(UG) Secondary School Textbooks

This project has been funded! Thank you!

In February of 2015, we opened our secondary school in Uganda, Marani Honors High School. Since then, we have been operating without textbooks.

The teachers and students have been creative in finding ways to get information, but it is time for us to add textbooks for our school. Over the next few years, we want to add books gradually until we have a complete set.

In an effort to move our schools in Uganda toward 100% sustainability, we are seeking a partnership with Teach A Man To Fish (TAMTF). Through this partnership TAMTF will work with our staff and teachers to develop businesses (up to 8 businesses) that will be run by the school with the purpose of funding future operational costs.

Photos from Your Child's Christmas Party in Uganda

Thanks to the generous donations of partners like you, children in COTN–Uganda were able to hold Christmas parties. They celebrated the birth of Jesus through dancing, nutritious meals, and gift giving.

Children were excited by the new clothes they received, but one of the very best presents was letters from the children’s sponsors.

Fun and Learning in Uganda: Photo Update

If you’ve been wondering why you haven’t seen a blog post about Uganda’s summer camp yet, it’s because Children of the Nations in Uganda holds their camp in December, during their break from school.

However, every summer COTN-Uganda celebrates Center Days, an event at our ministry site where children perform songs, dances, and skits for their families and the local community.

“Food was Just a Miracle in Our Home”: Flavia’s Story

Perhaps it’s no surprise that Flavia’s favorite story from the Bible is Job. Flavia’s own trials started early. Her parents died when she was very young. So she lived with her grandmother in a small village in Uganda. 

Andrew’s Story: “I No Longer Cry at Night but Sing Psalms in My Heart”

Andrew vividly remembers his life before COTN: “I could see my mom toiling hard for us, and this would break my heart because I knew she will not go far like that with us. And somehow, I wanted to join hands with her and help her do anything, even if it made no sense, but [I] just wanted to show her that it would be well with us. Yet at night, I would get in bed and weep so bitterly about myself and my sister’s future.”

Sponsors like you are helping students from some of the poorest parts of Uganda receive a high-quality education. Through your sponsorship, young men and women who once had no chance of earning an income and supporting their families are seeing a world of opportunities open up before them. Thank you for providing these opportunities by sponsoring a student.

Our University/Vocational Program has two phases:
Phase One: Gap Year – The gap year gives students practical work experience that prepares them for the next phase of their education. It also gives them a chance to work within COTN in an area of interest, letting them contribute to the ministry in a meaningful way.
Phase Two: Attend University or Vocational School – After completing the gap year, students begin their course of study in school. The length of time they spend in this phase depends on their school and area of study.

Graduates of the University/Vocational Program have already become doctors, teachers, and other professionals. As our children grow up, hundreds more students will enter the program in the coming years.

Benefits/services provided may include: Tuition, room and board, books, materials, travel costs.

Program Description: 
One of the main factors contributing to poverty in developing countries is a lack of education. Young adults who are unable to obtain the knowledge and skills that universities and vocational schools provide are also unable to secure good jobs, provide for their families, and give back to their communities. In Africa, just seven percent of the population continues their education after secondary school. COTN and its partners recognize that well-educated professionals are the people shaping their nations and breaking the cycles of poverty and illness in their families and communities. By sending students in Uganda to vocational schools and universities, COTN seeks to empower young men and women to find their place in the economy, provide for their future families, serve their communities, and raise their nation out of poverty. We have already seen students in other countries graduate from universities and vocational schools, preparing to serve the next generation as doctors, lawyers, teachers, electricians, mechanics, business people, and more. With the skills they’ve learned and the care they’ve received from COTN, we are convinced these students will change the future of their nations. Our current programs include sending students to universities or vocational schools to study public health, accounting, community development, agriculture, economics, and more.
