Children + School Programs

Hundreds of children enrolled. See their joy.

View Their Progress.


Keeping children in school helps a nation thrive, which builds friends in vital parts of the world.  We give hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children a safe place to live, eat, love and learn, from age 5 all the way up to completing their secondary education, vocational training or university.


Uganda Rebuilds.


There are more orphans in Uganda than anywhere else in the world — over 2.4 million children — due to the AIDS epidemic, extreme poverty, and decades of civil conflict. We’re on the ground in Uganda to help as many of these young people as we can. We give children safe shelter, food, clothing, education and medical care. In Uganda, there are no public schools, so without school fees, children don’t learn. Through us, children gain an education and the life skills they need for future success. Their lives are completely transformed.

“I see a brilliant light at the end of the tunnel — [I'm] not a girl too scared to run

but a young woman ready to spread her wings and fly: one ready to take on the world.”

Educational Support: COU currently provides school fees, clothing, nutritious food and access to basic medical care for hundreds of children in the Rakai, Mukono and Kampala districts of Uganda.READ MORE
