We are in need of your support to ensure that we can improve the lives of hearing impaired pupils attending Laroo ADRA school in Gulu, Northern Uganda, which caters to over 800 pupils from the ages of 6-19, many of whom are rescued child soldiers and victims of war who come from backgrounds of extreme poverty. With their families being unable to afford to pay for their daily upkeep and feeding in their household, and the struggle of raising children with disabilities, the school is home to 43 hearing impaired pupils, providing food, shelter and an education.
Laroo ADRA struggles to ensure that all its students are provided with sufficient food, learning materials and clothing due to lack of financial support. We are currently working closely with the school to help improve the learning experience and living standards of their 43 hearing impaired pupils.
By making a donation, you will help us make a direct impact on the lives of the children attending this school.
By making a donation, you will help us to ensure that we are able to provide the following:
School uniforms and kits for physical education
School books and materials including aids specifically designed for pupils with hearing impairments
Food; the pupils are often neglected by their families who do not pay for their feeding costs or cannot afford to pay, meaning that the school struggles to cover these outstanding costs. Due to this, the school is limited to serving posho (made of maize flour, millet flour, or Sorghum flour) and beans.
Consistent electricity; your contributions will help us to help provide power cables for the dormitories at the school. The lack of consistent electricity especially affects the hearing impaired children as they rely heavily on visuals to communicate.
Computers; with your support, we can help provide regular access to computers for pupils and staff at Laroo ADRA who currently only have access to one computer.
