We had a chance to visit with a family of three long term Kirabo Students this past July. Like many Ugandan families they have been without a living parent for a number of years. Child led households face countless challenges in regards to meeting their daily needs. In the day-to-day struggle to survive long terms goals such as education fall by the wayside.
This is where Kirabo comes in. With full educational scholarships many of these problems are addressed. In addition to academics the children are provided with room, board, clothing and positive adult role models in an environment that protects them from abuse and unhealthy relationships.
Watch and listen as one of these siblings, Rachel, shares her story and tells how Kirabo has enabled her to succeed in a tremendous way.
