Same sky foundation is a group of philanthropists whose mission is to support the most vulnerable and underserved women. The foundation supports women by providing training so that they build skills and gain confidence to use their voices and support them to become self-sufficient entrepreneurs and role models for their families and communities. Same sky foundation has been in partnership with FAWE Girls school since 2014 when its team led by Francine Lefrak visited FAWE Girls school and interacted with the students, staff and school administration and also presented to them what they do in the Education sector.
Mr. Tony Kasinja visited the USA and got in contact with same sky foundation and here they worked together in setting up a scholarship program for the disadvantaged girls to access education and the first scholarship fund supported 20 girls. Since then the partnership between the two has grown steadily and in 2015 the same sky foundation donated laboratory equipment and text books. And also this is when the scholarship fund begun to function where they began to sponsor fully 37 scholars.
Currently they sponsor 37 girls , 17 are at the university studying at different levels and engaged in different fields like pharmacy, dentistry, nursing, medicine , computer science and electrical engineering and 20 are at secondary school level at FAWE Girls school Gisozi. We are very proud of the partnership that we have with Same sky Foundation in supporting Girls Education and look to furthering it and supporting more underserved women and girls.
