Why Uniforms?

The children we support are required to wear a uniform to school. It is government mandated and without one they can be turned away. Beyond removing a significant barrier to education, uniforms legitimize the child, instill a sense of pride and put them on a more even playing field.

  • Government Mandates

    School uniforms are mandatory for daily attendance in all of our project countries.

  • School Legitimacy

    In uniform, children are safer traveling to and from school as their uniform legitimizes the school and the child.

  • Well-Being

    When children are able to attend school, there is an overall increase in emotional well-being. In their proper school uniform they feel more confident to engage with their teachers and peers.

  • Self-Esteem

    Uniforms instill a sense of pride and have a tremendous impact on self-worth. Being properly dressed precipitates a sense of belonging.

  • Ensures Clothes are Worn to School

    For many children their uniform is the first new piece of clothing they have ever owned. It creates a sense of community for those who come from challenging circumstances.

Providing a child with the necessary school uniform will change their life forever.
