Children in class at the Precious Children’s Centre
Providing Financial Support
RMF continued to provide financial support to the Precious Children’s Centre in Kawempe, Kampala, which takes care of orphans and vulnerable children. The funding from RMF is used to purchase of food for the children, improving their health and ability to concentrate on learning.
This has helped to keep more children in class and to stabilize the center’s operations.

After lunch, children are now able to play while learning. Before RMF provided funding for food, children would leave the center at lunchtime and would not concentrate on learning.
