Together We Can Make It!

eet Jacob Gum Dek. In 2006, Gabriel and Monica along with their six children sought refuge in Uganda. They had come from the South Sudan which was engaged in an ongoing civil war. Gabriel met Fr. Dunson – and out of this meeting a wonderful opportunity for Gabriel and his family came about. All six children were provided with an education from the St. Kizito Foundation.

Today we are going to focus on one – Jacob – who recently graduated from college with a degree in Information Technology. Jacob joined the St. Kizito Foundation family as a student in primary school. He started going to a nearby day school with his tuition being paid for by the Foundation.

Your Generous Contribution Will Help Educate Students in Uganda
Together We Can Make It!

St. Kizito Foundation supports approximately 300 students in their education and life.  We have students at all levels of study, although our primary focus is to provide our participants with sufficient and appropriate education so that they may earn a living and have a successful life. 

Our students are in schools of their choice, based on school and government standards of acceptance.  Students are assisted by St. Kizito counselors and staff in determining the best placement.   

On these pages, we hope to give you a glimpse of the treasure we believe our participants to be.  Enjoy, and feel free to offer communication or words of wisdom that we can forward to Uganda!
