OUR MAIN ACTIVITY IS AIMED AT PROMOTING EDUCATION IN THE LANGO SUB-REGION OF NORTHERN UGANDA
 The educational standard in northern Uganda as a whole has been on the downward trend for over a decade. In the last five years it has seen a nose dive in alarming proportions. The Lango Sub-region has borne the brunt of this, as evident from the poor exams results of schools that otherwise used to have stellar performance not too long ago. Unless something drastic is done, whole generations of Langi will have a very bleak future, given that education is the greatest key to success.

Many factors such as poverty, HIV/AIDS and attendant problems, and lately the LRA insurgency have been contributory. But a major factor that may not be easily recognizable is the fact that guidance and counseling is lacking in schools. Where there is any semblance of it, students take them for granted, having lost hope.

It is upon this background that saw an urgent need to motivate, encourage, guide and counsel the students in ways they have not known before. They need to know that there is hope even in a seemingly hopeless situation they find themselves, and that no condition is permanent.

The LDF has shown a very good
example of what cooperation amongst the Langi can do; they have also demonstrated what
cooperation with well-wishers can do. We must therefore applaud them and give them all the
support each one of us can muster so that the benefit of their efforts can replicate in many
years to come through the seeds they are sowing now.
