Every child is entitled to a basic education and it is because of this that we at X-SUBA have taken it upon us to try our best to deliver a basic education to the children and youth in the disadvantaged communities of Jinja through the following projects.
The learning center is a project part of the education program of X-SUBA. The vision of XSUBA is greatly interconnected with the learning center which states:
“We envisage a world where all young people are healthy, educated and protected”
Some children are still unable to go to school because parents can’t afford the basic requirements such as; books, school uniform, school meals, maintenance dues etc.
The learning center is a place where children can benefit from free education for a period of one year in the following areas;
- Critical thinking
X-SUBA ICT is one of the most recent innovation that we have taken up. We came to the realization that ICT is now a crucial part in the world we now live in and it is as such that we believe in order for the young children and youth to compete favorably in this ever changing world, they require the basic IT knowledge. We have an ICT hub with a library where we provide free IT classes to all. We do our best to see that we can provide the basic knowledge which in turn can be used to do great things in the lives of the people we train.
Under the sponsorship project, we task ourselves with connecting children with sponsorship opportunities. As earlier stated, so many of the children from the communities we operate in are unable to afford school and our learning center can only do so much. So after the one year at learning center, we try to get the children into other schools for further studies through various sponsors.
Under the youth mentorship project we provide Internships, Volunteering and capacity building for out of school young people. These are always both Nationals and internationals from various parts of the world.
