Heart for People supports five schools across the southern regions of Uganda. Some of our students come from single parent households, some have no parents at all, and some are raised by another relative. Most simply cannot afford the shoes, books, uniform, pencils and lunch required to attend a “free” government school. Learn more about each of our partner schools and the amazing directors who run them.
