Why is there a need for education programs?

U-TOUCH has over the years supported vulnerable children in Uganda to realize their career goals through a sponsorship program facilitated through fundraising efforts of local schools in San Diego, California. These are children most of whom were orphaned by the over two decades of civil wars caused by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) Uganda. During this period, they did not have the opportunity to attend school and even after the wars, their guardians are financially incapacitated to meet their school fees and requirements.

Help us support more students!

Our education program would not be possible without the financial support of La Jolla High School and Muirlands Middle School for lending helping hands to see these children through their education. Using the funds raised, we support students to continue their education and connect with them throughout their journey to offer support.

If you have been inspired and would like to donate please see the various sponsor opportunities! We are always happy to talk through ways you can get involved. ​
