There are so many needs in Uganda, which we want to address and we are continuously working with the local community to develop new projects that will offer education and reduce poverty for the children and young people. Any projects we undertake have to be cost effective, have maximum impact and have a long term sustainability.
Two Classroom Building – Mugiti
The two community primary schools have been a great success and through the 16 constructed classrooms at our schools, it has allowed us to offer 2 nursery classes and all 7 primary year groups at each school, however we’re currently delivering two classes at our Mugiti Sub- District school within a temporary classroom (a tent under the mango tree). Over the next year we will be raising the funds to construct these final two classrooms to complete the school complex.
Vocational Skills Centres
The vocational training centres have now been established and we have seen a cultural change in the community, with a greater value being placed on the vocational skills and a mindset that they can take control of their future. Over the next year we are looking to develop these projects further with peer education being used to have increased impact in the community, especially with the community agriculture projects.
We are also looking to develop a playground for each school which will support the children’s physical and adolescent development.
