    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Lukalu is located in a multi cultural African environment with people willing to share and learn from each other.
    Being asub urban,it has atrue rural setting that brings out the real African culture.
    Our visitors will get a chance to associate with our communities and the oldmen of the area that can avail them with real information about culture.
    And also, Lukalu community is still leaving African,so cultural exchange is possible.
    Being located near the equator we have sun and rain throughout the year and this is also interesting... Because it can be so cold in the morning and by 9am,its warm with a pleasant sun. And also it can be hot in the morning and by afternoon,its cold. Our environment is just beautiful. In Lukalu you are able to see the sun rise and sunset while appreciating the beauty.
    Just afew kilometers,lukalu is gifted with a national eco tourism site,where people go to see the different bird species.

    Help

    In the Lukalu,we were gifted with agiid climate,but due to lack of sensitisation the community is cutting away trees and forests,this is destroying the natural climate,so if helped with an eco project that looks forward to saving the environment, the environment will get better.
    Teaching;being asub urban school,our pupils have limited exposure to the trueSchool life.So by the help in the school in the field of teaching,our pupils will truely believe the benefits of education through sharing education seccesions with new faces.And also we believe that those developed countries have higher teaching skills that will be of value to our pupils.akes their studying hard.
    For computers and internet,
    Our pupils are mainly from poor families that depend on subsidiary farming to survive and provide scholastic materials. And many of our pupils have never seen a computer. This makes them to under value studying. But with computers,they will be able to get exposure to leaning material and increase their competitiveness nationally. And also computers will enable our teachers get ease with research on better teaching materials.
    We would also appreciate giving new skills of making sanitary pads especially the young female pupils.Many girls in our school who have reaches adoloacence normally stay home during menstral days just because they can't afford pads,these skills will enable them produce pads for them selves cheaply and thus can study daily.
