This is aimed at specifically supporting refugee children and youths in the school system. Extra support is provided for children to deal with any resettlement issues which may have an impact on their academic performance.

By addressing issues such as, social and peer relations, nutrition, individual development, recreation, and language acquisition, this program works to reduce stress in children and allows them to focus on and excel in their academic performance. Support services are provided to any Government assisted Refugee children and youth between the ages of 6-15 that are assigned to the Tooro’s Pride Resettlement Centre
