Under the education program, PEFO facilitates the promotion of rights of children in schools and communities through child Rights clubs. Our aim is to empower both the children and both teaching and non-teaching staff in partner schools to detect a case of child abuse, prevent it and respond to one when it occurs. Club activities are carried out once every week but the transfer of information and monitoring of behevioural change is an everyday activity especially in classes. The clubs through promotion of free of expression among children have created a platform for children to share issues and incidences occurring in their school which are directly related to club initiatives.
PEFO provides school fees bursaries to HIV/AIDS affected orphans; most of whom live under the care of their grandmothers. In northern Uganda an additional category of war affected children is supported too.
PEFO empowers OVC households economically to be able to meet at least 40% of the OVC school fees and additional requirements not met by the projects. Only children from child headed households receive 100% school fees. In addition, OVC receive a minimal school requirement package mainly scholastics (books, pens, mathematical sets, etc).
