Sixteen out of 100 children in Uganda go to high school. Seven are girls. Only three will graduate, and even fewer will go to college.
“Education brings sustainability to all the development goals, and literacy is the foundation of all learning. It provides individuals with the skills to understand the world and shape it, to participate in democratic processes and have a voice, and also to strengthen their cultural identity.” ~Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director-General.
ASSET will be able to educate 20 female students for $45,000. It is estimated that each student, leaders for life, will become self-sufficient and financially productive. Twenty families will be impacted and as many communities. It is impossible to guess how many people will indirectly be affected. However, at least ten other people will benefit from the graduate's experience.
Make a tax-deductible donation to ASSET today. Help make one student’s dream come true and invest in tomorrow’s African leaders. All donations from U.S. donors are tax-deductible.

ALLIED SOLUTIONS FOR SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION & TRUST INC
Chris Lukolyo founded ASSET in 2008 after graduating from the MBA program at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. Chris was born in Uganda and after receiving a scholarship to attend graduate school, was inspired to work with others to invest in the education of young Ugandan female professionals.
We highly support education, and in particular..education of women who many times are overlooked yet they are half of our world.
Looks like a wonderful cause to me!
Thanks for your continued work on this, Chris!
We are up and live. Barb
