The Young Seeds Foundation has established a wonderful relationship with Star Education Centre in Bweyale, Uganda. Star Education Centre is a primary boarding school where our children first attend on leaving South Sudan. Star has an excellent educational record as well as winning many national trophies in the creative arts (dance / music). We are very confident of the care taken of the children at Star and have very regular contact with the Director and the Principal.
Bakhita Primary School is a non-boarding school based in Kiryandongo Refugee Camp in Bweyale, Uganda. We currently have three children attending this local school.
Another major school is Panyadoli Secondary School, which is a boarding school for the older children to attend in Kiryandongo Refugee Camp, Bewyale. We currently have seven children attending secondary school here.
We currently have three older students attending Luyanzi Boarding College in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. These students are in their final year of school prior to entering university in 2019.
As entry into a quality University system in Uganda is very competitive, we have chosen Luyanzi because of its high academic success record.
Our coordinators regularly visit the schools to monitor the childrens' welfare and educational progress. If any issues arise, coordinators report immediately to Young Seeds committee for decision-making. At times this can include medical expenses, absenteeism, or social influences.
