In Uganda, two-thirds of children drop out of school before completing their primary education? The major cause for this is poverty.
Uganda introduced Universal Primary Education (UPE) in 1997 to provide free primary education for children.

However, parents still have to pay a contribution towards school dues. Additionally, parents pay for books, school uniform, pens and note books. Parents who are struggling to survive on less than $1 or $2 US per day, often cannot afford paying for school fees and requirements. Their children drop out of school and are trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty.
