Action For Children
Holt Uganda partners with Action for Children to serve children and families through family strengthening and educational sponsorship programs. Within Action for Children, Holt helps facilitate Action Support Groups (ASGs) which are community groups of families. ASGs benefit from income generating assistance, especially agricultural inputs. Group members are taught how to manage their projects in a way that will benefit their families, and are encouraged to actively participate in all group activities. Children are provided with educational support through the payment of school fees, provision of school uniforms, school sweaters, school bags, play materials to improve their learning environment, and payments for stipends of early childhood development caretakers. This is provided with the goal to increase and maintain student enrollment and help alleviate the burden on caretakers.
