Un beau projet, qui fait preuve d’autant de générosité que d'efficacité dans sa gestion, bravo !!! Chaque don est utilisé avec l’accord de ses donateurs sur un projet bien ciblé, avec un objectif simple : faire venir les enfants à l’école. D’abord, pour leur offrir un espace de sécurité, de joie et d’affection dans l’univers si dur du bidonville : un espace où ils sont des enfants qui jouent, qui apprennent et qui peuvent confier leurs difficultés à leur enseignant quand ils en ont besoin. Ensuite, pour leur donner une éducation qui leur permette lorsqu’ils seront adultes d’avoir un vrai métier, qui leur permettra de vivre dignement et de faire vivre leur famille

Un fantastique projet, sans lequel des dizaines d'enfants des bidonvilles n'auraient pu bénéficier d'une scolarité à l'école primaire ! L'action efficace, avec une utilisation économe et transparente des dons, des Ecoliers de Kampala sera encore plus nécessaire en 2021.

Les Ecoliers de Kampala has been providing for years essential and consistent support to the education of the most vulnerable children in Uganda. Its action is all the most necessary in the covid-19 context, that is plunging even more families into poverty.

A great year again for Les Ecoliers de Kampala!! The NGO could rely on the amazing job done by its representative in Kampala to push its projects forward. Frequent visits to the schools, a most needed upgrade of the Mityana orphanage (congratulations the 2 teenagers who led this fabulous project!), beginnings of a farm to feed the students. Way to go EdK!!

Successful non profit set up from scratch, now in the process of making a significant difference and gaining momentum, even though managed in part from remote. Success also driven by effective, trustable and equally trusted local relays for the organisation. Smart, simple, solid.

Les Ecoliers de Kampala est une association de Loi 1901 créée en 2012. Notre zone d'action se situe en Ouganda et vise plus précisément à améliorer les conditions de vie des populations, hommes, femmes et enfants, vivant dans les bidonvilles de la capitale Kampala et ses environs.

Les populations soutenues
Nous apportons notre aide à deux populations-cibles: les écoliers, et les hommes et femmes souhaitant démarrer une activité génératrice de revenus pour leur famille et la communauté (avec pour finalité l'accès à l'éducation de leurs enfants).

Les moyens mis en oeuvre
Nous travaillons en collaboration avec l’association ougandaise AFRICA FUTURE GLORY Ltd, notre partenaire local, qui se consacre aux populations les plus démunies et notamment les écoliers fréquentant les écoles BEUPA (« Basic Education in Urban Poverty area » écoles hors du système scolaire officiel et situées dans les bidonvilles de Kampala et ses environs).

AFRICA FUTURE GLORY Ltd dispose de l’expertise nécessaire au bon fonctionnement de nos projets communs: qualité de conception du projet, qualités des membres de l’association et une méthodologie éprouvée: le programme AFLATOUN qui vise à faire prendre conscience aux élèves de leur potentiel.

Once again, I would like to emphasize the amazing (though humble/discrete) work done by the volunteer of Les Ecoliers de Kampala.
Priority is given to the most important: bringing education and giving the children what is needed to learn! And all means (time, love, money) are cleverly used on this purpose.
Good job!

It is appealing how the two founders have such a faith in what they do. They work on small, every day ways to improve life for those children. At first, they would give their time, and spend a month every summer teaching in Uganda. Then they shared the project around them and would even sell small things at the entrance of a supermarket back home to fund by any means The Ecoliers de Kampala. Every small step counts for them.

This association is amazing for children in Kampala. I loved the jewels and goodies designed and built by the children with the recycling material they collected from the trash bins.

Education is a top priority for Africa and let's help those children getting the money and support they need to go to school.

Many thanks to Magali and Benoît for their drive on this.

Best regards

Les Ecoliers de Kampala is doing a tremendous job in raising resources to support vulnerable children through its partner organisation called Africa Future Glory. Over the last two years, Les Ecoliers de Kampala has enabled the implementation of priority actions in non formal education centres called BEUPAs in Kampala.

They have supported Kibuye BEUPA Centre, Luzira BEUPA Centre and Mulago BEUPA Centre with scholastic materials and other classroom visual aids.

They visited Uganda from 7th - 27th July 2014. During the visit, they had an opportunity to meet, interact and share with the children materials that made learning fun and interesting. They also met the teachers and parents/guardians of the children.

They visited and met key project stakeholders at Kibuye BEUPA Centre, God's Will Primary School, Mulago BEUPA Centre and Luzira BEUPA Centre.

At the end of their visit, key priority areas were identified and discussed for future action.

Ben, Mag and Emma, thank you for coming and come again!

I am a strong support of Les Ecoliers de Kampala. In particular I support this charity organization for its educational goals. It offers the opportunity for rural little boys and girls to be educated and be given a chance to empower to lead healthier, more productive lives. It then addresses the community needs in terms of sustainable developments.

The organization has taken on charity support to Africa Future Glory (AFG), an NGO in Uganda with open hands. It has helped this local organization reach children in dire need that struggle to get a basic education by increasing their chances of staying in Basic Education and Urban Poverty Areas (BEUPA) centers. These centers are resource constrained and cannot provide basic materials like books and pens to the learners.

The learners who alight at a local instructor's house come from very poor slum areas around Kampala and have to fend for themselves for the most part of the day to support their family structures and to acquire the basic minimal education materials. For these reasons they cannot attend formal primary education.

This non-profit has rescued these children by providing support in form of scholastic materials to these children through AFG

Les atouts de cette association : la proactivité, la transparence, et l’implication de ses acteurs.
Ces derniers savent faire une excellence transition entre votre générosité et les besoins de ces enfants ; autant en terme de pertinence des projets sélectionnés , qu’en terme de communication. Vous saurez, en effet, toujours comment ont été utilisés les dons, et à quel stade se situent les actions.
Bravo et longue vie à cette association !

L'avenir d'un pays se trouve dans l'éducation de ses enfants, cette association est donc une formidable initiative pour la ville de Kampala. J'espère que ce n'est que le début et que ce projet s'étendra dans d'autres villes du pays.

This organization shows great integrity in the use of their funds. They work closely with the local ugandan non-profit called Africa Future Glory and communicate regularly on the way funds have been used (scholastic materials but also actions with very concrete impact such as financing a new roof for a school!). They publish everything on their website and facebook page! Very transparent. They are motivated and answer every questions you may raise (really!).

A great non-profit with strong impact on life of children. Many actions already taken with great success. I am especially impressed with their "feeding project". It looks actually so simple but what a great impact when you understand that kids can then get their only meal of the day thanks to them and then be more concentrate when it comes to learning at school!!! Keep on working like this!!!
Warm regards,
