Tavia School recognizes that many children in Uganda come from poor social economic backgrounds that deprive them an opportunity to go to quality schools;
According to World Bank (2015), 55% of children below 0-4 years in Uganda live in extreme poverty. 38% of children aged 6-17 in Uganda live in poverty & 18% live in extreme poverty.
Further still, the children in Uganda are faced with challenges and consequences of domestic violence.
The cause of this is sought to be poverty among other causes thus making access to quality education difficult.
Tavia school therefore has a responsibility to support some children faced with the above challenges. The school through a well thought criteria offers an opportunity to some children from such households especially those headed by poor women.
