Many children in Uganda receive a primary education of some sort but few, particularly in rural areas, go on to obtain a secondary education.

Humanist Aid Australia is partnering with Isaac Newton High School, a humanist school in Masaka, to provide a secondary education to children and young adults who would otherwise not be able to obtain one.

For $600 a child can be provided with a boarding scholarship for one year. This includes school tuition fees, textbooks, stationery, school uniform, board and three meals a day during term.

In 2015 our chairperson, Peter Furness, travelled to Uganda and met students who receive scholarships provided by humanist charities along with their parents, grandparents or guardians. Some pictures from this visit have been placed on this page. [All travel is paid for by the individuals concerned. 100% of your donation funds the scholarship.]

The opportunity provided by these scholarships has the capacity to completely change the course of a young person's life.

Scholarships can be paid for either by one payment of $600, by four quarterly payments of $150 or by monthly payments of $50.
