Justine and Zarika are both orphans and live with their guardians in Katunguru. They both showed good academic performance and good attitudes.

Scholarship Student Finishes High School

by fontes on 02/12/2009 No comments

Luke has been supported through the Fontes Foundation scholarship programme since 2008. He is from the Katunguru village, and lost both parents. His guardian did not have money to send him to secondary school, so he kept changing schools until he dropped out and stayed for two years in the village. It was therefore a challenge to get back to studying when he went back to school in 2008. Luke has shown impressive determination and discipline with his studies, and he has now successfully graduated from A-level, which means the last two years of high school in Uganda. We would like to congratulate Luke on his graduation, and we would like to thank his donor from Switzerland for sponsoring him. Luke is now looking for a scholarship to study at Makerere University.

HIV/Aids Testing of Scholarship Students

by fontes on 01/04/2009 No comments

The students that form part of the Fontes Foundation scholarship programme are growing up to become young adults and sexually active. The last years, Fontes Foundation has increasingly also supported the students with healthcare, since they are not able to benefit from education when their health is in a poor state. The question of HIV/Aids came up, and Fontes Foundation decided to test all students yearly. It was decided not to make this a criteria for selection in the scholarship programme, rather a way to make sure that the students receive the necessary medication in case infected. All students received counseling and were tested in April 2009, and all tested negative.

In December 2007, after passing through a transparent screening process by Katunguru Primary School, the Fontes Scholarship Coordinator and Fontes Foundation, Gideon Turyahabwe and Luke Byamukama were selected to join the scholarship programme from the start of 2008. They will join Ryeru Boys Camp in Bunyaruguru in senior 4 and 5 respectively. The donor of Gideon is a family in Norway, whereas the donor of Luke is an elderly lady in Switzerland. Both of the boys are orphans, and Luke spent more than two years without going to school because his guardians did not have the money to continue his education.
