|FAWE Uganda with support from the Mastercard foundation is implementing the Higher Education Access Program (HEAP). The program aims at enabling 300 (70% female and 30% male) academically talented yet economically disadvantaged students from 13 selected disadvantaged districts of Bukwo, Mayuge, Buyende, Katakwii, Amudat, Kaabong, Pader, Amuru, Adjumani, Kanungu, Bundibugyo, Ntoroko and Bullisa districts to access and complete higher education.
The Program is being implemented in partnership with 5 partner learning institutions of Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Gulu and Busitema universities, Medical Laboratory training school Jinja and Jinja School of Nursing and Midwifery.
The Program beneficiaries undergo an extended orientation programme to prepare them for leadership roles at the university, equipped with financial literacy skills and pyscho-social support to enable them settle well at the learning institutions. The graduates are also prepared for the competitive employment world through the School to work transition works organized by the Organization as well as the mentorship program run at the partner learning institutions.
I am proud to be part of the program.
