Building bridges to keep brilliant but disadvantaged children in School

The Christine and Nathan Were Foundation [N&CWF] was created in 2019 to support causes in Education for disadvantaged but brilliant children in Uganda and beyond. The foundation identifies and supports children in primary schools in various ways including fees, scholastic materials, and sanitary towels for the girl child. Nathan Were the co-founder of the foundation experienced a turbulent time in his formative years of school due to a lack of school fees. He collected garbage and plastics to raise money for scholastic materials and often worked as a porter at school in exchange for fees.
