Since 1996, WTU has sponsored hundreds of refugees in Uganda from conflict – affected countries such as Rwanda, Sudan, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, and Eritrea.
WTU has also been the largest provider of support for access to post – primary education and vocational training for thousands of formerly LRA abducted, internally displaced and extremely marginalized war – affected youth in Northern Uganda.
In Uganda , WTU works with refugees in the districts of Adjumani , Moyo , Arua / Nebbi , Koboko , Hoima, Masindi, Kyenjojo and Mbarara; and with IDPs in the Acholi sub – region. It is a policy of WTU that field offices are opened where there is a relatively big programme / project. WTU has been the implementing partner for the UNHCR’s education programmes for the last 15 years. WTU has supported 250 refugee youth through University under the DAFI scholarship in 15 Universities in Uganda. The majority of these are from Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Burundi-almost half of whom are women. In the same period over 1,000 adolescent refugee girls and boys were supported at secondary level in over 46 secondary schools and 250 supported at post secondary vocational training in various institutions. WT also has it’s own fund that supports refugee education at post graduate level in UK universities.
About 8-10 refugee students benefit from this programme every year. Other partners have been Embassy of Kingdom of Netherlands, ERD, Caritas Spain, DFID, Educate! and the American Ambassadors’ grant in Uganda.
