Download Fighting poverty - keeping girls in school in Uganda (full film):
In many developing countries, one of the key barriers to girls’ education is poverty. Poor girls struggle to complete primary, let alone attend secondary school or university. Financial hardship often forces girls out of school and into challenging and sometimes dangerous life situations. Through its scholarship programme, FAWE Uganda supports disadvantaged girls through a full cycle of primary and secondary education and, in some cases, through tertiary education too. These are testimonies of just a few of the young Ugandans who have benefited from this support.
