At Fields of Dreams Uganda, it is our mission to provide hope, empowerment, and a future to the vulnerable children of Uganda through the vehicles of soccer and education.
The key to carrying out this mission is to keep the children of Uganda in school.
The simple fact is school is not free in Uganda, and in the communities where we operate, paying school fees is simply an insurmountable task for the families we walk alongside.
While we have a variety of amazing programs that encourage school attendance, without the funds for school fees, many kids would be left behind. It is our goal to keep that from happening by providing scholarships to those in need. This year it will take $60,000 to give the 400+ talented and determined children and young adults that we serve the opportunity to reach their educational dreams.
By making sure the vulnerable kids in our program have the funds to attend primary school, secondary school, vocational school, and university, our mission of providing hope, empowerment, and a future is being carried out every day.
A year of primary school costs around $90 per year
A year of secondary school costs around $375 per year
A year of vocational school costs around $650 per year
A year of university costs around $1,400 per year
