Education Empowers All Students – Especially Girls
One important objective of the St. Kizito Foundation is to support the female child by giving her access to a good education to help empower her and make sure she has a secure future. A nation with educated women is a nation that will thrive!
Uganda, being a developing nation, particularly needs to ensure that the female child is not left behind. At the beginning of each term I make visits to the schools where St. Kizito students are being educated. I make sure that all students, and especially female students, are safe and have everything needed to focus on their studies. As I visit each school I check on our students to learn how they are doing in their studies and health wise as well as encourage them to work hard to achieve the best grades.
One bright young girl, pictured her, is Mutaganda Patience who is one our students studying at Mukono Junior. Patience aspires to become a future physician. She desires to help in medical science and hopes to make new discoveries that will rid the world of diseases or reduce their impact. She hopes to help people live longer, healthier lives. These are noble and wonderful goals! Let us pray for her that she will be able to achieve these goals.
