We are unbelievably close to reaching a goal that was just a dream a few weeks ago!!!

With just less than 21,761 US$ and the constructions will be fully funded.


Through very generous donations through GlobalGiving we shall be able to begin the construction of the classroom block - the Latrine construction was started yet to be complmented. The floods in the place have halted construction when the land dries we shall surely resume the construction and laying of the foundation of the classroom block

Help us to help make the poorest of the poor to the best educated of all!!! We are all making the difference between lives in the wicked wheel of poverty - and the glorious freedom of choice for children who would never be able to make choices without a solid basis of health, education, and welfare!!!

Your donations - large or small - are so very appreciated.

Thank you  so much, have a d a blessed holiday season filled with love, light, friends, and family!

School water, sanitation and Hygiene Education have been seen as a priority component around the globe. Children are the best motivators at the community and household level and this is what triggered and gave birth to this project. These schools suffered from: nonexistent, insufficient, water supply, sanitation and hand-washing facilities; and latrines that were not designed to be child friendly and do not function properly.

We want to express our appreciation to all partners for their generosity in support of our project titled, construction of enhanced sanitation facilities. Your financial commitment has incredibly helped and has allowed us to reach our goal. We would like to let you know that your financial inputs towards our proposed project have greatly helped the project turn into a successful and replicable model. Even though the world has experienced hard economical moments, you people have gone a step forward and made the dreams of many marginalised children from poor backgrounds come true.

We 100% acknowledge your financial support. Please know how much you've helped the children and the teachers in this rural primary school and how much we all appreciate it. Again, thank you for all you have done to our organisation and our beneficiaries.

Schools, particularly those in rural areas, often completely lack drinking-water and sanitation and hand washing facilities; alternatively, where such facilities do exist they are often inadequate in both quality and quantity. Schools with poor water, sanitation and hygiene conditions, and intense levels of person-to-person contact, are high-risk environments for children and staff, and exacerbate children’s particular susceptibility to environmental health hazards.

Girls and boys are likely to be affected in different ways by inadequate water, sanitation and

hygiene conditions in schools, and this may contribute to unequal learning opportunities. Sometimes, girls and female teachers are more affected than boys because the lack of sanitary facilities means that they cannot attend school during menstruation.

You did it! Thanks to your generous support, SCOEN has raised $125 raised of $22,211 goal  to contact Classroom block & Latrine for 234 pupils in Uganda at  Acomai Primary School a public school in Bukedea District . Your gift has so far  begun excavating the pit meant for the VIP Latrine.

The Community and Parent are able to contribute the following for the project:

  1. Bricks
  2. Stones & aggregate
  3. Sand
  4. Unskilled labour

Acomai Primary School is surely doing badly there is a need for the infrastructure to make available sustainable facilities, more conducive to accommodate 4 classes and provide a VIP Latrine. To achieve this, a classroom building and one pit Latrine are to be built.
