Our mission is to advance the education, health and well-being of pupils, teachers and communities associated with our three Ugandan schools.

 

We do this through providing teachers, clean water, brick buildings for classrooms, school meals, a boarding house, and large farming projects to enable self sufficiency.

The three schools are thriving and producing excellent education. In addition there is a knock on effect to their communities in terms of clean water supplies, education about malaria prevention, detal health, menstrual health of teenagers, ecology etc.

We now need to establish a large self sufficiency program and we plan to start a 50 acre coffee plantation which will cost £50,000 over three years to establish but then should produce £75,000 income per year which will cover all running costs for the schools. A sponsor is needed.

Rock of Joy Lugala. We are delighted to report that after a long wait we have now completed a new classroom bock at Lugala. These three extra classrooms have enabled us to separate the nursery school off from the primary school and give bright classrooms with plenty of space to learn.

We now need to build the Upper primary School block and are seeking a sponsor for this. It will cost £35,000

This new brick classroom block completes  Lady Grace Primary School which is a major achievement.

This school is thriving and the exam results for entry into secondary school are now as good as the first of our schools which 5 miles away at Rock of Joy Masaka.

We are now looking for a sponsor to replace the rotting wooden building which is the nursery school. This will cost £40,000

Sanitation Traditionally toilets in Uganda have been very deep holes with a wooden platform and a hole. These are very unhygienic and are surrounded by flies, maggots and smells. The government has wisely decided to get schools to put in septic tanks with flushing toilets to educate the students about better hygiene. However these are expensive to install as they need completely new toilet blocks with ceramic toilets, septic tanks and a system to reclaim rain water, store it and pump it up into a header tank. Our first full flushing toilets are now being built with funds raised by West Kirby Grammar School and others.
