Introduction of School Support Program:
United Aid for Africa focuses a large part of its efforts on education. UAA believes that education is paramount in eliminating the poverty and day-to-day struggles faced in the villages. Children are eager to learn, but they don’t always have the resources. The goal for 2014 is to provide 4,000 school kits for children in Ivory Coast. With the kits and uniforms, children can go to school prepared, and their families can focus on providing food and shelter. But this can only happen with your help. Funds raised for these programs will have life-changing results for the children - and they deserve at least an opportunity.
