The Child of Hope school currently has nine teachers in its nursery and primary departments, with salaries currently ranging from £40 to £60 per month. We say currently, because the inflation in Uganda means prices are rising almost weekly. As the school expands, we will employ more and more teachers, up to an expected 14. Virtually without exception, they are all residents of the slum - some are displaced people from the north of the country, who bring with them the skills we need.
Teacher sponsorship involves funding part of a teacher’s salary - as much as you prefer, starting at £10 per month.
With your help, we can continue to provide a high-quality education in the middle of terrible poverty. And at the same time, provide a good job, with long-term prospects, to some wonderful people who have suffered horrific experiences. In turn, because of their income they are able to help their own families who are also very poor. Employing one teacher has a big impact, not just on the children they teach, but on their families and communities.
