Education is the only way a village boy or girl can dig themselves out of poverty. The St. Bakhita school system, jewel of Kabingo, provides this opportunity. A village child can begin school in baby class and has the opportunity to extend their education through advanced high school. The schools educate over 800 students per year.
Hope for Kabingo supports the schools and students through a sponsorship program at all levels of education. Sponsorship beyond high school and into technical and university programs has contributed to the next generation of medical professionals, teachers, plumbers and electricians. These young men and women have generated the ripple effect of education by sponsoring the education of their siblings and cousins. Hope for Kabingo sponsors over 150 students annually. This past year, the village Primary 7 students performed 10% higher than the national average on the Ugandan National exam.
