"Like a caring parent, Connect Africa wished the best for me carefully choosing the correct standard of the school I would join. Hard work coupled with continual counseling from Charles and Lynn paid off and I excelled. I realize that the people in charge of our lives at Connect Africa are generous individuals who really listen, understand, respect our emotions and gently guide us." Sembatya Raymond, with CAF 2007-2014
In Uganda education is not free, and we are committed to educating students from nursery school through university or vocational training. Our sponsorship program can carry a student through 20 years of education, guided by the personal attention we give to each student and family. We stay actively involved with them, providing much more than financial support as we help launch them into their first steps of adulthood.
We fund: Tuition and the costs of uniforms and black shoes, school supplies, hygiene products, and medical and dental care, including the extra needs for HIV positive students.
Lynn and Charles review academic performance and behavior reports, work closely with students to provide them with tutoring they may need, collaborate with the families to help guide the student's experience, performance and behavior. We engage with the larger community to establish a strong partnership to foster a successful educational experience.
Our students embrace our core values of taking personal responsibility for their future, with the understanding that their success will strengthen their families, community and country.
