In 2017, we added San Giovanni as an option for secondary education.
It does not replace Comboni, which still is best for students who are academically strong. Instead, San Giovanni opens the door to secondary sponsors for those children who care about school and work hard, but for whom the investment in Comboni may not make sense. It also offers a good alternative for students who, without secondary school, might be in danger of early marriage, malnutrition, abuse or neglect when still very young.
The Bwindi Watoto Headmaster will keep a watchful eye on these students and keep in touch with the school.
