Our Core Values
Girls for mentorship
Rural Girl Child Mentorship (RGCM Uganda) is a one to one mentorship project.RGCM Uganda supports rural girls with Education Opportunities in Secondary and Tertiary/ University levels. We've 67 girls enrolled since January 2012 with over 1612 pending applications from highly motivated but the poorest, vulnerable girls we are currently not able to support.
Schools and Community Sensitization and Empowerment (SCSE) ProjectFrom the surveys the RGCM Uganda team carried out between November and December 2011, and statistics obtained from Uganda Education Ministry, up to 60% of rural girls drop out before reaching high school.Vast majority of rural Ugandan girls have been unable to complete their education at the high school level(98% of the children and especially girls in rural Ugandan communities have been unable to complete high school. Only 0.5% will continue further for a tertiary training and graduate at a diploma level).
Most dropped out of school due to circumstances beyond their control, such as chronic poverty, effects of HIV which have left them orphaned or forced them into child head-of-the-family role...
Farming/Agriculture ProjectWe are planted over 200 fruit trees and vegetables in our community demonstration gardens as well as in family units. We have grown portions of Mangoes, Oranges, Avocados, Pawpaws, maize, Cabbages, Egg plants and Sukumawiki. Our demonstration Garden has a variety of fruits and vegetables grown and maintained in a more skilled manner in order to produce quality yields that will motivate the beneficiaries continuously implement in their own farms.
