Educating a Child, Equipping a Leader, Empowering a
Wama Junior Academy starts in 2017 with a vision to give education to orphans and poor children whose parents died of HIV / AIDS and other natural diseases. The school runs from Kindergarten to
grade 7 with a total of 200 Children. We realized the need for a school because of the increasing number of orphans and needy children in this community, we thought that the only way we could
help these children is to give them education in a way to shape their future. When education promotes children's dignity, there they have the innate belief that they have a place in the world
and a contribution to make. Its a new generation of young people who can play an active role in creating healthier families, stronger.
Local communities and positive global
We desire to raise these children in a Christian environment. These children are psychologically traumatized who need to be rehabilitated in the society. Our next phase is to construct
housing units / dormitories that will accommodate children. We therefore seek for your philanthropic support and prayer to do what we could to make Wama Junior Academy a better place for the
children to have the best learning environment.
"He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eye to them receives many curses". Proverbs 28:27
At WDF, we believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty within families and the community as a whole. With high drop out rates and a lack of quality standards within
schools in Bugiri, we are committed to challenging the typical status quo. Instead, we offer the community quality educational institutes that go beyond exclusively utilizing the Ugandan
curriculum to raise the next generation of Ugandan leaders to “be the change.”
In the the village of Bugodo in
Bugiri District around 100kms from Kampala. Little or no aid had ever reached the village - they have no water, school, clinic, electricity or any of the things we take for granted in everyday
In 2015 there was nothing except
despair in the village, disease and poverty was everywhere, children and adults alike felt they were the forgotten people.
