Karamoja Close-up

Located in northeastern Uganda, Karamoja is known for its breathtaking landscapes and a rich cultural heritage, yet faces significant obstacles like extreme poverty, food insecurity, and limited access to vital services, including education, with only 38% of children attending primary school.


Our commitment is to enhance education in Karamoja, specifically targeting vulnerable children, by rescuing them from crisis situations and providing long-term access to education and care.
