Organizational background We are a community based charity organization found in Kamuli district in Uganda which aims to assist and support orphans and vulnerable children with education and healthcare and at the same time, it aims to build a home for these children and supports elderly people wit healthcare. Mostly, we create help and empower children in Kamuli.  Many children experience abuses from people they know and from people they don’t know. This threatens their survival, development and participation in society, so we support orphans and vulnerable children go back to school.
LCEF started because children were getting one meal per day and if they were so lucky to get one so we find families for the abandoned children so we of place them into- long term care because not all babies were born so lucky.
Many children experience abuses from people they know and from people they don’t know. This threatens their survival, development and participation in society, so we support orphans and vulnerable children go back to school. Our mission:To work for the improvement of the plight of children through sharing, training, research, education and early interventions by bridging the gap between theory, policy and practice, and make our world an amazing place. Our  visionHealth And Compassionate World We hope to further our progress to reaching these goals through the project outlined in this project. Challenges  
  • Parent Involvement: Some parents won’t be seen for the entire school year, no matter what sort of issues might arise. Others never seem to go away, hovering over the child and teacher and interfering with the education process. There are ways parents can become involved and support their child’s education at the same time, but teachers don’t always get that level from parents
  • Poverty: Students living below the poverty level tend to have the highest dropout rates. Studies show that students who do not get enough food or sleep are less likely to perform at their full academic potential. Schools know these truths first-hand, and despite efforts to provide students with basic essentials, teachers, administrators and lawmakers know there is simply not enough to go around.
  • Family factors:Also play a role in a teacher’s ability to teach students. Principals and teachers agree that what is going on at home will impact a student’s propensity to learn., single parents, poverty, violence and many other issues are all challenges a student brings to school every day. While some teachers and administrators try to work with children in less than ideal family environments, they can only do so much – especially when parents are often not willing to partner with the schools to provide for the children so  the children will not have books, pens and other scholastic materials to use in class.
  • Project Goals
All children should have books they call their own This scholastic material campaign  project will buy scholastic materials for 168 needy school children in  foundation  for third term. Last term donors donated $200 towards purchase of scholastic materials for 168 children our foundation however many didn’t get the materials due to less funds donated . The new school term will commence in September 9th, 2019 but the children will not have books, pens, sets  and other scholastic materials to use in class. Majority of these children do not have at least a parent due to the high death rates caused by HIV, others have but cannot afford these However some outside  parents make sure that their children  have books but  not all children were fortunate  like those. The following are the project Goals:
  • Decrease in the number of school dropouts
  • The parents and care takers will be able to provide food for their children since the school basic needs will be provided.
  • The children will be able to get good healthcare treatment from parents and caregivers
  • Increase in academic performance
Project Activities The organization will be distributing scholastic materials to the children  in the organization. Each child will be getting the materials starting from primary one to primary seven. Distributing of those materials will be done throughout the third term since all students will hoping to be promoted to the next class.  Approximately Kamuli region has the highest population because of the high birth rates so we need reach out to these children. Project Results: The impact of scholastic material campaign  will be felt in the short term. The  project results which will be realized upon completion starting from September 17th,  2019 To December 15th 2019 Upon completion, each child in the organization will have a dozen of books (96 pages), six pencils, seven pens(88) and a mathematical set-88 (depending on a class). We believe the rate at which some students were missing school due to lack of scholastic materials will go down leading to an increase in academic performance . and therefore their future will be brighten For medium term and long term : will actually depend on the success of the first term. A report will be written and updates will be made showing the engagement per-school.
