Thanks to your continued support, the girls and boys attending Bwetyaaba Primary School received new backpacks and school supplies to successfully start the school year. In Uganda, the school year starts in February and ends in December. Many children are eager to have the opportunity to go to school and learn. As you can see on the pictures, the smiling faces of the kids receiving the backpacks and school supplies is very telling. "The children were very excited and joyful", says Stephen Ssemutumba, Executive Director of BUVAD. With 90% of the students at the school orphaned or vulnerable youth, buying a backpack or school supplies is simply not feasible. By supporting GBP, you are positively and directly making a difference in these children's lives and providing them with a chance for a better future.
GBP has partnered with Butakoola Village Association for Development (BUVAD) for three years to support the education of the school's 670 students. It has been an extremely effective partnership and has led to the development of a pen pal exchange program with Bwetyaaba students and the the GBP junior volunteers. We look forward to continuing this partnership and invite you to email us with any questions.
