threatening
situations.  For families sleeping on the floor, we provide beds,
mattresses, sheets, blankets, and mosquito nets.
