30 Schools!

Kongota
Kongota

Building Tomorrow reached an important milestone by breaking ground on its 30th school, Vunza, earlier this spring. Construction at Vunza has progressed well with nearly 100 community members helping with backfilling.

Construction continues at several other sites. At Bwogero #28, the foundation walls and backfilling is complete on both blocks and the slab has been poured. At Akolodongo #26, the foundation walls and backfilling is complete. An Angerepo #23, walling continues, and digging the latrines has commenced. At Wagoma #29, work has started on the super structure of block one.

Four new schools have opened this term. They are Mayira, Kongota, Kisaluwoko and Bugabo. It is wonderful to see children in class learning in their new schools!

Construction will soon begin on several additional sites, and the team in Uganda has grown to help support Building Tomorrow's work.

Thank you for your support!

BT Schools #28 and #29

Construction is now underway at two additional sites, Building Tomorrow's 28th and 29th schools in Uganda. At Bwogero in Ssembabule District crews have finished digging the foundation and will soon start construction on the foundation walls. At Wagoma in Nakasongola district, crews have set the foundation perimeters, and have started digging the foundation. Building Tomorrow aims to break ground on a new school every three weeks!

Though a commitment to gender equality has always been at the core of BT’s work, in early 2015 BT sought to memorialize this pledge. BT’s formal commitment to gender equality is as follows:Strongly committed to gender equality and the belief that education is a human and civil right, Building Tomorrow empowers women and men, and girls and boys to value education for all. Through its programs, Building Tomorrow works to address historic and cultural barriers so together girls and boys have access to safe, permanent and local schools where they can receive a quality education.

On Tuesday, December 2, community members and parents/families of future students made a public, formal commitment to support the education of their children.

#26 - Akolodongo
groundbreaking: November 20, 2014
Having just gotten started a couple of weeks ago, community volunteers have cleared the land and dug the foundation. Now masons have begun work on the foundation walls. The team will soon start the laborious process of digging the latrines.




construction on Kisaluwoko
#25 - Kisaluwoko
groundbreaking: November 6, 2014
Construction is well underway and sticking to schedule at Kisaluwoko! At present, work on building the school's foundation is nearly finished and they've begun to dig the latrines. Next up: walling!





#24 - Guyaguya
groundbreaking: October 24, 2014
With construction at the foundation level, work is currently on hold in Guyaguya due to the heavy rains. All of the roads to the site have been flooded, making material delivery virtually impossible. At present, the construction team is waiting it out and as soon as things dry up, they'll be back to work! 


construction at Angerepo
#23 - Angerepo
groundbreaking: September 25, 2014
In light of the incredibly  heavy rains that have plagued much of this district over the past few months, construction has progressed very slowly. However, the team reports that the foundation of the first classroom block is finally finished and they will begin walling very soon!



construction at Isingo

#22 - Isingo
groundbreaking: September 6, 2014
The team is making record pace at Isingo! The first classroom block is just about finished; the roof is up, windows & doors are installed, and they are plastering the interior walls.  Walls on the second classroom block are nearly to the roof, too!



construction at Kongota
#21 - Kongota
groundbreaking: August 14, 2014
Work has started on the roof of the first classroom block & the masons are nearing the level of the ring beam for the second block of classrooms. Toilets are complete & the grounds of the school are looking better every day (the one benefit of the incredibly heavy rains!).
