Poverty Driving Children Out of Government Schools in Namayingo
Namayingo is one of the districts in Busoga where poverty is hindering education especially of the girl child. Girls are married off for dowry while those kept in school are tempted to move out with men at a tender age ending up pregnant.
Some civil society organizations are however trying to change this by empowering parents financially so that they ably support their children throughout school. Salma Namwanje was in Namayingo and filed this report.
