The private Education Development Network (PEDN) in partnership with Feed the future Uganda Youth Leadership for Agriculture a USAID- funded project are undertaking a campaign to raise awareness on the importance of girls’ education and the value of women empowerment.
This is not only an awareness campaign but will also serve as a fundraiser for the Girls’ Education and Livelihoods fund established by PEDN that is expecte4d to raise Shs200m to support 50 Uganda girls attain an education.
The campaign will be carried out through a series of cinema screenings of the acclaimed film, Girls Rising, a documentary movie highlighting the global campaign for girls’ education. This movie follows 9 girls from Haiti, Nepal, Ethiopia, India, Egypt, Peru, Cambodia, Sierra Leone, and Afghanistan on their journey to Education.
According to Mr. Ochatre Nixon the Executive Director of the Private Education Development Network, the expectation is that through the screenings of the public will be compelled to contribute to the fund.

“We are looking to raise Ushs200 million from these screenings. This money will send 50 girls through O-level education. We have already identified these vulnerable girls through our network of 300 schools which are across the country,” he says.
“The reason we are choosing O-level is simply because many girls stop their education at primary school level as secondary education is financially challenging.”
