Summary

Bugabira Community Primary School provides education to 200 children of this category who lack basic scholastic materials and school fees. Classroom space is also limited due to increasing numbers.

Challenge

Masaka has 123,696 total numbers of vulnerable children, which constitute 27.6% of the children population in the district. This has largely resulted into children running on Streets in Nyendo suburb of Masaka ,drug abuse, child labor, sexual abuse, school dropout, child neglect, unwanted pregnancies, and various forms of economic, social and sexual exploitation which further predisposes children to HIV infection and subsequent death. Support us save one life at a time!

Solution

Books, Pens, Uniforms, school fees, Mosquito nets and other basic school materials will help keep children stay in school and this will reduce their vulnerability. The proposed classroom block will help absorb the ever increasing number of needy children joining Bugabira primary school. One dollar makes a big, big difference!

Long-Term Impact

The ultimate goal of Bugabira Primary School is to provide education to all students free-of-charge. At their youthful time, these children will become agents of positive change and will transform their own communities. They deserve your kind support.
