Uniforms and other School Requirements

The Ugandan Government in conjunction with the Ministry of Education provides free Universal Basic Education for primary one through seven; however Uniforms, Books and other school requirements are the responsibility of individual students and their guardians. NFSC tries to help out those children whose guardians cannot afford to pay for those requirements.

Funds for Clothing and Uniforms

There is no money in the existing budget to afford clothing shoes or uniforms for the children. The difficulty is also that the children continue to out-grow their clothing/shoes and yet there are no others for them to wear. Self-esteem issues arise when wearing torn, old, non-fitting clothes; it singles them out as poor and orphaned.
