When you live in America or other first-world countries, you sometimes forget how other people are living. Children suffer especially hard in poor countries. The Teach Them to Fish Foundation has dedicated itself to building primary schools in Uganda to help disadvantaged children who do not have a school to attend and for young girls who are at risk for being sold into prostitution get the education they so desperately need.
Make a Difference – Donate to Build Schools in Uganda
When you donate, 100 percent of the proceeds received through our website go to building safe, secure, and wholesome primary schools in rural Uganda so that the kids there have a place that they can learn and grow. We teach them life skills as well, such as avoiding the risk of human trafficking for the young girls there. These brick and mortar schools are dedicated to helping the underprivileged of Uganda get a leg up in life.
Whether you can donate a few dollars or more, your contribution will be helpful. With whatever spare change you have, you can help us continue our mission of educating and helping the children of Uganda. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to learn more about how you can donate. Or you can give us a call at 202-253-9393 to ask us any questions that you may have.
We are excited to work with you.
