BUILDING A SCHOOL IN UGANDA
A $14,5000 CAMPAIGN
$11,500 raised! Help us on this last $3,000 fundraising stretch!
Here are images of the present school
This community school provides Nursery and primary level education to the underprivileged and poorest 160 children in this community who take turns using the premises. It is basically a shack with dirt floor.
The government is demolishing such schools because they are considered structurally unsafe. They are not replacing them nor allowing reconstruction of a similar building. This one’s demolition was only postponed by our presenting our plan for reconstruction. A new school will have to be ready for the school year starting in February because the present one will be demolished in November
In spite of its shabbiness, the school is proof that with good teachers you can have a good school even in a tent or a shack. The graduates are all able to pass the secondary school entrance exam and continue their education, That is why families want their children in these church or community run schools rather than in rural public schools where bad or absent teachers result in the children failing that exam.
The plan is to build four classrooms on the existing school grounds donated by the community. Our campaign’s goal is to raise $14,500 while the community will contribute $2,000 in unskilled labor and material.
