Educating Julius

Julius lives in Uganda, and lost his father to Aids when he was a small boy. His mother looked after him and his four siblings, but she was unable to cover their school fees. Julius’s attendance and performance suffered, and he was expelled from school. A volunteer AIDs counsellor in Julius’s village heard his story, and enrolled him onto the Education Scholarship Programme with support from Lessons for Life. He was welcomed back to school, and very shortly announced as the second best student in his district.

“This will enable me to have the life I dreamt of and take care of my family as well as supporting fellow orphans and vulnerable children in my community. Thank you for hearing my cry.”
