Partnering To Build A World Where All Children Fill Loved

Marjo Children's Foundation was started in May 2022 by Kinene Martin. Who, having worked as a head of schools especially private primary schools in Uganda for over twenty years, both in rural and urban settings, was always overwhelmed by big numbers of parents who wished their children good education but were limited by finances. So, in each school he headed, there were always parents coming to him either requesting for bursaries for their children or asking for a reduction in tuition fees due to the fact that private education in Uganda has to be paid for.

My mother separated with my father and my father moved on leaving me with my mother and my other 4 siblings in a temporary house. My mother worked so hard to finish the small house in which we live now. Time came when she could not manage to pay for materials like books to use at school.

MAWANDA DENNIS: 12 years, Primary Three
My name is Mawanda Dennis and I am in primary three at Marjo Nursery and Primary School. I was attacked by a sickness some years back and I became lame when I was in primary three. I dropped out of school because the distance to the nearby school was too long for me to travel on a wheel chair. Even when I could go to school, it was very difficult for me to attend because there was no one to help me with going to the toilet and getting me food from home.
