Transforming hearts, souls and minds of the Ugandan. youth through mentoring, job training and education.
Heartily Souls supports young adults from the community of Kikubanimba, Uganda who do not attend school or who have dropped out. Heartily Souls provides these young adults (14-25) the opportunity to support themselves and their families. Our training programs provides them with income-generating projects and access to skills-sets that will promote financial independence and will build self-esteem.
Heartily Souls is planning to create a secondary school will have special teachers and mentors in place to encourage and support at-risk students, with a focus on female students who are at-risk of dropping out and being forced into early marriage. By focusing outreach on females, we can provide them with opportunities to meet with female mentors frequently to discuss the challenges of staying in school and to develop supportive systems to keep them engaged in the school curriculum and in school clubs.
Girls who stay in school are healthier, are better able to contribute to the economic vitality of their families, and they raise healthier children. Most importantly, once a young women is educated, she will not deny this same opportunity to her own children.
Heartily Souls is an all-volunteer led organization. The founder is Ugandan and grew up in Nigeria. He is now living in the United States but loves his homeland and wants to provide young adults with better opportuities.
