Money & Materials to build a school for vulnerable

This Project is a Community Based Support to Poor and Vulnerable Children; evolved out of Critical Investigations from the Community and other Sources regarding, Intellectual, Physical, Mental, including providing quality Education in a Conducive Environment, delivering Training and Assistance to School Children and Orphans. These children have for the years been abandoned and neglected from broken homes, coupled with Orphans resulting from lack of Parental Guidance, HIV&AIDS and other causes an everyday in Uganda.

 

The project was formed out of deep feelings and commitment to assisting those Children who live Lower Levels of our Society; we are therefore approaching our friends, donors, visitors, volunteers and potential supporters on GlobalGiving.org for  to support us towards the construction of permanent School Structures; where they can effectively learn, have enough space to play and better cared for, including providing them with good diet, social and emotional, and mental growth environment and spiritual components for productive health. As members of the community concerned with good cause at grassroots see the move taken here to raise funds for the construction of the school as extreme poverty in Uganda still makes it difficult for parents / guardians and children have access to quality education and their wellbeing.

 

 

Project Location:  The school is located in Mukono North Municipality, Kimenyedde Sub-county, Mukono District of Central Uganda, about 50 km away Kampala City centre.
