  • Description

    Description

    It is a registered Community Based Organization (CBO). It was founded to give the most less fortunate children and the poorest background whose families can't afford quality education.

    In the year 2006, a private charity primary school project was started here in Buikwe town to give opportunity to children from the less advantaged families and groups of people who cannot afford quality education for their children.

    The school project take in students from 3yrs ? 14yrs of age in classes from Primary 0ne to Primary seven both boys and girls from villages around Buikwe communities through playing football as a tool.

    We work to identify, give support, promote talents and address the needs of the most disadvantaged rural communities, we commit to give opportunity and unconditional primary education to children from the poorest background whose families cannot afford to give.

    In 2012 we introduced playing football at the Mixed Primary School a school project and to give free primary education to children with football talents in the effort to give children opportunity to education. We do witness great improvement in skills and professionalism in football

    Currently the project accommodate 520 students boys and girls from 3 years to 14 years of age; operating on 2.5 acres of land with some facilities as classroom blocks, toilets and dormitories but operating on a very small budget. Out of this big number 60 children are given free education while the 460 pay a small fee raised each school term to facilitate the day-to-day school bills.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    there are different offers for cultural exchange, i.e our worship,
    different geographical features
    the continuous canopy
    There are different customs and etiquette in Uganda that will help our
    volunteer from the cultural exchange. For example, lets take
    Socializing: Ugandans are welcoming and friendly. But there are some
    rules to consider: when greeting someone, always shake hands; make
    small talk and be prudent in controversial topics, like religion; in
    conversation, look away politely as direct eye contact is seen
    aggressive. For couples, keep intimacy private and indoor. This
    includes holding hands. Volunteers are encouraged to interact with the
    local people.
