Education is the key to freedom

- Fredrick Douglass

In the rural areas of Uganda schooling is a luxury that many cannot afford. At One Village we understand that education is crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty and it for this reason that we construct classrooms and offer scholarships for both secondary education and tertiary education.

Secondary School Scholarships

Students are selected from Namwendwa Primary School on academic merit for a complete scholarship for their entire secondary school education. The scholarship includes their school fees, uniform, books, and exam fees.

Tertiary Scholarships

Students are selected on academic merit from the secondary school in Namwendwa to attend tertiary courses in teaching, nursing and technical skills. The impact of this program on the individual students and the community at large is unbelievable.
