CCF Pader supports post-conflict development in Northern Uganda through formal secondary education and vocational training for marginalised girls.

Pader and Nwoya Girls’ Academies are boarding schools offering education for girls and young women who might otherwise be unable to receive an education. The school accepts girl mothers with their babies.

CCF Pader started in 2002 as a counselling service to girl mothers returning from captivity with the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), during a conflict that stretched more than two decades. The school now focuses on teenage mothers who cannot attend other schools because they have children.

CCF offers scholarships in vocational training or education with full boarding for the students and their young children.

We partner with CCF to provide scholarship funding [link to page] and sit on an advisory board for CCF. We have been supporters of CCF since 2008.
