The North East Humanists provide scholarships for students attending the Isaac Newton High School, Katera, Masaka which is part of the Uganda Humanist Schools Trust
This is a humanist school which accepts children of all religions. It provides education for around 130 students, who study subjects such as biology, physics, chemistry, agriculture, fine arts, music, political education and history
The school caters for orphaned children who are running families on their own, children in disadvantaged families who cannot afford secondary education, abandoned children who can be placed in foster homes near the school, and children who can pay fees to generate income and support the disadvantaged children.
NEH raises funds to support students through a year at the school, with the children sponsored ranging from 12 to 17 years of age.
The annual cost of tuition for each child is £300, including a school uniform
Jean and Barrie Berkley from NEH, as well as Roger McAdam and Jack Jeffrey have all visited the Isaac Newton school which continues to grow and thrive with the support of North East Humanists and other Humanist groups.
