  • Description

    Description

    Head to rural village school in Uganda and you will see a block of
    building,often made out of uneven timber,pieced together.Enter one of
    these buildings and you will find compacted dirt floors coated with
    manure to keep the dust down,uncomfortable wooden desks,and sometimes a
    chalk board.the only light shining in is that which peeks through the
    cracks between the timber walls and door less entry way Rarely do you
    find things such as electricity,running water, library,a computer lab,
    or play ground.

    Did you know that Uganda,education is not free? parents and caretakers
    have to pay school fees for their children to attend school, and usually
    ,the higher the fees one pays, the better the education.But what
    happens when you enter a rural village attached to a school like the one
    described above ? you find families struggling to put enough food on
    table ,let one pay for fees.it is often children of these families, that
    get left behind when it comes to education.

    I am a Ugandan community member, working to change this.
    I and my family saw a need in their rural community of Rubombo, Uganda
    and donated the land and started up infrastructure to found the
    primary school

    The primary school was created provided quality education that
    will develop underprivileged children's academic standing. st.
    the place aims to help the children of low income families, HIV
    positive children, children of disintegrated families.
    the school serves ages 4 - 13 years through both per-primary and primary
    programs, and currently, offers education at a greatly discounted
    price to nearly 200 children, and the demand is growing. the only
    problem is, this school is very similar to the described above.

    The organization is geared towards
    improving the standards of living of the marginalized population in
    Isingiro District Kashumba Sub-County.

    The organization is registered as an
    indigenous, non-profit making, non-denominational, charitable
