How It Works
Through individual donations, grants and family foundations, A River Blue currently sponsors fifty-seven students in and around Alebtong, Uganda.
Every year, twenty-six students are sponsored through A River Blue Vocational Training Center which offers a hybrid curriculum that mixes tailoring, agroforestry, tropical agriculture, animal husbandry, English, counseling and business. Students rotate between classes, giving them a variety of skills that offers them more opportunity and a chance to support themselves while build back their community.
A River Blue is limited in the training and education that it can offer. We realize that students have individual needs that should be supported. Therefore, an additional thirty-one students are sponsored by A River Blue through a variety of outside programs including secondary school, catering/hotel management, and various other vocational training programs.
