I’m Onen David, a self-taught Photographer and Web developer. I take photos and produce podcasts on issues related to Gender, Anthropology and Psychology. Generous people like you contribute to the storytelling from which I support few vulnerable children to access and stay in schools.
Currently, i’m raising funds to support education for vulnerable children to access and stay in schools. On my website, I’m launching a fundraising project to raise 2 million shillings to support tuition fees and feeding for 10 (5 Girls, 5 Boys) in primary schools in northern Uganda and specifically targeting children whose parents were child soldiers – parents who missed education because they were ill-fated victims of abduction – many unfortunately died – those who survived have been robbed off substantiable livelihoods. Many former abductees struggle to fend for their families through hand-to-mouth activities which can barely keep their children in schools.
Such children risk falling in vicious cycles of poverty. It doesn’t have to be that way! We can, we must, we should, and we have to do something to break the cycle. No child in this 21st century should stay out of school. It is well said that ‘Children are legitimate leaders of the future’. However, that will only remain a mantra if we continue to watch without questions and practical support. This initiative is only a drop in the ocean of educational needs of vulnerable children – nonetheless a promising one.
