EVERY BOY IS UNIQUE FROM ONE AND ANOTHER. EACH BOY HAS DIFFERENT INTEREST, SKILLS, AGE, EDUCATION LEVEL AND SO ON. TO CATER TO EACH OF THESE BOYS WE'VE PARTNERED WITH VARYING BOARDING SCHOOLS, TRADE SCHOOLS, AND DRIVING SCHOOL. EACH KID HAS VOICED THEIR OPINION AND ALONG WITH OUR OPINION THEY ALL HAVE A SCHOOL/TRADE THEY HOPE TO ATTEND. IF YOU CHOICE TO SPONSOR A BOY YOU WILL ALSO SUPPORT THEIR CHOICE OF EDUCATION. WE WILL BE SURE TO EMAIL YOU PERSONALLY WITH THE EXACT COST FOR THAT TERM.
Primary & Secondary School
We have paired with a wonderful boarding school in the Entebbe, Uganda area. Kids Pioneer Primary school. Like for most boarding schools in Uganda, the cost will be very front loaded, as all the basic necessities will also need to be bought. Most schools follow the same breaks / term schedule. Each term is around 2.5-3 months and break is anywhere from a month to three months. Sponsors will pay in full for their first term at least a month before the term starts. At the end of each term, they will stay in our home free of cost, unless you desire to donate- whether for the organization or personal- for their break. First term is typically around 370-470$ USD, terms after that will be around 200-275$ USD.
For Secondary School we have paired up with Kisubi High School, they follow the same break / term schedule as primary school. Typically secondary school will be more expensive then primary school, secondary is 4-6 years total. First term will be roughly be 530-600 $ USD and following terms will be 400-450 $ USD. If you wish to have a more in depth cost break down of your specific child and the school supplies list, please contact us and we will do so.
We have paired with various trade schools where the boys can learn to become welders, electricians, mechanics, beauticians, etc. Trade school costs vary from trade to trade, but typically we expect around 200-300$ USD per term. As it is a trade school, they will only attend the school for around one-two years (with each year varying from 3-4 terms.) All sponsors will have access to the accountability and cost break down of school and the necessities upon request.
Mental Health can be impacted by biological factors, family history of mental illness, and life experiences such as trauma and abuse (both drug and physical). As you can imagine, many of our boys suffer from PTSD, psychosis, anxiety, anger management, depression, low self esteem, and other diagnosis. Positive health can help people cope with stress, realize their full potential, work productively, and make significant contributions to society as a whole. At Streets To Success Foundation we acknowledge the importance of positive mental health for our boys before, during, and after their education. In order to give our boys the best care an opportunity for successful education and future, we pride ourselves in providing adequate resources to promote a healthy mind set. Some of our boys have been participating in one on one therapy to help healing with past traumas they have endured. We have seen extremely positive effects with our boys so far and are hopeful that the progression continues. While sponsorship of a boy does not require payment for their therapy, we greatly appreciate any donation that can be towards individual therapy for the boys. To sponsor a boy for only their therapy sessions, cost ranges on 50 - 100 $ USD a month and can range from roughly 3 - 6 months based on the specific needs of the child. If you are interested in donating specifically to therapy sessions please contact us!
