Our campaign team believe that all people deserve to be treated equally, with respect and be allowed to DREAM. we believe in helping those less fortunate and providing them with opportunities to make their dreams come true.
In Africa there are many girls who are from poor families, who will never have an education, are often abused, and are destined to produce babies and a life of toil and hardship. Those who are fortunate to be in school often miss school at time of menstruation due to lack of understanding of what is happening to their bodies and lack of sanitary pads and abuse and ridicule from the boys in their schools and their fathers at home. The Candle Light Foundation Uganda and the Candle Light High School provides an education for those who have been less fortunate, provides skill sets that will create opportunities after graduation, and provides menstrual hygiene management training to both girls and boys and sanitary pads for the girls; so girls stay in school, have a safe space, grow in confidence and grow in self esteem. The Candle Light High School provides the counselling and opportunities to help boys and girls achieve their DREAMS.
All money raised will go towards to expansion of the High School. More classrooms, more dormitories, larger dining room and kitchen, better restrooms and more space for the social enterprise. This in turn means that more Girls can be provided with opportunities in a safe space where gender equality is encouraged. At present the school has capacity for 140 students. The new building will be able to support 700 students and for many years to come. There will be a Phase 1 followed by a phase 2
“For $808, you can ensure that ten girls have a classroom in which to be educated for a year. For $81, you can ensure one girl has a safe classroom in which to learn”.
