Through ECAAIR Education support for children victims of traumatic events, in the fiscal year 2015/2016 alone over 200 children (age 7 to 24 years) were supported to access primary and high school education in Uganda. Support has included school fees payments, money to buy books and homework support.

This financial year, ECAAIR’s programs and day today activities have been implemented by 56 staff and 78 interns and volunteers in the three countries (Canada, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda) where we operate. Each of our programs is managed by a coordinator who acts as a team leader and who ensures that responsibilities are well implemented and harmonized.
