Bridge Scholarship Program

Education of children is key to creating economic opportunities and sustained peace in Uganda. Families struggle to afford "school fees" for children, which can exceed $250 for primary school and $500 for secondary school. School fees covers the cost of room and board, uniform, books and supplies, as well as teacher salariesBuilding a Bridge to Uganda tries to “bridge” that gap so that more children can go to school, remain in school and escape the cycle of poverty that plagues Uganda.

 

The Bridge Scholarship Program is expanding to support graduates of PJPII who will be pursuing college education. Tuition, room and board for one-year is $1,500. Our mission to transform lives is fulfilled by enabling students to achieve their goals through education. 

"Education is the most powerful tool we can use to change the world."

-Nelson Mandela
