(CETE) project is to provide access to quality education support for children in marginalized communities, empowering them to reach their full potential and become agents of positive change in their communities.

Dear followers of Cete Education and Health Services,
As we celebrate the month of May, let us take a moment to reflect on the importance of education and health in shaping the future of our young generation. It is crucial that we, as a community, come together to support and empower our youth to achieve their full potential.
Education is the key to unlocking opportunities and creating a better future for our children. By investing in their education, we are investing in the future leaders, innovators, and change-makers of tomorrow. Let us encourage our young ones to dream big, work hard, and never give up on their goals.
Health is equally important in ensuring the well-being and success of our youth. By promoting healthy habits and providing access to quality healthcare, we can help our children thrive and reach their full potential. Let us prioritize their physical and mental well-being, and create a supportive environment where they can grow and flourish.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our young generation. Let us all commit to learning, growing, and helping each other along the way. May we all strive to be great achievers and inspire others to do the same.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication to the mission of Cete Education and Health Services. Together, we can create a brighter future for all.
Sincerely,

Our vision

is to create a world where every child has equal opportunities to receive a quality education, regardless of their socio-economic background, and where they are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in life

The wars in Kasese district have had a profound impact on the education of children and the support for education in general. Kasese district, located in western Uganda, has been plagued by conflicts and violence for several years, primarily between the government forces and different rebel groups.
Firstly, the wars have disrupted the education and health sectors in Kasese district, causing a significant decline in the enrollment rates of children. Many schools have been forced to close down due to safety concerns, leaving thousands of children without access to quality education. This has particularly affected children from marginalized communities, as they are often the ones being targeted or recruited as child soldiers by the rebel groups. The fear and insecurity have led many parents to keep their children out of school to prevent them from falling victim to the conflicts.
Additionally, the wars have had a detrimental impact on the physical infrastructure of schools and health sectors in Kasese district. Many educational facilities have been destroyed or damaged during the conflicts, making it even more challenging for students, especially children from those marginalized communities to receive education. The lack of proper infrastructure, including classrooms, libraries, and laboratories, hinders the quality of education and reduces the motivation of children to attend school.
Moreover, the sake for education support in Kasese district has declined due to the wars. The ongoing conflicts have diverted the attention and resources of the government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) away from educational initiatives. Funding that should have been allocated to support the education and health system has been redirected towards addressing the immediate needs arising from the conflicts, such as humanitarian aid and military expenditures. Consequently, the availability of resources for promoting education, scholarships, and educational materials has diminished significantly, further hindering children’s access to education.
