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.

  • St. Kizito Foundation, Uganda, Education Empowers

First born in a family of 6 children and an orphan withtout the father. Education has been a challenge and biggest problem not only with me but even the other siblings though fortunately, for my side, I received a helping hand from St. Kizito family that has enabled me attain A Level studies.

This is from which I derived my happiness and I would like to send a congratulatory message to everyone whose effort has thrown light on me through the St. Kizito’s family.

I offer my words of deep appreciation to St. Kizito Foundation that has made me see life. St. Kizito installed a fresh breath of life in the hearts of hundreds of children in Uganda.

Before meeting St. Kizito Foundation, I and many other children in Northern Uganda, comfortably in desperation, called ourselves plants amidst a forest of thorns.
