Les Ecoliers de Kampala

"Les Ecoliers de Kampala" is a non-profit organization created in 2012 under the French law Loi 1901. Our scope of action is located in Uganda with a particular focus on the improvment of life and education conditions of children, young adults, men and women living in the suburbs of Kampala. We help two categories of people: the children studying in BEUPA schools (e.g: schools out of the "official" system "Basic Education in Urban Poverty Areas) and the men and women willing to start a small sustainable and financially self-sufficient business (with the aim of financing access to education for their children).

Mission

"Les Ecoliers de Kampala" is a non-profit organization created in 2012 under the French law Loi 1901. Our scope of action is located in Uganda with a particular focus on the improvment of life and education conditions of children, young adults, men and women living in the suburbs of Kampala. We help two categories of people: the children studying in BEUPA schools (e.g: schools out of the "official" system "Basic Education in Urban Poverty Areas) and the men and women willing to start a small sustainable and financially self-sufficient business (with the aim of financing access to education for their children).

Programs

With the strong support of our local partner Africa Future Glory, we are supporting 186 children in 6 BEUPA Learning Centres with basic scholastic materials to ensure that children attend school. These centres target children who cannot afford the requirements needed in the formal schools. There are currently 21 BEUPA centres operating under Kampala Capital City Authority. Some of these are no longer functional because they cannot afford renting fees. We identified 6 out 21 BEUPA learning centres to start with. These include; 1. Kibuye I BEUPA Learning centre 2. Ndeeba BEUPA Learning centre 3. Kabowa BEUPA Learning centre 4. Kibuye II BEUPA Learning centre 5. Luzira BEUPA Learning centre 6. Mulago BEUPA Learning centreees. We selected Kibuye I BEUPA as a pilot-project for our small-scale concrete actions (before deployment on other BEUPAS). The actual project consists in: renovation of the 2 classrooms (new roof, cement on the ground, cement around the premises), Feeding project for the 65 kids, installing a water tank and a water purifier, creating a school poultry house to get revenues and increase protein intakes for kids, develop sponsorship programs
